'Adventurously shape-shifting yet always disciplined, it's a dazzling return to form' The Sunday Times 'A thriller with a surprisingly heartfelt and redemptive ending, Billy Summers is a compelling and engrossing read' Sunday Express From legendary storyteller and No. 1 bestseller 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.

  1. Den snälla yrkesmördaren
    Emmel G, 9 september 2021

    Jag gillade boken. Det är samma stil på berättandet som i Bag of bones och 11.22.63 men utan övernaturligt inslag. Det handlar fortfarande om kampen mellan det goda och det onda men gränserna suddas ut allt mer och det är svårt att inte fatta tycke för yrkesmördaren Billy, som bara mördar onda människor. Kan man vara god om man gör onda gärningar?

  2. Prickskytt med hjärta och samvete.
    -, 17 augusti 2021

    Undertecknad har läst och följt Stephen King i snart 40 år och läst det mesta ur hans enorma produktion. Inte allt har varit fantastiskt men inget har heller varit dåligt. Och att kunna hålla sig på topp så länge som King har gjort är imponerande och han är otvivelaktigt en av världens bästa berättare. Och frågan är om han någonsin varit både bättre och mer i ropet än han är just nu. Och med senaste boken "Billy Summers" fortsätter han röra sig längre bort från det som gjorde honom till den h...

A dazzlingly shapeshifting novel that, like its antihero, only pretends to be easy to pigeonhole. Disciplined but adventurous, equally good at action scenes and in-depth psychology * The Sunday Times * A thriller with a surprisingly heartfelt and redemptive ending, Billy Summers is a compelling and engrossing read * Sunday Express * King's killer instinct hits the mark again... Without abandoning his blood-chilling propensities, he has transformed himself into one of the most adroit and accomplished crime writers in the US. King has negotiated the shifting of gears with the kind of panache that befits the "ultimate storyteller" (for once, publisher hyperbole is justified). * The I * His best book in years . . . He may always be considered a horror novelist, but King is doing the best work of his later career when the ghosts are packed away and the monsters are all too human * Guardian * Storytelling genius * Telegraph * Adventurously shape-shifting yet always disciplined, it's a dazzling return to form * The Sunday Times * Devoured it ... it's such a page-turner -- Martin Clunes * Radio Times * It's a novel with a heart-stopping, heartfelt conclusion * Daily Express, Books of the Year * Stephen King is primarily known as a master of horror, but at heart he is a hardcore thriller writer * Irish Independent, Books of the Year * A cracking noir * RTE Guide, Books of the Year * A brilliantly enjoyable novel with a thrilling conclusion * Irish Times, Books of the Year * Stephen King combines a story of corruption in high places with a lyrical portrait of small-town life and a bittersweet love story * Daily Mail * Disciplined but adventurous, equally good at action scenes and psychology, King shows with this novel that, at 74, he's . . . at the top of his game * The Sunday Times * [An] excellent crime caper * Irish Times *
