William Hodges watches more grubby reality shows, fails to enjoy his beer, and thinks, again, of shooting himself. The arrival of the mail distracts him. A letter, allegedly from the driver of the killer Mercedes, stuns him. The writer brags about killing eight and wounding many. He says that he got off sexually at he drove into the crowd. He wore a condom and used bleach to get rid of any DNA. He wore a hair net under a clown mask for the same reason. He knows Hodges is miserable and hopes the letter cheers him up. He gives Hodges a website where they can talk, including a username: kermitfrog19. Chapters 4-6 Hodges wonders if he should turn the letter over to his former partner, Pete Huntley. He believes the writer is the killer because he knows inside information about the condom and the bleach.

The same smiley face was glued onto the steering wheel of the Mercedes. Hodges calls Pete and makes a lunch date....

Screening Stephen King Book Excerpt:

Since the 1970s, the name Stephen King has been synonymous with horror. His vast number of books has spawned a similar number of feature films and TV shows, and together they offer a rich opportunity to consider how one writer’s work has been adapted over a long period within a single genre and across a variety of media—and what that can tell us about King, about adaptation, and about film and TV horror. Starting from the premise that King has transcended ideas of authorship to become his own literary, cinematic, and televisual brand, Screening Stephen King explores the impact and legacy of over forty years of King film and television adaptations. Simon Brown first examines the reasons for King’s literary success and then, starting with Brian De Palma’s Carrie, explores how King’s themes and style have been adapted for the big and small screens. He looks at mainstream multiplex horror adaptations from Cujo to Cell, low-budget DVD horror films such as The Mangler and Children of the Corn franchises, non-horror films, including Stand by Me and The Shawshank Redemption, and TV works from Salem’s Lot to Under the Dome. Through this discussion, Brown identifies what a Stephen King film or series is or has been, how these works have influenced film and TV horror, and what these influences reveal about the shifting preoccupations and industrial contexts of the post-1960s horror genre in film and TV.

Mr Mercedes Book Excerpt:

Mr. Mercedes van Stephen King is bekroond met ***** in Vrij Nederland Detective en Thrillergids. Drie van de meest onwaarschijnlijke en fantastische helden die Stephen King ooit heeft gecreëerd proberen een eenzame moordenaar, de Mercedes Killer, te stoppen die eropuit is om duizenden mensen op te blazen. Het gevolg is een bloedstollende race tegen de klok met vele levens op het spel. Op een ijskoude vroege ochtend staan honderden wanhopige werklozen in de rij voor een banenbeurs. Zonder waarschuwing racet een eenzame bestuurder in een gestolen Mercedes dwars door de menigte; acht mensen worden gedood, vijftien raken gewond. De moordenaar ontsnapt. Maanden later wordt politieagent Bill Hodges nog steeds achtervolgd door de onopgeloste misdaad. Wanneer hij een krankzinnige brief ontvangt van iemand die zichzelf de ‘Extra’ noemt en dreigt met nog een duivelse aanval, ontwaakt Hodges uit zijn depressieve en wezenloze pensionering, vastbesloten om een volgende tragedie te voorkomen. ‘Het vakkundig uitgewerkte kat-en-muisspel benadert het niveau van een Michael Connolly-thriller, met een finale waardoor het boek zicht moeilijk laat wegleggen.’ – **** in de Volkskrant ‘Een ongemeen spannend boek. King is topvorm. Dit is het woeste, noeste, authentieke schrijven.’ –De Twentsche Courant ‘Een heerlijk kat-en-muisspel.’ – Elsevier ‘King is uitstekend op dreef in Mr. Mercedes, en zet met Brady Hartsfield een van zijn meeste gestoorde creaties tot op heden neer.’ – **** in de Telegraaf
