Overview

“A harrowing, up-all-night read with delicious scares at every turn. Joe Schreiber knows just what terrifies us, and his masterly skills are on full display.”
–Tess Gerritsen, author of The Bone Garden

“One part noir, one part horror, one part the uniquely talented Joe Schreiber. Dark, chilling, scary–I couldn’t put it down.”
–Peter Abrahams, author of Nerve Damage

Escorted from prison under heavy guard, murderous psychopath Frank Snow is scheduled for an emergency brain scan at Tanglewood Memorial Hospital, an institution that is closing its doors after one final night of operation. But Snow has something far more terrifying planned. And once the lights go out, a fiendish game of hide-and-seek begins.

Alone in the dark with a homicidal madman who knows their fears, their secrets, and their every move, MRI technician Mike Hughes, his wife and child, and the other unlucky souls trapped in the hospital have no choice but to duel with the devil incarnate. If they play by their stalker’s twisted rules, some of them might just survive. But there’s more to Frank Snow than the naked eye can see . . . or the sane mind can bear.

“Eat the Dark is a tight novel of terror. Well written, fast paced, with a grip like a claw. I loved it.”
–Joe R. Lansdale, author of The Bottoms

“Reminiscent of Stephen King’s early work, Eat the Dark is a terrifying, claustrophobic, bone-chilling, unputdownable masterpiece of suspense fiction. Human monster Frank Snow is a wonderful creation.”
–Jason Starr, author of The Follower

“I didn't just Eat the Dark–I gorged on it. It’s a master class in fast-moving, scary-as-sh*t storytelling.”
–Duane Swierczynski, author of Severance Package

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Mike Hughes didn't expect his last night at the soon-to-be closed Tanglewood Memorial Hospital to be particularly memorable. But one patient wreaks havoc upon everyone left in the building when the lights go out. Trapped in the foreboding environment, Hughes and others must escape the brutal and deadly clutches of serial killer Jon Snow. Raudman delivers an enjoyable performance overall. Her pacing works well for the many suspenseful moments of the tale. While listeners may not be flinching at the exciting bits, they will certainly feel pangs of anxiety as Raudman increases her pitch and pace. Her tone, deep voice and light rasp often add to the suspense of the story. While some of her male characters come across as vocal caricature, Raudman's best talents reside in her vocalization of Snow and the maniacal edge within her performance that perfectly embodies him. Simultaneous release with Del Rey hardcover (Reviews, Aug 20). (Nov.)

    A powerhouse tale of immense strength

    Mike Hughes works at Tanglewood Memorial Hospital at least through tonight as the place is to shut. However, the thirty four year old married man with a child finds one last patient is to receive an MRI. When the cops and EMTs arrive, he asks who is this person, but receives no answer. Apparently Dr. Walker ordered the scan of notorious serial killer Frank Snow although Mike was not informed of this decision his lover Jolie Braun obviously knew as she took pictures of Snow to sell on EBay. Coming to confront Mike at his place of work are his hurt wife Sarah, who knows he is cheating on her and their son Eli.-------------- Mike begins the process when Snow asks him to hold something and tells him he has special plans for Eli. As he begins the procedure, Sarah challenges his faithfulness forcing Mike to abort the operation he tells her to wait upstairs for him when all hell breaks loose as Snow convulses. Soon afterward Snow escapes, but does not leave the hospital instead he turns off the power and locks the doors as the predator has waited ten years to begin a new killing spree. Mike panics as he fears for the safety of his loved ones.------------------- EAT THE DARK is a throwback serial killer thriller that grips the audience the moment the lights go out and never let¿s go until the final confrontation as Mike risks his life to save those he cherishes forever while feeling like he is CHASING THE DEAD as the body count rises. Filled with a late twist, fans of old fashion Jason-like horror movies will appreciate Joe Schreiber¿s dark thriller.------------------ Harriet Klausner
