Master storyteller Stephen King, whose “restless imagination is a power that cannot be contained” (The New York Times Book Review), presents an unforgettable and relentless #1 New York Times bestseller about a good guy in a bad job.

Chances are, if you’re a target of Billy Summers, two immutable truths apply: You’ll never even know what hit you, and you’re really getting what you deserve. He’s a killer for hire and the best in the business—but he’ll do the job only if the assignment is a truly bad person. But now, time is catching up with him, and Billy wants out. Before he can do that though, there’s one last hit, which promises a generous payday at the end of the line even as things don’t seem quite on the level here. Given that Billy is among the most talented snipers in the world, a decorated Iraq war vet, and a virtual Houdini when it comes to vanishing after the job is done, what could possibly go wrong? How about everything.

Part war story and part love letter to small-town America and the people who live there, this spectacular thriller of luck, fate, and love will grip readers with its electrifying narrative, as a complex antihero with one last shot at redemption must avenge the crimes of an extraordinarily evil man. You won’t ever forget this stunning novel from master storyteller Stephen King…and you will never forget Billy.


  • Vigorously addictive read

    By Kire Snewo
    One of the most glorious reads I’ve taken from Stephen King. Hopefully If this ever gets picked up for an adaptation, that ‘they’ keep Bill Summers story as is.
  • A Good Read

  • Greatness

    By SydneyAaliyah
    Another example of his story telling genius. Loved it. The characters and the journey they took. A bad man with a heart of gold. Also love the cameos in true King fashion.

  • This book is frustrating

    By Vine lover 123
    I’m not done with the book yet, I just got to chapter 16. But every time I say “after this chapter I’m gonna stop for the night and go to sleep” King ends the chapter on a cliff hanger that makes you not want to put the book down! I have lost sleep because of this book! But that’s okay because it’s so worth it. Please buy this book. You won’t be disappointed
  • Twists and Turns

    Interesting story with twists and turns make it a fun read.
  • Tried but….

    By FRlO
    While I appreciate the very detailed and intricacies attached to locations, I felt it was overwhelming. Got to chapter 5 and gave up.
