I actually read FINDERS KEEPERS (the 2nd book in the series) first, because I didn’t realize it was part of a series.
Reading MR. MERCEDES was a step back…in a way…lol.
As for the story…WOW!!!
I have fallen for Bill Hodges. He is an amazing character. He’s a retired cop; depressed and suicidal and obsessed over his last case–the one he couldn’t solve– the Mr. MERCEDES case. However, he’s smart as a whip, doggedly persistent and just plain fun!
Reading it out of order…didn’t hurt it–or me!
I loved this book!
