Mr. Mercedesby Stephen King
Stephen King finally digs his teeth fully into the run down crime fighter/retired detective genre. This book is centered around Bill Hodges, the brilliant, "ret-det" as he calls himself, all around good guy who is stalked by the seemingly harmless, but actually wants nothing more than to see the world burn, as he writes in his letter to our hero the ex-cop, Mr. Mercedes. This book brings to bare all of Mr. King's considerable talent and experience in building a believable world and filling it with wonderfully creative characters. This tight, nail-biting, adventure into the perverted psyche of someone with a calling to kill will keep you turning the page well into the night. I know I did! -- Added by jgurecki002 on 02/22/2017
How the Program Works
Carmel Clay Public Library's programming focus for 2017 is science and technology, and our Adult Winter Reading Program is getting in on the fun by asking you to Plug Into Reading. You might even win a Kindle Fire!
We have a large collection of fiction and nonfiction titles that explore science and technology, and we encourage our winter reading participants to check them out. You don't have to read a book on these topics to participate in the program, any book will count toward the 6 titles you can record.More..
