#1 New York Times Bestseller

From legendary storyteller Stephen King, whose “restless imagination is a power that cannot be contained” (The New York Times Book Review), comes a thrilling new novel about a good guy in a bad job.

Billy Summers is a man in a room with a gun. He’s a killer for hire and the best in the business. But he’ll do the job only if the target is a truly bad guy. And now Billy wants out. But first there is one last hit. Billy is among the best snipers in the world, a decorated Iraq war vet, a Houdini when it comes to vanishing after the job is done. So what could possibly go wrong?

How about everything.

This spectacular can’t-put-it-down novel is part war story, part love letter to small town America and the people who live there, and it features one of the most compelling and surprising duos in King fiction, who set out to avenge the crimes of an extraordinarily evil man. It’s about love, luck, fate, and a complex hero with one last shot at redemption.

You won’t put this story down, and you won’t forget Billy.


  • Good not great

    By DJ Sne-K P
    It’s a good book to read with some good action and great detail but it lacks in creativity. Follows what I think is the typical pattern for stories like this. I did enjoy it but it lacked a bit for me to be wowed. Not King’s best but not his worst either. Just good.
  • He does it again

    By TurtleTurtleSoup
    By far, on of the best reads! King does it every time! Captivating me from the first chapter till the last…
  • Politics

    By My2Toys
    It’s unfortunate that so many writers, musicians and actors feel the need to force their political opinions on the rest of us. I’ve noticed that it’s only the liberals that are so inclined. I personally believe celebrities should keep their political opinions private. I’ve quit reading books by these authors or watching these actors who can’t keep their politics out of their public creations. I now wait and read reviews before purchasing their products.

  • A masterpiece

    By petelx
    Brilliantly written. I hope King writes. Ore fiction devoid of monsters and supernatural events. He is one of the great American writers and novels like this should be in his future.
  • Pieces felt stole from other mediums

    By Busterfun
    I enjoyed this book but as others pointed out , it felt like a knock off of a variety of tv shows including Succession. I find it sad that King believes only good people are liberals and bad people are conservative. In my lifetime I’ve discovered that the truly evil walk in both parties. As Is the case with most King books he doesn’t really stick the landing.
  • Snooze…

    By Longhorn5555
    Boring, shallow, definitely not up to his usual standards. Plodding pace and one dimensional characters you could care less about. I gave up half way through.
  • A touch too much political commentary

    By SLM1932
    A touch too much political commentary inserted. Otherwise, great book!
  • Billy Summers

    By Butch 319
    Excellent book! My only gripe was, he had to bring politics , And something totally not the about Trump, into it. With no need at all. Stick to the awesome stories cus I almost threw this in the trash.
