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).… (mere)

There was a point where I really thought I wasn't going to like this novel. It was about a third of the way in, and not much was happening.

Then McCammon kicked it into gear. Overall, there were points where I thought, Damn, I'd love to see what King would have done with this.. After all, King's playground is so huge, other authors can't help but end up playing there, but McCammon seemed to more than most. I don't think it was ever by design, but still it happened frequently.

This, to me, is the type of story King excels at. Digging back into the late-Sixties radicalism, the road novel, the cat-and-mouse game, and the psychopath at the heart of it. King's take likely would have been just as good, but I'm not sure he would have taken it in the same direction.

For the most part, the direction McCammon took was good, if a little risky. He spent as much, if not more time, in the villain--Mary Terror--POV. And I think this may have been a case of "too much". She was convincing early on, but I grew a bit weary of the Jim-Morrison-is-God and the mind-fuck state comments all the time.

But, in the second half of the novel, when the chase is really on, it's really on, and McCammon's writing has never been sharper. The back-to-back scenes involving the dogs and the car chase (you'll know when you get there) were flat-out amazing, and the final scene also rocked, as it needed to.

The combination of Blue World and this novel showed McCammon nearly at the top of his game.

Now, if I remember the novel as well as I think, he improved even more with the next novel and, as far as I'm concerned (at least as of today), his best.

Let's see of Boy's Life holds up as well as I think it will. ( )

REVIEWED: Mine
WRITTEN BY: Robert R. McCammon
PUBLISHED: May, 1990

A fast-paced thriller that will keep you turning the pages. A psychotic woman, trapped in the delusions of her revolutionary hippie days, kidnaps a baby to give to the man she worships. The baby's mother chases after the woman, risking everything to save her newborn. Filled with action, suspense, and solid plot turns, this novel is another success for Robert McCammon. ( )

Title: A twisted past and a horrifying present collide
Summary:
This is the story of two women that are brought together by a time in history when they thought that they could change the world. One tried to change it by doing protest marches and participating in sit-ins while the other thought that her and her group could accomplish more with a more hands on approach that included terror and murder. One out grew her protest days while the other had her dream of revolution crushed in a night of fire and bullets.
Twenty years later Laura is married and works as a reporter covering the social scene for the local newspaper. She is also nine months pregnant and is due any day. She also suspects that her life is in a rut and that her husband is cheating on her. Nevertheless she is hoping that with the baby on the way that her and her husband can fix their marriage and things will go back to the way that they used to be.
Mary, AKA Mary Terror, sits in a dingy apartment never quite knowing what is real and what is not real. All she knows is that the enemy is always watching and no one can ever be trusted. She goes about her daily routine, always ready to bolt or kill if she thinks that her cover has been blown; until one day she comes across a message in an underground magazine. In the magazine there is a message that may be from the leader of her old group. Deciding that her old boss might want to get the gang back together, Mary packs her bags and sets out to the old rendezvous point, on the way she also decides that she needs to bring her old boss an offering…
The collision course is now set. Mary steals Laura’s baby from the hospital and what should have been the happiest day of Laura’s life has now become the most horrifying. As the hours and then days drag on it becomes clear that Mary is just as good at evading the authorities now as she was back in her heyday. With no progress being made Laura takes matters into her own hands and begins tracking Mary on her own. Following every lead she can puts Laura on Mary’s trail but, that is only the beginning. As Laura closes in she finds that the only way to track Mary is to think like Mary, act like Mary. Which leaves her with the terrifying question: To save her son, is she willing to go as far as Mary?

My Thoughts:
This was one of those books I had a tough time putting down. This author always writes a good story and like usual I wasn’t disappointed. The lead up to the actual chase is a little slow but it makes sense when the story hits full speed and there are a few surprises toward the end. I didn’t want to give to much away in my description as that would ruin some of what made the story good. The characters are also well developed, even if one or two are kind of one-note and just kind of move the story along where necessary. Those are my only minor nitpicks. If you looking for a good thriller, then give this one a read. You won’t be disappointed. m.a.c ( )

Ew. Imagery just too gross. Domestic situation too hackneyed.
  Bookmarque | Mar 24, 2017 |
Slightly better than average thriller, would probably work better as a movie. There's one big problem I have with this type of book. When you get to (seemingly) a big showdown moment, but there's still two hundred pages to go, you know the main characters are going to survive and advance the story. So this happens five or six times... and not much is resolved and the story moves on. Could have been just as good with half the length. ( )

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.
