局外人 | The Outsider by Stephen King

    局外人 | The Outsider by Stephen King

    From #1 New York Times bestseller Stephen King, whose brand has never been stronger, comes one of his most propulsive and unsettling stories ever. An eleven-year-old boy is found in a town park, hideously assaulted and murdered. The fingerprints (and later DNA) are unmistakably those of the town’s most popular baseball coach, Terry Maitland, a man of impeccable reputation, with a wife and two daughters. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland coached, orders an immediate and public arrest. Maitland is taken to jail, his claim to innocence scorned. Maitland has a foolproof alibi, with footage to prove that he was in another city when the crime was committed.

    But that doesn't save him either. King constructs a propulsive plot, and a race against time to uncover the identity of a terrifying and diabolical killer who has left victims—and “perpetrators”—across the country, and who is on his way to his next horrific act. King’s psychological suspense is at its most riveting in this extraordinarily dramatic and eerie story. He is devastatingly vivid on the experience of being falsely blamed—the effect on the accused, the spouse, the children; the suspicion of friends, even the most loyal; the impossibility of ever being innocent again (if you are lucky enough to live). He is also masterful at showing us that supernatural monsters are startlingly like human beings who do monstrous things.

    十一岁的男孩被侵犯后惨遭杀害,尸体在一个镇公园里被发现。目击者和现场留下的指纹都清晰地指向了弗林特市最受欢迎的市民之一,特里•梅特兰。他是小联盟教练、英语老师、丈夫,以及两个女孩的父亲。拉尔夫•安德森警探下令迅速公开逮捕他。梅特兰有不在场证明,但安德森和地方检察官很快就添加了DNA证据,这个案子似乎铁证如山。

    随着调查的扩大,骇人听闻的答案出现,强烈的紧张感和几乎令人无法忍受的悬念,将故事推进高潮。特里•梅特兰看起来是个好人,但他到底有几幅面孔?当答案揭晓时,所有人都感到震惊。
