Cover and synopsis for Stephen King's Finders Keepers!

Publishing house Simon and Schuster has released the plot synopsis and book cover for Stephen King's new novel, FINDERS KEEPERS, which is a follow-up to last year's MR. MERCEDES. (These books are part of a trilogy, it has been revealed.)The book once again has King exploring the tumultuous waters of what it means to be a writer, something he's done rather successfully in the past.

“Wake up, genius.” So begins King’s instantly riveting story about a vengeful reader. The genius is John Rothstein, an iconic author who created a famous character, Jimmy Gold, but who hasn’t published a book for decades. Morris Bellamy is livid, not just because Rothstein has stopped providing books, but because the nonconformist Jimmy Gold has sold out for a career in advertising. Morris kills Rothstein and empties his safe of cash, yes, but the real treasure is a trove of notebooks containing at least one more Gold novel.

Morris hides the money and the notebooks, and then he is locked away for another crime. Decades later, a boy named Pete Saubers finds the treasure, and now it is Pete and his family that Bill Hodges, Holly Gibney, and Jerome Robinson must rescue from the ever-more deranged and vengeful Morris when he’s released from prison after thirty-five years.

Not since Misery has King played with the notion of a reader whose obsession with a writer gets dangerous. Finders Keepers is spectacular, heart-pounding suspense, but it is also King writing about how literature shapes a life—for good, for bad, forever.

FINDERS KEEPERS will be released on June 2nd.
