    The Five

    Author: Robert McCammon
    Pub. Date: May 2011
    Status: Forthcoming

    Stephen King says:
    "The Five isn't just Robert McCammon's best novel in years; it's his best novel ever. Terrifying, suspenseful, unputdownable, and full of rock and roll energy. It's also uplifting, a book you'll finish feeling better about your world, your friends, and your music. Here's one you'll beg friends to read."

    The Five
    by Robert McCammon

    Publisher: Subterranean Press
    Publication Date: May 2011
    Trade Hardcover (Flat Signed By The Author): $26.95
    Deluxe Signed Limited Edition: 274 signed numbered copies, in slipcase, including several color plates not in the trade hardcover ($125)

    About the Book:
    Subterranean Press is proud to present Robert McCammon's first contemporary novel in nearly two decades, a tale of the hunt and unlikely survival, of the life and soul, set against a supernatural backbeat.

    Robert McCammon, author of the popular Matthew Corbett historical thrillers (Speaks the Nightbird, Mister Slaughter), now gives us something new and completely unexpected: The Five, a contemporary novel as vivid, timely, and compelling as anything he has written to date.

    The Five tells the story of an eponymous rock band struggling to survive on the margins of the music business. As they move through the American Southwest on what might be their final tour together, the band members come to the attention of a damaged Iraq war veteran, and their lives are changed forever.

    The narrative that follows is a riveting account of violence, terror, and pursuit set against a credible, immensely detailed rock and roll backdrop. It is also a moving meditation on loyalty and friendship, on the nature and importance of families—those we are born into and those we create for ourselves—and on the redemptive power of the creative spirit. Written with wit, elegance, and passionate conviction, The Five lays claim to new imaginative territory, and reaffirms McCammon’s position as one of the finest, most unpredictable storytellers of our time.

            I am in the process of re discovering McCammon's earlier works and so am looking forward to this one. While I have enjoyed his recent books, his return to a contemporary setting sounds excellent. And with added rock n roll!

              Although each new McCammon is an Event (well, to me, at least..) I'm not to enthousiastic -yet- about this book.
              Can't explain why not.
              Maybe it's the cover, or the rock and roll backdrop...
