✪ Billy Summers ✪ Stephen King ✪



Billy Summers is a man in a room with a gun. He's a killer for hire and the best in the business. But he'll do the job only if the target is a truly bad guy. And now Billy wants out. But first there is one last hit. Billy is among the best snipers in the world, a decorated Iraq war vet, a Houdini when it comes to vanishing after the job is done. So what could possibly go wrong?

How about everything.

This spectacular can't-put-it-down novel is part war story, part love letter to small town America and the people who live there, and it features one of the most compelling and surprising duos in King fiction, who set out to avenge the crimes of an extraordinarily evil man. It's about love, luck, fate, and a complex hero with one last shot at redemption.




This is a slower paced book than we usually get with a Stephen King   story, however I feel that if it had been any faster paced, it would not have worked as well as it did.

I also liked that there wasn't any pnr/spn aspects to this story, it is all human nature and all the good and the bad that it can be.

Billy Summers shows that you should not judge a person on your assumptions. He is a master at what he does, and should never been underestimated.

There is such a range of good guys, bad guys and I don't know who to trust guys, that Mr King kept us on our feet the whole way through.

And that ending- say whaaaat?!? I was definitely not expecting that - well played Mr King, well played.

I would like more books like this in the future.
