New Stephen King Novel ‘The Outsider’ Gets Unsettling Cover Art

On May 22, Scriber will release The Outsider, the prolific author’s latest novel.

When we recently told you about Stephen King’s upcoming novel The Outsider, we had the plot and release date but didn’t have any art to share. Thanks to EW, now we do!

The site revealed the book’s cover art today, featuring an upside down man (creature?) with bright red eyes. We can only assume this is the title character… and he’s creepy AF.

In the 576-page novel…

“An unspeakable crime. A confounding investigation. At a time when the King brand has never been stronger, he has delivered one of his most unsettling and compulsively readable stories.

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,” the book promises.
