The Outsider (Finders Keepers #4) Reviews
This started off really good but it slowed down towards the end. I was happy there was some connection to the Bill Hodges series (which I liked a lot and recommend you read first since there are some spoilers here!) but I was overall underwhelmed.
Recommend it but it's not for everyone.
I’ve been reading Uncle Stevie for about 35 years now, and there’s been plenty of peaks and valleys in my fandom. This time out he found a whole new way to disappoint me.
A young boy has been brutally murdered, and all the clues point directly at Terry Maitland. This is shocking because Terry is a happily married family man and all-around good guy whose coaching of youth sports has made him one of the most popular and respected people in town, and there’s never been the slightest hint of any kind ...more
"Reality is thin ice, but most people skate on it their whole lives and never fall through until the very end."
An eleven-year-old's body is found in a park following a brutal murder. Eyewitness accounts and fingerprint evidence point to the popular Little League coach and teacher, Terry Maitland. But Terry also has an alibi for the time of the crime...

Guess who actually finished a Stephen King book?
I abandoned both Doctor Sleep and Revival because I simply didn't have the attention span to plow through them. I completely passed on Sleeping Beauties after a couple of trusted GR friends told me it probably wasn't for me. Thankfully The Outsider's quick pacing and fascinating characters kept me turning the pages well into the night when I should have been sleeping.
This is for you Mr. King:
In The Outsider Mr. King does what he does best, he op ...more
If you’re a fan of the X-Files, meaning you can deal with story lines that can’t be fully explained by science, you will probably enjoy this book. I loved Mr. Mercedes, but part of the reason I liked that novel so much was because things were explained by old-fashioned detective work. In this book, we have to stretch our imaginations. A man considered to be the pillar of the community is accused of a heinous crime. Numerous people saw him walking around covered in blood. It’s a small town and as ...more
*no spoiler review* However, if you don't want to know anything about this book, please save this review for later.
I have been waiting for a book like this from King for a long, long time. I'd say I've wanted a book like this since 11/22/63-- I loved that book but it wasn't horror. After 11/22/63 we had a string of "middle of the road" books or good books that fell just short of horror for this Constant Reader. Dr. Sleep, The Bill Hodges Trilogy, Revival, Bazaar of Bad Dreams, Sleeping Beauties. ...more

A Crime, an investigation, confusion......

Several eye witness accounts also place Maitland as having contact with the youth prior to his death, one even saw Maitland putting the boys bicycle in his white van. Police detective Ralph Anderson arrests Maitland during a baseb ...more
