"The spectacular finale to the New York Times bestselling trilogy that began with Mr. Mercedes (winner of the Edgar Award) and Finders Keepers--In End of Watch, the diabolical "Mercedes Killer" drives his enemies to suicide, and if Bill Hodges and Holly Gibney don't figure out a way to stop him, they'll be victims themselves. In Room 217 of the Lakes Region Traumatic Brain Injury Clinic, something has awakened. Something evil. Brady Hartsfield, perpetrator of the Mercedes Massacre, where eight people were killed and many more were badly injured, has been in the clinic for five years, in a vegetative state. According to his doctors, anything approaching a complete recovery is unlikely. 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--the woman who delivered the blow to Hartsfield's head that put him on the brain injury ward. When Bill and Holly are called to a suicide scene with ties to the Mercedes Massacre, they find themselves pulled into their most dangerous case yet, one that will put their lives at risk, as well as those of Bill's heroic young friend Jerome Robinson and his teenage sister, Barbara. Brady Hartsfield is back, and planning revenge not just on Hodges and his friends, but on an entire city. 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 heart-pounding, supernatural suspense that has been his bestselling trademark. The result is an unnerving look at human vulnerability and chilling suspense. No one does it better than King"-- "A fabulously suspenseful closing volume--Brady Hartsfield, the Mercedes killer Stephen King introduced in his Edgar award winning first book in the trilogy, returns to diabolically drive his victims to suicide in this last, masterful installment starring the ever more winning Bill Hodges and Holly Gibney"--… (more)

Enjoyed the book and enjoyed the entire series. End of Watch ending was not what my mind had imagined it to be. Hollyberry turned out to be my favorite character. ( )

I've not really been a fan of Bill Hodges and so I'm quite pleased this is the final in the series (I'm assuming).

The characters are all too goody-two shoes for my tastes and the story did not contain any of the terror or suspense which I've come to expect from this author.

I yearn for Stephen King's next book that matches the thrill of 22.11.63 or Pet Semetary. ( )

This was the third part of the Bill Hodges Trilogy and this time too the story captivated me from beginning to end.
Hodges, who has developed pancreatic cancer, discovers that his nemesis Brady has somehow managed to get active again. This is all the more astonishing since he lies completely paralyzed and helpless in a clinic. How does this person manage to sneak into so many heads and manipulate these 'hosts' in his favor?
Hodges and Holly are investigating a suicide. Soon they have to discover that this is not the only one, but that this is part of a cluster of suicides. When Barbara almost got under a car, Hodges and his team begin to reconstruct the connections. Can they neutralize Brady forever this time?
It was very exciting and I suffered with Hodges and his team. ( )

Ahhhhh..... what a journey. Thrilling and satisfying ending to the series.

4.5 stars... Got a little redundant on Suicide Prince. ( )

Holly Gibney, will we ever see you (or hear from you) again? ( )

Get me a gun
Go back into my room
I'm gonna get me a gun
One with a barrel or two
You know I'm better off dead than
Singing these suicide blues.
