Mr Mercedes

A cat-and-mouse suspense thriller about a retired cop and two unlikely allies who race against time.

Retired cop Bill Hodges is haunted by the few cases he left open, and by one in particular: in the pre-dawn hours hundreds of unemployed people were lined up at a job fair . Without warning, a lone driver ploughed through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes. Eight people were killed, fifteen wounded. The killer escaped.
Months later Bill gets a taunting mail from a man claiming to be the perpetrator. Bill wakes up from his depressed retirement, hell-bent on hunting him down.
