The Five is not Robert R. McCammon's best work...but it's not his worst. Having said that, it is a very good story and a very interesting book.

It tells the story of a Rock Band, the Five, on its last tour through the American Southwest. Through an unfortunate chain of events, they come in contact with an Iraq war vet who is determined to kill them.

McCammon is in his form when he writes about the characters and their back story. Of particular note is the eerie setting and story he gives to the Stone Church section.

My problem with the book is that he never truly explains what is happening. Is this supernatural or not? He seems like he sets up a great premise only to drop it and never return to it (like Stone Church).

But over all, the journey is worth the ride. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good story.
