Stephen King's new novel Finders Keepers, the second book in his Mr. Mercedes trilogy, will be published on June 2.

The book is about an obsessive reader, Morris Bellamy, who kills a reclusive author and then steals an unpublished novel from the man’s safe.

King’s official website describes the books as “a masterful, intensely suspenseful novel about a reader whose obsession with a reclusive writer goes far too far - a book about the power of storytelling, starring the same trio of unlikely and winning heroes Stephen introduced in Mr. Mercedes.”

Meanwhile, a vast swathe of the reading public await Harper Lee’s Go Set a Watchman, the "follow-up" to the multi-million selling To Kill a Mockingbird and arguably the most highly-anticipated literary sequel of all time.  

In the new story, Lee’s character Scout returns to the Alabama town of Maycomb to be with her father, Atticus, 20 years after the events depicted in To Kill a Mockingbird. 

Go Set a Watchman is published on July 14.
