Cover & Synopsis Revealed for Stephen King's Finders Keepers

FindersHero2.jpg

If there's one thing that you can't accuse Stephen King of, it's laziness.

The prolific author, who has published 54 novels and nearly 200 short stories, has another on the way in the form of Finders Keepers. It's due on June 2nd, and is the second in a trilogy that started with Mr Mercedes; Finders Keepers will hit stores almost exactly a year after the first book, so we'd make a note to keep June 2nd 2016 free to read the conclusion.

The publishers, Scribner, have unveiled the artwork and, unsurprisingly, it follows very much in the footsteps of its predecessor. Meanwhile, the synopsis has also been revealed - you can read it below.

“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 famous character, Jimmy Gold, but who 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 has sold out for a career in advertising. Morris kills Rothstein and empties his 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 he is locked away for another crime. Decades later, a boy named Pete Saubers finds the treasure, and now it is Pete and his family that Bill Hodges, Holly Gibney, and Jerome Robinson must rescue from the ever-more deranged and vengeful Morris when he’s released from prison after thirty-five years.

Not since Misery has King played with the notion of a reader whose obsession with a writer gets dangerous. Finders Keepers is spectacular, heart-pounding suspense, but it is also King writing about how literature shapes a life—for good, for bad, forever.
