#1 New York Times Bestseller

From legendary storyteller Stephen King, whose “restless imagination is a power that cannot be contained” (The New York Times Book Review), comes a thrilling new novel about a good guy in a bad job.

Billy Summers is a man in a room with a gun. He’s a killer for hire and the best in the business. But he’ll do the job only if the target is a truly bad guy. And now Billy wants out. But first there is one last hit. Billy is among the best snipers in the world, a decorated Iraq war vet, a Houdini when it comes to vanishing after the job is done. So what could possibly go wrong?

How about everything.

This spectacular can’t-put-it-down novel is part war story, part love letter to small town America and the people who live there, and it features one of the most compelling and surprising duos in King fiction, who set out to avenge the crimes of an extraordinarily evil man. It’s about love, luck, fate, and a complex hero with one last shot at redemption.

You won’t put this story down, and you won’t forget Billy.

    This book was intense. Something completely different for Stephen King, but fantastic non the less.

  • John Rav

    Billy will now be one of my favorite fictional characters. King has done it again! What a great story with wonderful characters. The narrator did a beautiful job giving each character their own voice which made the listening experience a joy. For those who have read or listened Billy Summer” I’m sure you will agree “ Fu…Marge.”

  • Egle Z.

    Although I liked it overall, I thought the story was underdeveloped in places. I'm not a fan of the "criminal with a heart of gold" trope either. Entertaining, but not competing for the greatest work of the author.

  • Elizabeth E.

    Until some glaring unbelievable actions by Billy near the conclusion, this was mostly entertaining. I find the excessive detail that I love in an actual read vs listen gets tiresome. Overall I would recommend this one.

  • Desmond

    wow....I'm at a loss for words! Amazing book, only wished Billy taught her to be a sniper.

  • Anonymous

    Great book from start to finish.

  • Judith S.

    A co-worker recommended this book. I'm glad she did. It was refreshing change for Stephen King novels. The man is so talented.

  • Cori H.

    I have never read/heard a Stephen King novel before and the comments sound as if this story is unusual. I hope not, because I really loved it and thought I would try another one of his books. At first, I didn't think I would like the narrator because he tended to swallow some of his words, especially at the end of sentences. But after I got used to his voice, I thought he did a great job and had a good sense of who the character, Billy Summers, was.

    My god, was this guy trying to whisper the entire book?
