Here are Amazon’s bestselling books for the past week.

The list has a lot of thrillers, as expected, but also Stephen King’s latest and a few surprises. It also shows the amazing staying power of the Handmaid’s Tale, which was at number two last week.

1.The Outsider by Stephen King

The Outsider Book cover

An eleven-year-old boy’s violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City’s most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.

As the investigation expands and horrifying answers begin to emerge, King’s propulsive story kicks into high gear, generating strong tension and almost unbearable suspense. Terry Maitland seems like a nice guy, but is he wearing another face? When the answer comes, it will shock you as only Stephen King can.

2. The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

The Handmaid's Tale Book Cover

The Handmaid’s Tale is fast becoming an uncomfortably prophetic book, and is most definitely a classic. The basis of the HULU series of the same name, which follows the book very closely right up to the last paragraph (spoken verbatim by Offred in the last minutes of the show).

One of those books you have to read.
