I Can't Wait for... Billy Summers by Stephen King

Thriller Books Coming Soon!

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about and have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released, but not necessarily. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, which was originally hosted at Breaking the Spine. 

My pick for this week is about a good guy in a bad job who sets out to avenge the crimes of an extraordinarily evil man...


Title: Billy Summers
Author: Stephen King
Publisher: Scribner
Publication Date: August 3rd, 2021
Genres: Thriller

From legendary storyteller and #1 bestseller Stephen King, whose “restless imagination is a power that cannot be contained” (The New York Times Book Review), comes a thrilling new novel about a good guy in a bad job.

Billy Summers is a man in a room with a gun. He’s a killer for hire and the best in the business. But he’ll do the job only if the target is a truly bad guy. And now Billy wants out. But first there is one last hit. Billy is among the best snipers in the world, a decorated Iraq war vet, a Houdini when it comes to vanishing after the job is done. So what could possibly go wrong?

How about everything.

This spectacular can’t-put-it-down novel is part war story, part love letter to small town America and the people who live there, and it features one of the most compelling and surprising duos in King fiction, who set out to avenge the crimes of an extraordinarily evil man. It’s about love, luck, fate, and a complex hero with one last shot at redemption.

You won’t put this story down, and you won’t forget Billy.


  1. I'm excited for this too. I need to catch up with a bunch of his recent books, and this is on the list for sure😁

  2. King's books are hit and miss for me and so I'm very picky about which books of his I will read. This one sounds like one I would like. I hope you enjoy this one when you read it!

  3. Man! It's been awhile since I last read a Stephen King book! I need to read his books again! Great pick!

    Here’s my WoW!
