Overview

From Douglas Clegg, award-winning author of Isis and Neverland, comes a nightmarish vision of Washington, D.C.where a new horror is born within the walls of an ancient house -- haunted by murder, a nightmarish ritual, and a terrifying legacy of the past. (Rated P for Pulp Fiction. *See Author's Note, below.)

"The tension seldom flags as this tale builds to a grisly, suspense-filled climax.As in Goat Dance , his first book, Clegg pulls out the stops of terror: cannibalism, the devil, good magic turned to evil, grave-robbing and the undead all make this a chilling story." -- Publisher's Weekly.

"Douglas Clegg knows exactly what scares us, and he knows just how to twist those fears into hair-raising chills..." - Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of the Rizzoli & Isles series.


THIS HOUSE HAS A NAME...

Rachel Adair thought Draper House in Washington, D.C, would be the perfect place to try and start a family.

But as soon they moved into the century-old townhouse, the nightmares began: horrific images of the child Rachel lost; the unforgivable sins of Hugh's father; scenes of blood-curdling rituals . . . and the scraping sounds of an even greater terror that lives within the walls . . .

THEY CALL IT THE SCREAMING HOUSE

In the late 1960s, it was just a crumbling tenement, but a ritual of evil baptized the walls of the house with horror -- and brought a new nightmare into the world.

"CLEGG DELIVERS!"

"Breeder is a white-knuckle read from beginning to end...Clegg delivers!" -- John Saul, NY Times bestselling author.

And now, a young couple, hopeful for their future, have arrived -- to wake the house from its long sleep.

* AUTHOR'S NOTE: My novel Breeder is not for the faint of heart; it is one of the nastiest novels I've written, up there with The Abandoned, The Attraction and The Necromancer. It is for those readers who love the kind of horror that, well, pulls out the stops.

Most of my novels aren't like this -- I follow a story where it takes me, whether to the quiet horror (Isis, Naomi, Nightmare House), or somewhere in-between (Afterlife, The Children's Hour, You Come When I Call You, etc.)

Additionally, Breeder first came out in 1990 in paperback from Pocket Books. Later, Bloodletting Press did a limited edition hardcover with illustrations by Caniglia. This is the first digital edition. Thank you for reading.
