End of Watch

We’re thrilled to reveal our cover for Stephen King’s new novel End of Watch. As a special treat, we’ve also created a chilling animated version.




End of Watch is a compelling and chilling suspense novel which sees retired detective Bill Hodges back on the trail of his nemesis Brady Hartsfield, the criminal the press called The Mercedes Killer.

Both a stand-alone novel and the final episode in the Mr Mercedes trilogy, End of Watch is a tense read which takes the series into a powerful new dimension.

    Like little sharks they come, circling. I find it almost hypnotizing.

    Amazingly consistent great writing (movies too) is so rare I’ve grown and grown up with Stephen King and never been let down. I’m so grateful for the support of your work all these years & you’re getting better than I ever dreamed of, nightmares included. Great cover, I need a larger bookshelf as the 1 filled with your books exclusively is now full of everything from the hardcover books I collect and my husband (turned fan) Steve (go figure) has given me for over 20 yrs. & well thumbed lovingly read Dark Tower/Gunslinger + the many other series. At times these were all I had that lasted and never disappoint me or disappeared on me, lmao! Now I’m happy to share with my kids and can’t wait for your new release. Thanks for the long, strange, twisted trips you take me on. I’m your biggest fan. . .!

    Can’t wait for the book to be released. Have read Mr. Mercedes and I loved it. Looking forward to reading Finders Keepers before next book comes out. Animation is awesome!

  23. S.Strong says:

    Excited to read the 3rd book of this fantastic series..A little sad that it will be the last one though..Superb animation..

  24. Love that cover. I am a constant reader starting with “Carrie”. Thank you for sharing your talent.
