Here is the book description:
It is a riveting cat-and-mouse
suspense thriller about a retired cop and a couple of unlikely allies
who race against time to stop a lone killer intent on blowing up
Retired homicide detective Bill Hodges is
haunted by the few cases he left open, and by one in particular: in the
pre-dawn hours, hundreds of desperate unemployed people were lined up
for a spot at a job fair in a distressed Midwestern city. Without
warning, a lone driver ploughed through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes.
Eight people were killed, fifteen wounded. The killer escaped.
later, on the other side of the city, Bill Hodges gets a letter in the
mail, from a man claiming to be the perpetrator. He taunts Hodges with
the notion that he will strike again. Hodges wakes up from his depressed
and vacant retirement, hell-bent on preventing that from happening.
Brady Hartfield lives with his alcoholic mother in the house where he
was born. And he is indeed preparing to kill again.
Hodges, with a
couple of misfit friends, must apprehend the killer in this high-stakes
race against time. Because Brady's next mission, if it succeeds, will
kill or maim hundreds, even thousands. Mr Mercedes is
a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight
into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and
