About the book:

The spectacular finale of the New York Times bestselling trilogy, which began with Mr. Mercedes (Edgar Award Winner) and Finders Keepers In End of Watch, the fiendish Mercedes killer drives his enemies to suicide, and when Bill Hodges and Holly Gibney If they can’t find a way to stop him, they become victims themselves.

Something has awakened in room 217 of the Clinic for Traumatic Brain Injuries in the Lake Region. Something evil. Brady Hartsfield, perpetrator of the Mercedes massacre, in which eight people were killed and many more seriously injured, has been in a vegetative state in the clinic for five years. Anything nearing full recovery is unlikely, according to his doctors. But behind the drool and stare, Brady is awake with deadly new powers that allow him to wreak havoc without ever leaving his hospital room.

Retired Police Detective Bill Hodges, the unlikely hero of Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers, now heads an investigative body with partner Holly Gibney, the woman who dealt Hartsfield the blow that landed him on the brain injury ward. When Bill and Holly are called on a suicide scene related to the Mercedes massacre, they are embroiled in their most dangerous case yet, which puts their lives at risk, as well as that of Bill’s heroic young friend Jerome Robinson and his teenage sister Barbara. Brady Hartsfield is back planning revenge not just on Hodges and his friends, but on an entire city.

In End of Watch, Stephen King brings the Hodges trilogy to a terrifyingly terrifying conclusion, combining the detective stories of Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers with the heart-wrenching, supernatural suspense that has been his trademark best-seller. The result is a disturbing look at human vulnerability and terrifying tension. Nobody does it better than King.

Stephen King has written over fifty books and two hundred short stories. He has won the World Fantasy Award, several Bram Stoker Awards and the O. Henry Award for his story “The Man in the Black Suit”.
