End of Watch; Stephen King
Book #3 of The Bill Hodges trilogy
Scribner - 2016
The much anticipated third book of the Bill Hodges Trilogy opens with a flashback to 7 years earlier when a deranged driver, Brady Hartsfield, driving a stolen Mercedes plows the vehicle into a crowd of people waiting in line for a job fair to open. In that incident many people died and others were permanently disabled.
Brady Hartsfield is now in a coma at the Lakes Region Traumatic Brain Injury Clinic. In his condition what more harm could he possibly do to unsuspecting people? The answer would be plenty! Behind the blank stares lurks new powers, more evil and the possibility of more deaths.
Bill Hodges, a retired detective now with a private practice returns once again in this installment and he is pretty sure that Brady just may be faking his coma. Holly Gibney, socially awkward but, a delightful character returns as well working closely with Hodges.
I really enjoyed this series and it's one you really should read in order: Mr. Mercedes, Finder's Keepers and End of Watch. There is violence, suicide and acts of revenge throughout this story, so as long as you don't mind reading about such things in fiction, I do recommend this series. If you are obsessed with video games, this particular story may give you a few extra chills as well.
