Finders Keepers by Stephen King
The second book in King’s trilogy, Finders Keepers picks up a few years after the Mercedes killer’s murder spree. Young Peter Saubers, whose father was disabled in one of the killer’s rampages, finds an old trunk full of money and notebooks. His father’s out of work, still recovering from his injuries while his mother’s work hours have been reduced. Then, like manna from heaven, an anonymous envelope of money arrives in the mail every month for several years, offering just enough financial breathing room for the family to inch their way out of debt. Peter’s fascination with the contents of the notebooks and his growing understanding of the notebooks’ importance lead him into a world of obsession where some people will do anything to get their hands on them. Meanwhile, odd things happen at the nursing home where Brady Hartsfield, the Mercedes killer, resides.
Finders Keepers’ suspenseful handling of how obsession affects people makes for a satisfying read.
