The Outside by Stephen King- Book Review

This is my first Stephen King read and whoa! I was completely hooked from page one. This was definitely a page turner and I couldn’t put this book down. It had me guess the whole way through and I loved the twist int he story. I also really loved the characters especially Holly. This book had my emotions going in every which way. I finished this book a few days ago and I still can’t stop thinking about it. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

Synopsis:

An unspeakable crime. A confounding investigation. At a time when the King brand has never been stronger, he has delivered one of his most unsettling and compulsively listenable stories. 

An 11-year-old boy’s violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City’s most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad. 

As the investigation expands and horrifying answers begin to emerge, King’s propulsive story kicks into high gear, generating strong tension and almost unbearable suspense. Terry Maitland seems like a nice guy, but is he wearing another face?
