I read this after reading binge reading a few of Stephen Kings books I had missed over the years. Namely Bag of Bones (great), The Duma Key (great), Needful Things (bit boring, books is about 100 pages too long).

Reading Mr Mercedes it seems that Stephen King has again planted himself into the book as the main protagonist, this time as Bill Hodges.
Was it worth the read? The answer is, not really.
It is a by the numbers detective story of a very tired sleepy Bill Hodges is chasing a creepy thinking maniac.
It is a drawn out story with an ending that can be seen a mile away.
It got boring in places too.
There are way better books by Mr King out there instead of this one.
