What would you do if you had to solve a murder where your number one suspect absolutely couldn't have done it, yet all evidence proves their undeniable guilt? Can a good man be at once place while his evil doppelganger be in another?
These questions are at the heart of The Outsider, Stephen King's chilling 2018 novel where a frustrated detective discovers that there's more to his recent arrest of a child murderer than originally appears. Facts both prove and disprove the man's guilt and, with the help of a wary private investigator with experience in the paranormal, the detective must find the monster at the heart of the story.
Stephen King's books have been made into many successful films and television series, and The Outsider has been made into an HBO miniseries that premieres on January 12th. King himself sings praises for the adaption, and you can check out the trailer below.
