Thunder Road (2004)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger

Thunder Road (2004)
THUNDER ROAD is an epic book, in both page and scope, akin to Stephen King's THE STAND. It all takes place in the small town of Madelyn, located out in the Californian desert. Here, people commonly see UFO's in the skies and a new local cult, by the name of the Prophet's Apostles, is telling everyone that the end of the world is coming within the week! Locals are disappearing and more cattle and sheep are found mutilated. Is it the result of those UFO's? Or is it the cult, whose members are quickly becoming more violent? But it could also be the serial killer by the name of 'The Peeler' who managed to quit his killing and had moved to this very town over a dozen years ago.THUNDER ROAD also boasts is a wide assortment of extremely well-thought out characters, from the stereotypical (wanting to be) cowboy who owns the small local amusement park to Alex, the visiting UFO investigator to Justin, a young serial killer in the making (whose idol is 'The Peeler'). The 'voices' he hears, which may be aliens, gave him this nearly buried piece of information.The US Airforce, which has a base nearby, looms as a constant reminder that there might ultimately something unearthly going on in Madelyn. The Prophets of the Apostle is also a bomb waiting to go off that you KNOW will explode badly. The UFO's over town are also appearing in frequency and there are some interesting sightings, one of which radically affects the leader of the cult. All the various storylines weave seamlessly into the conclusion although not every question is answered. The characters you've been rooting for-and the ones you've hated-all get what's coming to them. This was the first Thorne book I've read and I was pleasantly surprised. IT was daunting looking at the 499 review copy-but once I started reading it was a page turner. And it's the first time I've ever seen the alien abduction and serial killer themes tackled in the same novel. Recommended.Originally published in 1995 (Pocket Books) under the pseudonym Chris Curry.
