A few must reads: Mr. Mercedes, Narrows Gate, Cop Town, Bomb Proof, Wayfaring Stranger, The Son (Nesbo), Dept Q series...
I have to like most the main characters in a book. There's no way not to love Mulligan and his cast of cronies at the Providence paper he works for. The narration is brilliant. It's just a really fun book and series.
I think it's fair to say this is a quickie by King standards. It's a very good one. Like most all of his work the characters seem more like old friends, people you know and like and hope the best for.
It's a murder mystery set in an aging carnival type theme park in 1973 North Carolina. There actually is one here called South of the Border. Google it for a laugh. There's a very small supernatural element which has little to do with the story or it's outcome. In truth it would be a great thriller without any supernatural occurrences.
Just sit back and let reader Michael Kelly take you back to 1973. You won't regret it for a moment.
