End of Watch by Stephen King Book Summary

Now an AT&T Audience Original Series

The fabulously suspenseful and "smashing" (The New York Times Book Review) final novel in the Bill Hodges trilogy from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers!

For nearly six years, in Room 217 of the Lakes Region Traumatic Brain Injury Clinic, Brady Hartsfield has been in a persistent vegetative state. A complete recovery seems unlikely for the insane perpetrator of the “Mercedes Massacre,” in which eight people were killed and many more maimed for life. But behind the vacant stare, Brady is very much awake and aware, having been pumped full of experimental drugs...scheming, biding his time as he trains himself to take full advantage of the deadly new powers that allow him to wreak unimaginable havoc without ever leaving his hospital room. Brady Hartsfield is about to embark on a new reign of terror against thousands of innocents, hell-bent on taking revenge against anyone who crossed his path—with retired police detective Bill Hodges at the very top of that long list....

A perfect ending to the series. I have been reading Stephen King for 30 years and this series was excellent. Looking forward to his next book.

Another one for the highlight reel. I’m the first to admit that I’m not much of a critic. It doesn’t take much to entertain me. Or maybe I’ve been spoiled by over 30 years of excellence from Sai King. The “Bill Hodges Trilogy” is another sample of that excellence. If you’re a fan of Stephen King, you’ll be a fan of this book. Simple as that.

R Sulcer. Long time fan of THE KING. Good ending to a great series.

So so for the most part.. Got pretty bogged down n the middle although it started fast and ended strong. Mr. Mercedes was the best of the trilogy, End of Watch third place by far.

LOVED IT!!. LOVED IT!! Wish it was longer.

A beautiful representation. I first heard of Bill Hodges when my dad and I watched the Mr. Mercedes series on tv. It was our thing for so long, until the show ended. So when I got back into reading this year, particularly my favorite author, I knew I wanted to read the base trilogy. I lost my dad to cancer last year, and losing the character my dad and I loved together to cancer at the end of a perfectly-wrapped story felt like a full circle moment. This may take the reign as my favorite book by King. I loved it so much.

Enjoyable Read. I did not read the prequals to the end of this trilogy. I still found this book very enjoyable and very worthy of 4 stars. I think having read the trilogy in order I would have given this book 5 stars. Great Read.

Dey Hodges series. Mr King... No pun intended but you are my biggest fan! I'm an avid reader n always look for your book first. We r the same age I think as many of your saying r from my days growin up! Really enjoy your work/ please don't stop.

Weakest of the Series. Still a good read but felt it was too slow to pick up steam. Where Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers were firmly rooted in reality (a refreshing change for King), End of Watch slid into fantasy territory which for me, was a disappointing way to see this particular series end. I spent most of my time reading just trying to wrap my head around the events in the story. The way it ends we don't even truly know if it's "over". Now that apparently "magic" is involved. A great build up in the final act that had, to me anyway, a disappointing climax. I liked some of the ideas presented but wish I could have heard more from the other side. More closure on the situation would have been nice too.

Awesome!!. Awesome book!

Wonderful. A thoughtful and entertaining ending to King’s trilogy. A fantastic summer read or for any season.

The Bill Hodges's trilogy. Everything I always expect an get from Stephen King. Read all 3 books twice. Never wanted them to end. Thank you, Mr. King!

The Last Watch. Great character development, which is one of Stephen kings best talents. I read the whole series and have just one regret. I have finished them.

End of Watch. Is this really the end of three great books?

End of Watch. All three books were wonderful to read. I read them at different time in my life, but when the End of Watch came out I had to read the other two before I could read the last one to keep track of the characters in all of the books. Really sad to see Hodges go but it seems like Holly kicks it up a notch. Thank you Mr. King for the wonderful stories.

Sorry it ended. OMG never read a S. King book before let alone a trilogy. I adore the way he grows the characters. I miss them already. Coolest part he used my name . I am a Swain.

Great conclusion to a great series.. The "King" does it again.

WHOA. What a whirlwind! Never has a book made me break out in cold sweats and cry at the same time. This was a fantastic yet somber way to end a trilogy.

Excellent. I couldn't put it down

Sorry it had to end. I just finished End of watch. First I couldn't put it down, then I was so sad to have it end! I have been a Stephen King fan forever and I love everything he writes!

Ccaero75. End of Watch was a five star read! Just as good as Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers. Mr King you knocked a home run again!

Amazing. The use of language, “the voice,” of the this master story teller teleported me into this story for hours. It was an amazing ride. A fitting end to a great trilogy.

Not as good as the first book. But still 5 star masterpiece. Not as good as the first book that started it all. But still a worthy read. 5 star without a doubt

Excellent read, from an awesome trilogy. Didn't want it to end.. Another great story for the constant reader. Stephen King doesn't disappoint and captures your attention to the very end. Cheers!

Loved it!. As always Kings characters feel like family, you care about them and can't wait to get back to the book to see what they are doing.

Good read!. Good book! Ending was a little rushed and abrupt though…but still a good read!

