We only have some early details, but USA Today described this book as a suspense novel about a deranged terrorist with a bomb. King said he began it before the Boston Marathon bombing, but the events were “too creepily close for comfort.” It’s also been previously described as a detective novel involving a person who drove a car into a crowd of people and then taunted the Detective who handled the case after his retirement.

Even though Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King is being published by another publisher, we will be producing one of our popular custom-made slipcase for this title like we have for the last few Stephen King books!
The easiest way to add a slipcase to your purchase is by selecting the “Trade Hardcover Edition with Exclusive Slipcase!” option above — you’ll also save on shipping by ordering this way! (You can order just the slipcase by itself on the Mr. Mercedes custom slipcase product page.)
Don’t know what a slipcase is? That’s okay! You can see some sample images of other slipcases we’ve made below. We’re using the same high-quality materials we have used for our previous Stephen King cases, with one color hot foil stamping. The company who makes these for us is the best in the business and you won’t find a better way to protect your investment! (If you’re new to collecting, you can read more about slipcases on our Book FAQ page.)
We’re selling these special slipcases for just $24.95, making them an extremely affordable way to protect your book. These cases will be produced after the book is published because we need a real copy of the book to get the sizing just right and your book and slipcase will ship together to save you on shipping. We think our collectors will be very pleased with what we have in mind for these very special cases, so don’t wait to place your order!
