In this new novel, Holly once again claims the spotlight, and must face some of her most depraved adversaries yet. When Penny Dahl calls the Finders Keepers detective agency hoping for help locating her missing daughter, Holly is reluctant to accept the case. Her own mother has just died, and Holly is supposed to be taking time off. But something in Penny Dahl's desperate voice makes it impossible for Holly to turn her down. Mere blocks from where Bonnie Dahl disappeared live Professors Rodney and Emily Harris. They are the picture of bourgeois respectability: married octogenarians, devoted to each other, semi-retired lifelong academics. But they are harboring an unholy secret in their well-kept, book-lined home, one that may be related to Bonnie's disappearance. And it will prove nearly impossible to discover what they are up to: they are smart, they are patient, and they are ruthless. Holly must summon all her formidable talents to outhink and outmaneuver this brilliant and twisted pair in this chilling new masterwork from Stephen King.… (mere)

I've really enjoyed Stephen King's detective novels, even though he sometimes veers back into horror. He's set up a solid series with Holly Gibney, a socially awkward middle-aged woman, running the Finders Keepers agency, working with Pete, a retired cop, and with part-time assistance from Jerome and Barbara Robinson, teenage prodigies. This installment centers firmly on Holly, with Pete out of action with covid and the Robinson siblings helping out, but preoccupied with their own lives.

King lets readers know from the beginning who the bad guys are, yet keeps the suspense level high as Holly slowly pieces together the clues, missing a few, finding some red herrings along the way. This novel isn't horror, although there is plenty of horrible events along the path to solving this one. I enjoyed this novel and love King's foray into a genre I love and how he has set things up for this to be a solid series. At this point, King is guaranteed a bestseller slot for every book he writes and it's to his credit that he is continuing to write with such energy and imagination. ( )

Cuando Penny Dahl contacta con Finders Keepers para que la ayuden a encontrar a su hija, algo en la voz desesperada de la mujer hace que Holly Gibney se vea obligada a aceptar el trabajo.

A poca distancia del lugar en el que Bonnie Dahl desapareció, viven los profesores Rodney y Emily Harris. Son la quintaesencia de la respetabilidad burguesa: un matrimonio octogenario y dedicado de académicos semiretirados. Nadie diría que, en el sótano de su impecable casa forrada de libros, esconden un secreto directamente relacionado con la desaparición de Bonnie.

Son astutos, pacientes y despiadados, y obligarán a Holly a emplear sus habilidades al máximo y a arriesgarlo todo si quiere cerrar el caso más oscuro al que se ha enfrentado jamás.

While I enjoy most of Kings books this one was a little disappointing to me; King has a strong dislike for President Trump and he lets it show in the book. I read fiction to get a break from "the real world", so to have Trump constantly brought up in the book was a HUGE disappointment. I realize as the author King can work President Trump into his story line all he wants but that doesn't mean I have to like or support it. King should stick to fiction writing and leave politics out.

This is truly memorable story-telling, narrated from several perspectives: the criminal and a detective, as well as the hunted and their hunter. The telling is fuelled by a strong plot and several vivid characters, set against a background of suspense and dread. The sheer ordinariness of evil is highlighted. It's not a story for those with a weak stomach, though in the style of a cozy (this is not one of those), most of the grisly stuff takes place off stage.

The covid "through-line" anchors the story in time, but as time passes, may come to date it.

I was left with a deep sense of regret and melancholia, best described by the police detective to Holly upon her discovery of the crime scene:

"This case has taught me a lesson, Gibney. Just when you think you've seen the worst human beings have to offer, you find out you're wrong. There's no end to evil."

All in all, it's a remarkable story to read and think about. ( )

A masterpiece by a master storyteller.

Completely unputdownable.

Not a classic detective murder mystery, because the Author chooses to tell us early in the book whodunit, but a superb investigation led by a remarkable character, the characterisation throughout is brilliant. At times dark harrowing and tense, at others laugh out loud funny, but always engaging entertaining and thrilling.
There are numerous references to previous cases involving some of the characters, but this in no way spoilt my enjoyment of this classic book, just made me want to read the rest.
Completely and utterly recommended. ( )