Love SK. I liked this series. Really enjoyed the stories and characters. Only 4 stars cause I'm a Dark Tower lover all the way and while this was enjoyable it wasn't as engrossing as that series.

Awesome !. Took me awhile to finally get around to this series ender but it was worth the wait. The first two were good but this one was awesome and more like what I expect from Stephen King. Continuing in the same vein as the previous books this was a real page turner for me. If you're a King fan you've got to read all three but especially this one !

Loved it. Just started reading on my phone and grateful that I stumbled across this series! Can’t wait to figure out what I will find next.

End of watch. Another great read from the king

End of Watch. I wanted to like this one so much. Mr Mercedes and Finders Keepers sucked me into a false world were I didn’t want to do anything but read them. However, end of watch is not good. Hartsfield was once an insane psychopath killer with a absolutely twisted head, and King turned him into a supernatural super villain. Hodges lost his nice personality, and Holly isn’t the same grownup little kid she once was. Mr Mercedes ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Finders Keepers ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ End of Watch ⭐️⭐️

Best of the 3. I had my doubts, I didn't quite think he could live up to the other two, but "Finders Keepers" is in its category of its own, as I read this book I feel some people that are down should read, no need to read this book to bring light to how they are feeling. If I could rate this book and give it 10 stars I would, but as of I can not I will settle for 5.. Thank you Stephen King.

Life imitates art. Nice and Pokemon crazy

Great end to this trilogy. I just finished End of Watch. Loved it! King has created three of his best characters in Bill Hodges, Holly Gibney and Brady Hartsfield. It was interesting to see the author weave his way out of a standard detective story and incorporate his own trademark horror twist into the story. I highly recommend the entire trilogy. It's definitely high quality throughout!

Not as good as the first two. It was a good read but a little to "out there" for me...(trying to avoid spoiler)

Unexpected Turn. I loved the first two books, and they were more realistic fiction. I wasn't expecting the hard turn towards fiction in this final book. It was a little unbelievable in my opinion, but I still enjoyed the read.

The best of the 3. No doubt in my mind. This story was the best of the trilogy and brought great closure to the drama. I wish I could read them all again, for the first time.

Love it!. Awesome series!

Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers, End of Watch. I've been reading Mr. King's work since "The Stand", "The Shining", "The Dead Zone" and I've never been disappointed. These three books are truly an integrated trilogy and should be read in the order of the title of this review. Mr. King has given enough background in each of the successive titles to not really need to read the first, but why would you want to miss it? I'm pretty busy with work and started reading "Mr. Mercedes" in the hammock on weekends last summer and just finished up "End of Watch" last weekend on the couch while it looked like snow outside. From beginning to end, a great trilogy.

Great Triology. Loved this series. So sad to reach the end.

Mr. Mercedes - Bill Hodges Series. I just finished End of Watch, the last of this 3 book series. King never fails to intrigue and captivate my imagination. What I most appreciate about his talent however is that within the construct of developing a great horror/mystery, he manages to use such beautifully vivid, richly unique language to bond you to his characters. Love this author - never gets stale or repetitive, no matter how many great stories he writes!

End of watch. I was afraid I wasn’t going to like this. From a suspense, catch the killer book, to the killer has supernatural powers now...but I did.

It was okay.. This book didn’t have the same feel as the first two in the series, but maybe it wasn’t suppose to have the same feel. I enjoyed the action and the conclusion to the trilogy.

Last watch. Great book

Wow! What a ride.. I really enjoyed all 3books. My only disappointment as it's always been since reading Kings' books is poor characterization of African-Americans. They always seem stuck in the 60-70s state of Mind or acting. It's very revealing. You don't have an inkling of the contemporary black man at all. I really thought Jerome was gonna prove me wrong in this novel, but...

Excellent way to wrap up a series. Excellent way to wrap up a series I love the misfit group of good guys. When I first started this trilogy, I had no idea that many of the these turns were coming. End of Watch is sort of a horror and thriller, but it really brought out the feelings of warmth and friendship in me also. Great writing.

Great read. Loved it

Not as good as the first two.... I got 3/4 of the way through and didn't pick it up again for a few months. This third book was just ok- after awhile it all sounds the same... I'm really missing the "scary" books he used to write

Great Trilogy & this is the best one of the three. I thought it was slow at first, but it soon sped up like crazy. I loved it!

End of Watch. I loved this series so much. I already know it's going to be one of those series that will be reread-able for years to come.

End of watch. I haven't read many Stephen king novels for years as I don't have the time for the laborious detail they went in to, my last one was IT. But I tried this series as they were short and not the normal horror/fantasy genre that he does and liked the first two of the trilogy. But so disappointed that the third descended in to fantasy, how silly. Wish he could have finished the series off realistically.

End of Watch. This book and the 2 earlier books in this trilogy were the best books I have ever read. I absolutely love love the characters (the good ones, not the evil ones). Now maybe I can get some sleep at night! Thank you Stephen King

Hodges great character. Hodges story comes to a great ending...it was a great read from the first book to the last.

End of Watch. Great finish to the Mr Mercedes trilogy. Couldn't put it down. Thank SK!
