Product description

Review

Praise for The Outsider:

"A juicy tale that plays at the forefront of our current phobias... [The Outsider] will remind readers of King's early novel It."

-- Kirkus Reviews

"There's plenty of shadowy, wormy supernatural goings-on in Stephen King's new novel The Outsider. Yet the most unsettling stuff -- that which will leave you uncomfortable when you sit and devour this first-rate read -- probes the monstrous side of human nature."

--Brian Truitt, USA Today

"An It for the Trump era...remarkable and deeply pleasurable."

--Ryan Vlastelica, The AV Club

"King is arguably as much an American icon as the '68 Fastback or a classic red and white Plymouth Fury. All of these glories are on full display in his latest mystery-horror hybrid...you're in for one hell of a ride."

--Karin Slaughter, The Washington Post

"The Outsider is yet another outstanding offering from Stephen King, a darkly engaging ride of a read that demonstrates once again that despite a decades-spanning career, he's still performing at the height of his powers."

--The Maine Edge

"[A] fascinating mystery that challenges fans of detective yarns to be on top of their game."

--The Minneapolis Star Tribune

"How could a man so beloved and respected, a man the whole community has trusted with their children, commit such an unthinkable crime? It can't be true. It must be true. That's the situation Stephen King sets up with blazing intensity in the first chapter of his new novel ...The Outsider is proof King isn't losing his touch: It's a first-rate example of his signature technique of combining solidly realistic writing and believable characters with disturbingly creepy horror...a horrifying ride that challenges its characters not to succumb to their own darkness."

--Colette Bancroft, The Tampa Bay Tribune

"What begins as a manhunt for an unlikely doppelgänger takes an uncanny turn into the supernatural. King's skillful use of criminal forensics helps to ground his tale in a believable clinical reality where the horrors stand out in sharp relief."

--Publishers Weekly

"Absolutely riveting. . . another shockingly dark book--perfect for longtime fans, of whom there are, well, zillions."

--Booklist

"Do yourself a favor and read the book."

--Associated Press
