An exciting Stephen King novel - written months before CARRIE under his Bachman pseudonym - has just been discovered and will be published for the first time ever. A heartstopping thriller reminiscent of OF MICE AND MEN with the power of a noir fable.
Clay Blaisdell is one big mother, but his capers are strictly small-time until his mentor introduces him to the one big score that every small-timer dreams of: kidnap. But now the brains of the operation has died - or has he? - and Blaze is alone with a baby as hostage. The Crime of the Century just turned into a race against time in the white hell of the Maine woods.

Storytelling - the ability to make the listener or the reader need to know, demand to know, what happens next - is a gift. Stephen King, like Charles Dickens before him, has this gift in spades * The Times on CELL * 'Thrilling, genuinely terrifying, beautifully textured and full of wonderful invention' * Daily Mail on LISEY'S STORY * 'A consummate and compassionate novel - one of King's very best' * Guardian on LISEY'S STORY *
About Richard Bachman
In his 'lifetime', Richard Bachman published five novels. A sixth, THE REGULATORS, was published after he died of pseudonym cancer (a relatively painless way to go) in 1985. He developed a cult following both before and after his death. Two of his novels (THINNER and THE RUNNING MAN) were made into motion pictures. This novel--both brutal and sensitive--is his final legacy. The last of the Bachman novels, written in 1973 and published for the first time. Stephen King's 'dark half' may have saved the best for last.
