Finders Keepers – Stephen King – 3.5 stars

I swayed between a 3 and 4 stars for Finders Keepers, it was a slow burner for me. I thought it was very heavy on character development which left the plot simmering in the background. However it was well thought out and the links and ties to Mr Mercedes were referenced throughout.
Hodges, Jerome and Holly make a great team and I’d have liked to have seen more of them from early on.
In the background we still have Mr Mercedes, the killer, from the first book in hospital with severe brain injury but I have a feeling there’s more to happen with him.
Like Mr Mercedes the last part of the book comes into its own with the fast paced and gripping climax – looking forward to the 3rd in the trilogy to see how it all pans out
