A psychopathic female fugitive provokes a mother's vengeance in this terrifying thriller by the New York Times-bestselling 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 sixties 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).… (mais)

Horror, thriller, kidnapping, action adventure - this book has it all. Definitely a wild read and an addicting page turner. I am a huge Robert McCammon fan and this novel did not disappoint. Highly recommended. ( )

My brain needed a good scrub in a long hot shower after spending time inside the main character’s mind. She is one freaky psychopath. Lots of strong, kick-ass female characters. The plot tore along and I could not put this down once it gained enough momentum. There was only one real flaw with this story, but it nagged at me throughout. I get that you don’t f*** with mothers and this was one determined lady, but my suspension of disbelief was pretty challenged by the antics of a woman who had just given birth, literally a couple of days before, complete with epidural and episiotomy. I could believe that she’d power through whatever discomfort, pain, etc., that she’d have to, under the circumstances. But the actual challenges a woman would face in those circumstances aren’t referred to, even obliquely. More is made of her dog-bite injuries.

Nevertheless, I highly recommend.

A bit of a slow start, but then turned into a roller coaster of a ride. Well done. ( )

I am a big fan of Robert R. McCammon's work. I have never read a book of his that I didn't really, really like. What I mainly like about his work is that each book is completely different. He can write suspenseful thrillers, coming-of-age stories, mysteries, as well as what I believe he really succeeds at...horror. His writing talent appears to be endless. In this one he has created one of the most diabolically un-hinged characters that I have ever encountered...Mary Terrell, also known as "Mary Terror". He created someone you could weirdly relate to and at times even like, but then be presented with the horror at the things she does and the things that she says...a female Hannibal Lector. Mary was once a member of the fanatical Storm Front Brigade in the 60's and is completely convinced that their surviving leader and Mary's one time lover, Jack, wants to build a life with her. In her crazy, twisted mind she feels she can't reunite with him without bringing a baby with her to replace the one they'd lost. She now precedes to steals a newborn from a hospital. Laura, the mother of the stolen child can't wait for the police, so she goes after this psychopath through three states no less. David is the newborn son of iron-willed journalist Laura Clayborne. Laura had just dumped her unfaithful husband and was determined that she's not about to lose her child too, so when the FBI knows that the kidnapper is Mary, who has now killed several people while escaping Atlanta Laura sets after the madwoman on her own. - Laura picks up Mary's trail in Michigan that sets off a ferocious chase that features, among other over-the-top events a blizzard, several enraged pit bulls, homegrown surgery, a mutilated FBI agent on a rampage, and a completely predictable resolution. Overall, this is a book of blood, guts and crazy road trips, but and one that is nearly impossible to put down. ( )

A psychotic leaves a trail of murder victims in her wake after she kidnaps a newborn child and goes off to join a revolutionary group to which she belonged during the '60s. Although McCammon portrays his left-wing characters as motivated by adolescent rebellion rather than by radical politics, he delivers an expertly constructed novel of suspense and horror.
