Summary

A psychopathic female fugitive provokes a mother's vengeance in this terrifying thriller by the New York Times best-selling author of Gone South and Boy's Life.

Back in the 1960s, Mary Terrell shot and killed a man. A former member of the fanatical Storm Front Brigade - a splinter group of the notorious Weathermen - Terrell has stayed one step ahead of the FBI for decades. Living with numerous identities and menial jobs, Terrell's only constants in life have been LSD, psychotic delusions of motherhood, and murderous rage.

The '60s are long gone, but Mary is still out there. Now, provoked by a message she reads in Rolling Stone, she's convinced that the surviving leader of her old band of radicals wants to build a life with her. So one night, Mary sneaks into the maternity ward of an Atlanta hospital.

Laura Clayborne has a successful career and now a newborn baby. She's the type of person who is sensitive to suffering and injustice. But the kidnapping of her infant son has brought out a white-hot fury. She's not going to sit and wait while the FBI investigates. She's going after Mary herself - headlong and relentless - on a twisting and violent cross-country pursuit to get her child back. But to track a madwoman, Laura will have to think like one....

A Bram Stoker Award winner, this "expertly constructed novel of suspense and horror" (Publishers Weekly) from the author of Swan Song, Speaks the Nightbird, and other acclaimed works is "feverishly exciting...a page-whipping thriller" (Kirkus Reviews).

From the most sinister of opening chapters to the thrilling conclusion, this is a captivating story of two desperate women willing to go as far as it takes to achieve their goals. Simply brilliant.

American Radical nightmare!

Mary Terror! This is another great one by Robert McCammon! I’ve wanted to read this since it was published. Never got around to it, but so glad to be able to listen to it now. McCammon really is one of the best and most consistent in the genre. I’ve been reading him since high school. He’s such a great story teller. So solid.

Frustratingly Idiotic

There are five hours left in this book and it should already be over. I should not have to listen to McCammon stretch out the most ridiculous storyline I’ve ever heard.

I won’t spoil it, but be warned—you will want to scream at the UNBELIEVABLY STUPID storyline about 3/4 of the way through the book.

It’s surprising given the amazing work McCammon has created. This ain’t one of them.

I had to turn it off.

Pretty brutal

Good. I love the author but didn't expect how brutal this would be to get through. That being said, good.

Started this book when I was younger...

This book scarred me when I was younger. It obviously caught my attention with the opening pages. I was always eager to find and finish it.

but now that I'm older, I can see it was basically a quick fix type of book. it has its gore, action, and simple premise. but it lacks everything in between.

it was quick and to the point details but nothing more. the character arcs could have been better, but it was what it was.

I dont buy Laura's super human endurance and shooting skills.

if your looking for an ENTERTAINING book. listen to this.
