King will discuss “End of Watch” during special author event; 400
lucky attendees will receive pre-signed hardcover edition
DAYTON, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AnEveningwithStephenKing—Stephen King will discuss his newest novel “End
of Watch” during a special event on Thursday, June 9 at 6:30
p.m. “An Evening with Stephen King,” presented by Books &
Co., is set to take place at the historic Victoria
Theatre, located at 138 N. Main St.
“End of Watch” is the thrilling conclusion to King’s Bill Hodges
trilogy. Brady Hartsfield, perpetrator of the Mercedes Massacre (and
first introduced in “Mr. Mercedes”), has been in a traumatic brain
injury clinic for five years in a vegetative state. But behind the drool
and stare, Brady is awake, and in possession of deadly new powers that
allow him to wreak unimaginable havoc without ever leaving his hospital
room. Retired police detective Bill Hodges, the unlikely hero of “Mr.
Mercedes” and “Finders Keepers,” now runs an investigation agency with
his partner, Holly Gibney, who delivered the blow to Hartsfield’s head
that put him in the brain injury ward. When Bill and Holly are called to
a murder-suicide with ties to the Mercedes Massacre, they find
themselves pulled into their most dangerous case yet – one that will put
their lives and an entire city at risk. In “End of Watch,” Stephen King
brings the Hodges trilogy to a sublimely terrifying conclusion,
combining the detective fiction of “Mr. Mercedes” and “Finders Keepers”
with the supernatural suspense that is his trademark. The result is an
unnerving look at human vulnerability and up-all-night entertainment.

Victoria Theatre or online at my.ticketcenterstage.com.

special bonus, 400 lucky attendees will randomly receive a pre-signed

the unsigned new book along with the two previous books in the series,
