The Terror of Living Summary

The Terror of Living by Urban Waite

Hunt, an ex-convict, has spent the past twenty years on a small ranch with his wife, supplementing his income with the odd drug smuggling job. Drake, a deputy sheriff, is newly married and has almost escaped the shadow of his father, who was also a sheriff -- and no stranger to the drug trade himself...Drake is on Hunt's trail when a big drug deal in the mountains goes awry and so begins a terrifying race against time. Although Hunt evades Drake's attempts at capture the traffickers soon unleash a merciless hired killer to reclaim what's theirs. As the chase closes in and loyalties are tested, Drake's quest for justice contends with a hitman's quest for blood, and Hunt must face a terrible choice...

The Terror of Living Reviews

'A hell of a good novel, relentlessly paced and beautifully narrated ... Strong narrative voice, auspicious debut' - Stephen King 'Make a note of the name -- for this debut heralds the arrival of a 30 year old thriller writer who might just become a star ... Told with a force that lifts off the page, and a sentient clarity about ordinary people trapped in crisis, it's a superb debut thriller' - Daily Mail 'More artistry than would seem possible in a conventional thriller. His descriptions of the stark beauty of the mountains have a calming effect on the intensity of the cinematic action scenes' - New York Times 'Always taut, always intelligent, always bloody, this is an outstanding debut thriller' - Sunday Telegraph 'Waite is an impressive writer with a lean, muscular style reminiscent of his obvious heroes - McCarthy, Hemingway, Steinbeck, Stone' - Guardian
