Stephen King fans discovered this week that the writer’s new novel is called Billy Summers and it will be published by Scriber on August 3.
Billy Summers concerns a killer for hire and the best in the business. But he’ll do the job only if the target is a truly bad guy. And now Billy wants out. But first, there is one last hit. Billy is among the best snipers in the world, a decorated Iraq war vet, a Houdini when it comes to vanishing after the job is done. So what could possibly go wrong?
How about everything.
Per the book’s publisher Scriber, Billy Summers is “part war story, part love letter to small town America and the people who live there, and it features one of the most compelling and surprising duos in King fiction, who set out to avenge the crimes of an extraordinarily evil man. It’s about love, luck, fate, and a complex hero with one last shot at redemption.”
You won’t put this story down, and you won’t forget Billy.
