When an eleven-year-old boy is found murdered in a town park, reliable eyewitnesses undeniably point to the town's popular Little League coach, Terry Maitland, as the culprit. DNA evidence and fingerprints confirm the crime was committed by this well-loved family man.Horrified by the brutal killing, Detective Ralph Anderson, whose own son was once coached by Maitland, orders the suspect to be arrested in a public spectacle. But Maitland has an alibi. And further research confirms he was indeed out of town that day.As Anderson and the District Attorney trace the clues, the investigation expands from Ohio to Texas. And as horrifying answers begin to emerge, so King's propulsive story of almost unbearable suspense kicks into high gear.Terry Maitland seems like a nice guy but there is one rock-hard fact, as unassailable as gravity: a man cannot be in two places at the same time.

The Outsider Reviews
I LOVE THIS DUDE SO FUCKING MUCH.
King has done it again! The last time I was this enthralled with one of his books was Finders Keepers. While I do read a lot, it is not often I find a book that I don't want to put down at all. In fact, the biggest selling point is that I am in no way, shape or form a morning person. Dragging myself out of bed is the greatest challenge of my day. But, I woke up early, without a alarm, when I had about 100 pages to go because I was so into it I couldn't stop thinking about it and wanted to finish ...more
*no spoiler review* However, if you don't want to know anything about this book, please save this review for later.
I have been waiting for a book like this from King for a long, long time. I'd say I've wanted a book like this since 11/22/63-- I loved that book but it wasn't horror.

This was my first experience reading a King novel as soon as it comes out. I read Sleeping Beauties and Gwendy’s Button Box when they were published, but each of ...more
A man with a ruint face and tattoos crawling up his arms - now you see him, now you don't. A dirty white van, a flapping yellow bra strap, and frightening flashbacks of a rotten cantaloupe from childhood. An open and shut case that most assuredly isn't. Skin and bones, a skeleton screams. Take heed of a man with a sack; trust me, it ain't Santa.

“Doesn’t look like a monster, does he?”
“They rarely do.”
First things first: I don’t know if I simply lucked out or if the library is officially terrified of me at this point and placed me first on the waiting list, but whatever the case I am truly grateful to have received this on release day. On the flip side, since I was fortunate enough to be one of the first to get my grubby paws on The Outsider, there aren’t ...more
