Mr. Mercedes, the first book in this soon-to-be trilogy, was an entertaining read with good characters and an interesting, no-nonsense plot. It was a refreshing departure for King, and a pretty solid detective story. This novel, although it reprises many of the same characters, was somewhat less successful.

The book seemed a little coarser than its predecessor, with the gradual return of King's practiced horror tropes and a whisper of the supernatural. Events moved too slowly in the beginning, with too many pages of needless detail about Morrie and a seemingly interminable set-up for the story. I liked Morrie's literary pretensions, liked the somewhat mocking famous author/priceless notebooks story line. But otherwise Morrie was a caricature, a wanna-be criminal who behaved as one might expect. The good guys--Hodges and the rest--were fine, if a little less earnestly good and little more tired this time around, just going through the motions.

It was mildly disappointing, since I had hoped for more from Finders Keepers, but I'll still pick up the final book in the series just to see how things turn out.
