Master storyteller Stephen King, whose “restless imagination is a power that cannot be contained” (The New York Times Book Review), presents an unforgettable and relentless #1 New York Times bestseller about a good guy in a bad job.

Chances are, if you’re a target of Billy Summers, two immutable truths apply: You’ll never even know what hit you, and you’re really getting what you deserve. He’s a killer for hire and the best in the business—but he’ll do the job only if the assignment is a truly bad person. But now, time is catching up with him, and Billy wants out. Before he can do that though, there’s one last hit, which promises a generous payday at the end of the line even as things don’t seem quite on the level here. Given that Billy is among the most talented snipers in the world, a decorated Iraq war vet, and a virtual Houdini when it comes to vanishing after the job is done, what could possibly go wrong? How about everything.

Part war story and part love letter to small-town America and the people who live there, this spectacular thriller of luck, fate, and love will grip readers with its electrifying narrative, as a complex antihero with one last shot at redemption must avenge the crimes of an extraordinarily evil man. You won’t ever forget this stunning novel from master storyteller Stephen King…and you will never forget Billy.


  • Magnificent.

    It’s been over 35 years since I started my SK journey from Pet Sematary and IT, through the Towers, and so many more to Billy Summers; it just gets better and better. Such a great book and so easy to read.
  • Such a great story with a really good climax.

    I preordered this book. When it came out , I procrastinated. Yes, I should have read it two years ago but I’m glad that I read it finished it this year. Billy Summers is such a great novel. It’s truly one of Stephen King’s best stories. Mind you I’ve read 17 since 2014. The first was Mr. Mercedes. Billy Summers is a hit man who decides to take on last job. That job is supposed to be easy but it’s anything but. Another character that I liked is a woman named Alice. She was brave and helpful. Also. Bucky was pretty cool. I can’t wait to read Holly. That’s coming pretty soon. I hope that Alice pops up again.

    The book moved at a good pace. Didn’t get slow or uninteresting at all, which is nice. Billy and Alice are good relatable characters that kept my attention on the book. I Really enjoyed this one!

  • Vigorously addictive read

    One of the most glorious reads I’ve taken from Stephen King. Hopefully If this ever gets picked up for an adaptation, that ‘they’ keep Bill Summers story as is.
  • A Good Read
