Finders Keepers: A Novel - Stephen King

It's amazing that we've gotten this far into the book, and none of the main characters has actually encountered each other yet, and very little has actually happened that isn't background or history to the principal conflict, but the tension keeps ratcheting up and I've never lost interest or been bored by the story. I don't know how he does it.
