Blaze is a crime novel by Stephen King, written under the pseudonym of Richard Bachman.
It 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 strengh and sadness, with a suspenseful current sustained by the classic workings of fate and character - as taut and riveting as Stephen Kings's The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon.
