Summary
Living with her weakling husband in a Connecticut town that has been the scene of four recent serial murders, housewife Nora Chancel is kidnapped by the accused killer and becomes his hostage on a perilous odyssey through New England, with the police in hot pursuit. Simultaneous.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: The #1 bestselling author of Mystery and Koko at the top of his blockbuster form!

Not since Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs has a writer invented a villain as diabolical, clever, fascinating, and funny as the one Peter Straub has created in serial killer Dick Dart. Having already murdered four women. Dart seizes as a hostage Nora Chancel, who is unwillingly drawn into a treacherous double mystery, and who shines as a heroine of courage, wit, and intelligence.

To survive the ten days of her kidnapping. Nora, without seeming to do so, must outwit Dart, an extraordinarily intuitive and resourceful monster, as they careen around New England in a series of stolen cars with a growing posse of state policemen on their trail.

Powered by suspense that builds at an astonishing pace, and a mystery that deepens the more it is investigated, The Hellfire Club is Peter Straub's most dazzling tribute yet to the imaginative power of sheer storytelling.
