Tim Underhill, now an acclaimed novelist, travels back to his home - town of Millhaven, Illinois after he gets a call from John Ransom, an old army buddy. Ransom believes there's a copycat killer on the loose, mimicking the Blue Rose murders from decades earlier - he thinks his wife could be a potential victim. Underhill seeks out his friend Tom Pasmore, an aging hermit who has attained minor celebrity as an expert sleuth, to help him investigate.

They quickly discover that Millhaven is a town plagued by horrifying secrets and there is a twisted killer on the loose who is far more dangerous than they ever imagined. Expertly tying together the events of Koko and Mystery, The Throat proves Peter Straub to be the master of the suspense novel.

    " Great novel by Straub. A true page turner. Decent characters. I loved the ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jesse | 2/11/2014

    " Incredible. Really brings The Blue Rose Trilogy to a beautiful, stunning end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian Lunde | 2/2/2014

    " Book 2 of "The Blue Rose Trilogy" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cissa | 1/21/2014

    " Rating it a 3 is a bit low, but I don't think it's quite a 4. Nicely twisty plot; I predicted some parts of it but not all. I think its real lack was in good characterization; in many ways it's character-driven, but the characters were rather 1-dimensional. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 El | 1/14/2014

    " Deserves 10 stars. He's one great great writer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karl Steffey | 1/14/2014

    " Throat by Peter Straub (1993) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 1/12/2014

    " BIG book suspense/thriller. Good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 1/4/2014

    " Amazing. Take the best Stephen King you ever read, and then throw in Apocalypse Now, Sherlock Holmes, and more twists and turns than a twisty-turny thing. Can't rec the "Blue Rose" trilogy enough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Venessa | 11/24/2013

    " Last in the Blue Rose Trilogy and, for me, the least engaging of the three {Koko hands down is my favorite, a masterpiece}. Told in 1st person, instead of 3rd, with Tim Underhill as our intrepid narrator with welcome appearances by Tom Pasmore. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shirleegt | 11/21/2013

    " This book is so good I've read it at least twice and will always have a copy on my shelves. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adele | 11/17/2013

    " I liked the parts that dealt with Tom Passmore and Tim Underhill. Mystery was a better book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donald | 9/22/2013

    " This whole trilogy was great, one of my favorites now. The changing background stories are a bit of a trip, but a great one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Glenn | 9/18/2013

    " 3.5 stars. An intricate plot that got better as it went along. There were many twists and turns in the plot that kept me engaged. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maybeth Shirah | 8/2/2013

    " from the Blue Rose trilogy--this is book 3--it's a book I can reread over and over "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fishface | 2/6/2013

    " Another horrifying Blue Rose mystery. Not to be missed. This story is so engrossing that it got me through one of the most traumatic experiences of my life. It just drew me completely away from real life, and reminded me that I could be even worse off than I was. Bravo, Mr. Straub. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven Belanger | 2/5/2013

    " So well-written that I read all 600 pages or so in about three days. Straub is simply a good writer. Good story; characterization; mood; setting. All coalesce to an effective creepiness. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ceci | 1/11/2013

    " This is my favourite novel by Straub... a truely chilling, clever, beautifully written mystery. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shelli Proffitt Howells | 12/10/2012

    " Because I had enjoyed Koko, I thought I might enjoy this one. Wrong! It felt like he was just throwing crap to see what might stick to the page. I like meaty characters, and his characters were just so inconsistent and undeveloped. I'd expect better writing from an author like this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mindy White | 9/22/2012

    " This is my third reading and I very seldom repeat read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charles | 8/14/2012

    " Not Straub's best but pretty good. Straub is a superb writer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caiti Anthony | 1/2/2012

    " This is the final book in a trilogy by Peter Straub. I actually read this one first and loved the twist at the end so much, that I couldn't wait to forget it enough to read it again. "
