(From the publisher):
"Wake up, genius." So begins King's instantly riveting story about a vengeful reader. The genius is John Rothstein, an iconic author who created a famously beloved character, Jimmy Gold, but also hasn't published a book for decades. Morris Bellamy is livid, not just because Rothstein has stopped providing books, but because the nonconformist Jimmy Gold sold out for a career in advertising. Morris kills Rothstein and empties the safe of cash, yes, but the real treasure is a trove of notebooks containing at least one more Gold novel.
Morris hides the money and the notebooks and then is locked away in a high security prison for a different crime. Decades later, a young teen named Pete Saunders, whose father was injured in the "Mr. Mercedes" killings, finds the treasure, and now it is Pete and his family whom Bill Hodges, Holly Gibney and Jerome Robinson must rescue from the ever more deranged and vengeful Morris when he is released from prison after thirty-five years and wants the money and the notebooks back.
Not since "Misery" has King played with the notion of a reader whose obsession with the writer gets dangerous.
