The violated body of an eleven-year-old boy is discovered in a city park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints clearly point to one of Flint City’s most popular citizens: Terry Maitland, minor league coach, English teacher, husband and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once worked out, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the DA soon have DNA evidence on the fingerprints and witnesses. Her case seems ironclad.
As the investigation expands and lurid details emerge, King’s story accelerates, building intense tension and an almost unbearable suspense. Terry Maitland really seems like a nice guy, but is there another side to him? When the answer comes, you’ll be blown away as only Stephen King can.

I’m not sure how Stephen King is taking this on. For more than 40 years he has managed to keep the hustle and bustle going, always keeping up with the times and writing so vividly and brilliantly that we as readers have the feeling of riding along with his always motley group of characters. .
The Outsider fits all of this once again as Detective Ralph Anderson sets out to solve a disgusting crime for which he has a suspect, athletic trainer Terry Maitland, in custody along with his fingerprints and DNA at the crime scene. like a long list of eyewitnesses placing Maitland at the crime scene. The only problem is that there is also evidence that Maitland was elsewhere at the time of the crime.
Stephen King then takes us on another of those journeys that only he can take as the story unfolds bit by bit before all said pieces are beautifully fitted together at the end.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Outsider and if I had one piece of advice for other potential readers of this book it would be to enjoy every last page and immerse yourself in the story at all times. Don’t rush anywhere.
I love writing as much as I love reading, and Stephen King is responsible for that. It’s been a while since I’ve read for fun so this was a great break to take control of Christmas.
General? The story was extremely funny. The plot kept me engaged, and there were many funny characters and a few unfortunate ones.
However, there were times when I had to stop and walk away. One of them came in the second or third paragraph. I understood King was trying to stage the scene, but the use of two black teenagers saying, “It’s five o’clock” was definitely a shoehorn. Nobody says so. Another example like this came from the uniquely Mexican character (who was definitely used for the sole purpose of giving us the lore that inspired King).
He said “that” at least five times, which is five times more than I’ve ever heard from my Mexican relatives. Again, nobody says that.
Then the infamous Willow Rainwater. She talks about putting on her deerskins and feathers and “silly dancing”. Just because you have an Indigenous character saying something… harsh doesn’t make it right. There was really no need for all those details, and it’s moments like this that show Stephen King’s age.
If he had gotten rid of the poor inclusion efforts (just put these people in the roles when it inevitably hits screen, or basically write these characters the same as his other main characters) and would be limited to the question of whether the police were involved with what she did, wrong or not, it would have worked more effectively as a current affairs/political opinion article.
Now for the story itself, the other reason I can only give this one a four out of five (and there are spoilers ahead): the build was so awesome, only the ending was flat. Granted, the endings are ridiculously difficult. Saying SK can’t write an ending is a tired trope, but this is just another pile of evidence against him.
To tell the truth, when they finally revealed that Ralph Anderson’s son (Derek) was the same age as the murdered boy who started it all, I thought that was the nail in the coffin. Anderson had been warned several times to stop digging, and I was confident he would return from his heroic adventure to find his son murdered just as he found the Peterson boy.
Unfortunately that didn’t happen.
Maybe SK was tired of writing depressing endings. Maybe he threw in the towel. It all happened too abruptly for me to say. Initially, I expected that there would be no monsters or supernatural elements. I was hoping that by the end, when we realize that this horror was just something tragic and real that happened, those doubts would be effectively dispelled.
