Holly

by Stephen King Year Published: 2023

I read my first Stephen King book probably before I should have. It was Carrie, and I read it in 6th grade. And have been hooked ever since.  Although known for horror, King writes in many genres. And Holly is one of his crime novels -- the first to focus on a popular secondary character who has appeared in several other novels.  Holly Gibney is a detective, and is working on a strange case involving several missing people. The reader knows who the killers are, and the tension of the book revolves around following Holly and hoping she solves the case before they strike again.
