"You're a firestarter honey.... just one big zippo lighter." A year ago, he was an upstanding instructor of English at Harrison State College. Now Andy is on the run with his daughter, a pigtailed girl named Charlie. A girl with an unimaginably terrifying gift. A gift which could be useful to corrupt authorities. Soon Charlie will be caught up in the menace of a fateful drug experiment and a sinister government ploy....
Let the listener beware: Firestarter is Stephen King at his most mesmerising.... and menacing.

"One of the few horror writers who can truly make the flesh creep." (Sunday Express)
Really enjoyable read. It's a typical SK thing but no dragging of plot and kid is likeable (2 things which sometimes let him down). love the concept and the ideas running through the book, good twists and turns, would love a sequel!
A young girl and her father are on the run from the mysterious "Shop", a secret government agency. After participating in a college experiment, the dad has gained special powers, which appear tenfold in the daughter, who can will things to combust.
