The Regulators

Front Cover
Hodder & Stoughton, Jun 14, 2007 - Fiction - 448 pages

Wentworth, Ohio: a small friendly town where the Carver children bicker over sweets in the E-Z shop and writer Johnny Marinville is the only resident who minds his own business.

On Poplar Street, apart from the impending storm, it's just a normal summer's day - with Frisbees flying, lawn mowers humming and barbeques grilling. As the paperboy makes his round, he is unaware of the chrome red van idling up the hill . . .

Soon the residents will be caught up in a game of wills as the regulators arrive in force to face a child whose powers of expression are just awakening.

About the author (2007)

In his `lifetime`, Richard Bachman published five novels. A sixth, THE REGULATORS, was published after he died of pseudonym cancer `a relatively painless way to go` in 1985. He developed a cult following both before and after his death. Two of his novels `THINNER and THE RUNNING MAN` were made into motion pictures.

BLAZE--both brutal and sensitive--is his final legacy. The last of the Bachman novels, written in 1973 and published for the first time. Stephen King`s `dark half` may have saved the best for last.
