Stephen King

The Outsider | Hachette | Pages: 475 | Rs 699

A young boy is brutally raped and murdered. Eye-witnesses, fingerprints, DNA points towards the city’s football coach. But he has an ironclad alibi—he is in another town; he’s even on TV at the time of the crime. The premise is intriguing: how can one man be in two places at the same time? But when the king of creeps veers off to the supernatural from police procedural, the plot thins.

David Darling, Agnijo Banerjee
