Publisher's Summary

Shortlisted for the Audio Publisher’s Association Audie Award 2016 for Best Male Narrator.

1978: Meet Morris Bellamy, the man who robs the safe of America's most famous reclusive writer, John Rothstein. But it isn't just the money he is interested in. Morrie is obsessed with the author's notebooks and is prepared to kill the author for them.

2009: Meet young Pete Saubers, whose father was knocked down by an out-of-control Mercedes in a job line-up. When he discovers a buried trunk of money and notebooks of a famous writer, he has the means to rescue his family from poverty. If he can keep it secret.

2013: Morrie is up for parole. And he's hell-bent on recovering the notebooks.

That's when retired detective Bill Hodges - who has set up a company called Finders Keepers - discovers the scheme.

Finders Keepers is spectacular suspense. It is also King writing about how literature shapes a life - for good, for bad, for ever.

Read by award-winning narrator Will Patton, who was nominated for an Audie Award in the Solo Narration - Male category for his work on both Mr. Mercedes and Doctor Sleep.

    A great read that is fast paced and is on point. A great addition to Mr Mercedes. This new style King is a welcome change.

    Story
    "A less-than-thrilling follow-up"

    Although "Finders Keepers" is the second book of the Bill Hodges Trilogy, Hodges himself doesn't make an appearance until halfway through the novel. In this book, he is a supporting character. Since he was the star of the first book, his notable absence for the majority of the story has a negative impact on the experience.

    Instead, the novel follows the teenage son of one of the City Centre Massacre's injured victims. Running parallel to him is the antagonist of the story, who after burying a suitcase full of loot from a robbery 30 years previously, returns to claim it. Only it's already been found by our young protagonist. Inevitably they cross paths and drama ensues.

    Will Patton's performance is once again faultless. He gives each character their own unique personality and has great range. The story isn't bad by any means. But it feels mediocre after the brilliant cat-and-mouse story that was "Mr Mercedes".

    Absolutely brilliant! even better than Mr Mercedes and I thought that would be hard to beat! thrilling story at a thrilling pace! Will Paton is an AMAZING performer, he really brings to life each character and envies their thoughts and personalities with just a chance in his infection and tone of voice. I cannot wait now to get stuck into End of Watch!

    "Ooh ooh ooh."

    Usually when a book impresses me this much on audible I wonder if the narrator makes the story stronger. With King, I need not wonder. He picks the best because he is the best.

    Now. You want to know what I thought right? Well. You know that annoying friend that goes.....oh oh oh and then, and I do not want to spoil the story but...well with this book that is me. I felt for our foul evil reader cause I get it. I hopefully will never go this far but........

    Lol. Read it. If your a fan I can tell you the King is back in full form if not a fan? Well then, why are you wasting your time reading a review that only goes.....go read it. Go read it now!

    "Mr Mercedes"
    Would you listen to Finders Keepers again? Why?

    I'd want to listen to this and Mr Mercedes again prior to the follow up being released. It's been a refreshing change to read a King novel without the fantasy element.


    What other book might you compare Finders Keepers to, and why?

    Obviously it's difficult not to compare this book to Mr Mercedes. I loved the twists and turns that befall the protagonist which is different to the structured planning of the villain of Mr Mercedes. The books have developed that universe well and King lets us know we're not in his horror universe in compelling ways.


    What about Will Patton’s performance did you like?

    It's cliched but he really brings the characters to life. Hodges sounds like the gritty 40s PI and Holly is the nervous intellect.


    Any additional comments?

    I like King's fantastical story writing in his other books but I've enjoyed the fact that this trilogy so far doesn't have that and it's obviously in a different universe from most of the rest of his books. I just hope he sticks to this grounded universe when he rounds out the trilogy in End of Watch, unfortunately it doesn't seem like he will.

    "Solid King Crime"

    A pretty good King novel with all the key ingredients of repulsive villain, flawed hero and good vanquishing evil. But a few plot holes and guessable twists. But I listened straight after Bag of Bones which was amazing, so maybe I'm just on a comedown!

    "Not one of King's best"

    I bought this story on audiobook so I could listen to it on my way to and from work. The quality of narration is excellent and on a par with other Stephen King audiobooks I’ve listened to.

    The story is cleverly written to link into the previous novel in the series being a direct sequel. If you hadn’t read the previous book you wouldn’t be at a huge disadvantage reading this one as King fills in the gaps and brings you quickly up to speed.

    The story starts in the past and flicks between past and present as it sets the scene for the story and introduces the characters. Gradually the plot picks up steam and the pace starts to increase, and it isn’t until more than half way through the book that the link to the previous book in the series becomes clear and the characters meet.

    I enjoyed this book but there isn’t a lot to it compared to some of King’s other novels and once again the ending is a bit of an anti-climax. I’d still recommend this book to others but I hope that King’s next book has a little more of the supernatural in and a better ending 🙂

    An enjoyable story with enough twists and turns to keep you engaged. The characters are fully written so you care about what happens to them and want to find out what happens next.
    Finishes with what's a typical Stephen King theme just enough to tell you that there is a corner to be turned.
