Stephen King has a new book out. So much for retirement. This book was published in paperback from Hard Case Crime. One of Brian’s coworkers had the book otherwise we probably wouldn’t have heard about it. It was a story about a man who died on a beach and how he finally was identified thanks to the work of two newspapermen. The story was told from the perspective of the newspapermen to a woman they were hiring to work at their paper. As usual, the characters were good (when doesn’t Stephen King have good characters?). I had a little trouble following the book at the beginning because I was reading it at the veterinarian’s and was having trouble concentrating (because I had other things to worry about). But, once I got into it, it was a pretty quick read. The ending kind of sucked, though. Brian, in particular, really didn’t like it. Still, it was definitely worth reading.
