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.

"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.
I did stick to this as hard and for as long as I could, about two thirds. I know it's not supposed to be one of Steven King's best, but it's really awful. I can't believe he let it be published, it is an embarrassment to him. The Characters are painful, and I just couldn't get in to it.
