4.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Usual Stephen King Novel
By Love Life on August 3, 2021
This is not your usual Stephen King supernatural or horror novel. This is a stealth bound crime thriller that will tie you in to the characters and never let you go.

This book definitely needs trigger warnings about rape, child abuse and war because it isn't often what you see in a SK novel. While the triggers are not too detailed, these are very touchy to some.

Billy Summers, an ex-marine sniper is a killer for hire. He's a sort of robin hood because he only kills bad guys. He's on his last hit, but this time isn't like any other. This book is going to take you on a wild adventure that you weren't expecting. This is another amazing Stephen King thriller!

I was excited to read Billy Summers from the beginning to the end. Once I received it I found a comfortable chair and read for hours on end. The more I would read, the more I loved the book. The characters are well developed and engage a realness. There's alot of suspense as you get to the middle chapters.

Stephen King is such an amazing writer. I always find myself not being able to put down a SK novel until I'm done. Billy Summers is a character with a heart for money and humanity. He's not exactly a good guy, but he's certainly not a heartless human. Billy's story is well developed and shares a character that has had a hard childhood and post trauma from a career as a sniper in the military.

Everything from the relationships Billy has to the war stories he carries from Iraq, entangle you in this non-typical King fashion. Alice, a woman that Billy rescues from a horrible gang rape goes along with him in search for vengeance. He becomes entangled in Alice's World and the horrifying ordeal she went through. Billy now has someone he feels he needs to find justice for. Along the way he finds himself in a way he never knew.

I absolutely loved this book because of the characters Billy and Alice. I continued reading for days until I could know how Billy's last job turned out. The ending had some bittersweet turns and tied into the real message of this book. I give this book, Billy Summers a 4 out of 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grabs you by the throat
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on August 5, 2021
As a lifelong Stephen King devotee, it’s difficult not to have the preconceived notion that everything he writes is going to be astounding. But this was. I think it’s one of his best works. I know that those who aren’t as staunchly in awe of this work, think of his name as a horror writer. That may be true to a point, but isn’t there a lot of horror in the world right now?
This book does not go down the supernatural path, as do many of his earliest works, but in true King fashion, there is a nod to one of his most lauded books, involving a haunted hotel. The characters in this book are superbly crafted and you have strong feelings about every single one of them, even the bad guys, of which there are plenty.
The story is almost in three separate parts, but woven together to create an intricate tale of love, war, justice and vengeance. The protagonist is a complex killer carrying around a head full of demons, yet a Robin Hood, who champions those who have been wronged. As always, Mr. King manages to paint vivid pictures of life in quintessential small town America, and intermingles it with the harsh reality of how its bigger turbines are grinding all that away. It makes you think about what’s important in life with another profound King-ism ”God doesn’t have a plan - he throws pick-up sticks” As always with a much anticipated King book, once I opened Billy Summers, it never got closed till the last page.
