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

Blackwell North Amer
In The Hellfire Club, Peter Straub has not only created a villain as diabolical, clever, and fascinating as Hannibal Lecter, but has also written his most gripping, concentrated, and startling novel to date. At stake are the fates of both a loyal and courageous woman and a long-established publishing house. Nora Chancel, struggling to maintain her marriage, well-being, and independence, is unwillingly drawn into a treacherous double mystery: One of the strands involves a series of vicious murders; the other concerns an otherworldly novel so influential that its most ardent admirers literally give over their lives to it.
