A Face in the Crowd, by Stephen King & Stewart O’Nan (Hodder & Stoughton, 2012)

A widower fancies that he can see faces from his past in televised baseball games. Perhaps for King completists, this is nevertheless a melancholy and effective stand-alone story that doesn’t require a knowledge/love of baseball for it to work; we’ve all got regrets, after all.

My own books are here, if that’s your thing. Newest is noir thriller East of England.
