A magnificent tale of dark mystery and psychological suspense from the acclaimed author of The Talisman and Mr X. First published in 1993 and now reissued in a new cover. Writer Tim Underhill, the haunted Vietnam-vet hero of Koko, has been summoned by childhood friend John Ransom to his home town of Millhaven, the site of old horrors now plagued by new demons. After decades of silence, it appears that the Blue Rose killer has struck again -- brutally murdering Ransom's wife. Assisted in his search for the truth by the reclusive amateur detective Tom Pasmore, Underhill is swiftly drawn into a dark labyrinth of lies and deceit, each turn punctuated by jolting shocks, leading inexorably back to the terrors of his own past -- to mysterious events in the jungles of Vietnam; to the day he witnessed the killing of his young sister; and to the ensuing series of murders that rocked the city.

New in New jacket. 689 page hardcover. "In this searing novel of psychological terror, Tim Underhill, the haunted Vietnam vet-hero of KOKO, courts ultimate destruction as he dares to look back to a dark past that holds the secret of the evil which signs it name Blue Rose...THE THROAT is Peter Straub's ultimate thriller, his most powerful book to date. Brilliantly executed, it tightens the screws of suspense as it toys with our expectations and primal fears." I could quote more but the blurb writer is getting dangerously close to purple prose land. New, unread copy: spine square, TINY bit of bumping at two upper corners of boards else the book is perfect with NO markings throughout. The dj is price-clipped, VERY minor bumping at heel of spine else it's perfect, also, with no other flaws. NOT an ex-library, NOT a book club, NOT a remainder. New in New dj.
