This exciting novel, written months before Carrie under King's Richard Bachman pseudonym, has just been discovered and is being published for the first time ever.Clay Blaisdell is one big mother, but his capers were just small-time until he met George Rackley. George introduced him to a hundred cons and one big idea: kidnapping the child of rich parents.The Gerards are filthy rich, and the last twig on the family tree could be worth millions. There's only one problem: by the time the deal goes down, the brains of the partnership is dead. Or is he? Now Blaze is running into the teeth of a howling storm, and the cops are closing in. He's got a baby as a hostage, and the Crime of the Century just turned into a race against time in the white hell of the Maine woods.More
"Blaze feels like an essential missing piece in [Stephen] King's oeuvre, bridging the gap between [his] occasionally derivative, but always compelling, Bachman novels and the shocking power of Carrie." (Independent on Sunday)

I loved Blaze himself, despite being a criminal he was at heart a good man and a victim of circumstances
Don't really want to say, it would spoil the book!
The ones with Joe
I loved this book. Stephen King at his best, despite what his introduction said. I thoroughly enjoyed this one.
