Publisher Description

Robert McCammon's first contemporary novel in nearly two decades, The Five tells the story of an eponymous rock band struggling to survive on the margins of the music business.

As they move through the American Southwest on what might be their final tour together, the band members come to the attention of a damaged Iraq war veteran, and their lives are changed forever. This is a riveting account of violence, terror, and pursuit set against a credible, immensely detailed rock and roll backdrop. It is also a moving meditation on loyalty and friendship.

Written with wit, elegance, and passionate conviction, The Five reaffirms McCammon's position as one of the finest, most unpredictable storytellers of our time.

Earl C Grey ,

What an excellent read!

Robert McCammon has written quite the amazing novel here with 'The Five'.

A nail-biting work of harrowing Suspense, as well as a studied love song to all the Rock Bands and musicians who have embellished and augmented our lives from The 60's to the present day.

I'm writing this review as a working professional musician, as well as a Horror/Suspense fan.
The Five has it All!
It really Is McCammon's finest hour, perhaps even better than his award winning novel, 'Boys Life'.

The Five sings and flows like a finely tuned Rock Opera. Beautifully written, and passionate as all get-out.
Having toiled in the fields of the LA music scene myself, I was amazed by how realistically McCammon captured the highs, lows, and craziness of the music industry.

I really couldn't recommend a book more. An excellent novel.

Love Roberts writing

I have read all his books... This was the last.
It was not good. I am such a fan so this was a very disappointing purchase. I cannot believe the author I live so much had anything to do with this book. It was all filler. Chapters of pointless statistics and off tangent writing.
Very disappointing. I would never recommend this book.
I have had such a great love of his other writing. I have no idea who this writer is.
