Richard Bachman is back from the dead with this suprisingly touching tale of high crime and low criminals. For those unaware, Bachman is a pen name that Stephen King secretly used long ago. The book is more Bachman than it is King, however, though King does leave the occasional fingerprint. The novel is well writen and well paced. Bachman (or is it King?) has created on of the most endearing and pitifully human villians in Clayton Blaisdell, Jr. The story is noir tragedy at its finest. Bachman creates the grainy black and white atmosphere of any good Cagney gangster film and gives it Steinbeck's heart. Think of Ed McBain and Of Mice and Men stirred up with more than a touch of Bachman's spice. Suspenseful to the very end, King (or is it Bachman?) finishes not with a whimper, but a bang.
