Sep 28, 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. However, with both forensic evidence and multiple witnesses there is no doubt that Terry abducted and killed this child so Detective Ralph Anderson has him arrested in the most public and humiliating way possible.
How could a man be in two places at once? The infuriating thing about this book is that the first half had a lot of promise. King seems to have been inspired by the Harlan Coben style of thrillers whose hooks generally revolve around circumstances that seem impossible.
In fact, Uncle Stevie even acknowledges this by actually having Coben himself be a plot point in the book. And this works for a while as King builds up the scenario with an intriguing mix of clues and witnesses that both absolutely prove that Terry must be the murderer while also making it utterly impossible for him to have done it.
When Harlan Coben writes his books the resolutions are based in reality, not the paranormal. It was a supernatural monster. The X-Files is the obvious example of this, but that series would generally show us the weird stuff in the opening scene every week then they would try to unravel it for the rest of the episode.
Since this is a Stephen King novel with a red-eyed monster on the cover a reader should know from the start that something spooky is in the mix.
Yet, he gives us absolutely nothing about that angle for the first half of the book. The extra sad thing is that Uncle Stevie has done this plot before, and he did it better there.
The second issue I had with this is that this is linked to the Mr. I thought that series was done so to have a character from them show up at the half way point here as a surprise and then play a major role in the proceedings felt like false advertising.
Another irritating aspect is that And this has spoilers for End of Watch view spoiler [ I found Bill Hodges in those books to be a reckless jackass who did nothing except get innocent people killed before he finally died himself. But the goddamn hero worship of him by Holly here made me nuts. He was a shitty detective and nothing special as a person.
I also found myself nitpicking a lot of stuff here. Terry is described as being under 40 yet at one point his wife is remembering how they used to listen to Beatles albums in his college apartment, and she idly wonders if John Lennon was dead by then or not.
A guy who is 40 today was born in John Lennon was murdered in So Lennon had been dead for almost two decades by the time Terry was in college. I also found the main break that finally gets the plot moving toward the supernatural stuff to be highly unlikely. Yet, somehow even though a guy who works at the hospital Terry was visiting his father in was also accused of a high profile child murder, no one ever notices the link before Holly?
Unless he tricks me again.Looks like there's trouble for the villain. The heroes destroyed his Phlebotinum research facility, the government realized that the man they thought was the president was actually an evil robotic duplicate, and his entire accounting staff has just turned into leslutinsduphoenix.com's his response?
