"Blaze is the story of Clayton Blaisdell, Jr.--of the crimes committed against him and the crimes he commits, including his last, the kidnapping of a baby heir worth millions. Blaze has been a slow thinker since childhood, when his father threw him down the stairs--and then threw him down again. After escaping an abusive institution for boys when he was a teenager, Blaze hooks up with George, a seasoned criminal who thinks he has all the answers. But then George is killed, and Blaze, though haunted by his partner, is on his own. He becomes one of the most sympathetic criminals in all of literature. This is a crime story of surprising strength and sadness, with a suspenseful current sustained by the classic workings of fate and character..."--Publisher website.

In the foreward by Stephen King, he indicates this was not his greatest novel. I actually tend to disagree. Though the story was one of his shorter ones, I truly enjoyed it. the setting was well done. The main character is an endearing sort despite all his misgivings. I was grossed out in parts as I expect from the King of Horror, to my pleasure (he never disappoints there). As usually the story is set out so vividly it's nearly like watching it on screen.
I had plenty of laughs reading it. I am only sorry it took me so long to find this old treasure.
