Holly by Stephen King
A gripping crime novel that is also very close to the horror aesthetic King is known for.
Holly Gibney, the dogged private detective introduced in Stephen King’s 2014 novel Mr. Mercedes, is back in Holly, King’s latest novel. This time, Holly is investigating the disappearance of a young girl in a Midwest town. As she delves deeper into the case, she discovers other unsolved disappearances in the same area, leading her to suspect that a serial killer is at large.

Holly’s investigation leads her to a seemingly harmless elderly couple, who are harboring a dark secret in the basement of their home. The couple, who are devoted to each other and semi-retired lifelong academics, may be connected to the disappearances. Holly must use all her formidable talents to outthink and outmaneuver the shockingly twisted professors.
“A former cop turned private detective, investigates the disappearance of a young woman in a story that is both suspenseful and disturbing.”
The Book Guide® Editor
Holly is a dark and lyrical thriller set during the pandemic. King’s writing is as sharp and evocative as ever, drawing readers into the twisted minds of the killers and the determined detective who is hot on their trail.
