An unspeakable crime. A confounding investigation. At a time when the King brand has never been stronger, he has delivered one of his most unsettling and compulsively readable stories.An eleven-year-old boy’s violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City’s most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad. As the investigation expands and horrifying answers begin to emerge, King’s propulsive story kicks into high gear, generating strong tension and almost unbearable suspense. Terry Maitland seems like a nice guy, but is he wearing another face? When the answer comes, it will shock you as only Stephen King can.

3.0 "Outsider" Stephen King
Sporo się naczekałem na nowego Kinga. Nie czytałem serii "Pan Mercedes" bo jakoś nie pasował mi ten autor w powieści detektywistycznej. Dlatego też z tym większym utęsknieniem czekałem na najnowszą powieść mojego ulubionego autora. Teraz świeżo po lekturze czas na kilka zdań podsumowania. W Flint ...

3.0 Outsider
Książka podzielona jest na 12 zatytułowanych części. Podczas jej lektury czytelnik zostaje wciągnięty w historię pewnego zabójstwa, a mordercę poznaje już w pierwszych rozdziałach. Ale czy aby na pewno? Stephen King w swojej powieści wprowadza czytelnika w ciekawą opowieść, w której z pozoru wszystk...

4.0 Whodunit: Horror edition
The Outsider is the newest notch in the belt of one of the most prolific writers of supernatural horror, Stephen King. It's been a good long while since I've sunk my teeth into a King novel but when I read the premise (and saw the ultra rad cover) I knew that it was time to take a bite. (That metaph...
