Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Suspenseful.” —The New York Times

“An electrifying finish: During the last forty pages my hands were as good as nailed to the book.” —Stephen King
 
“Straub is terrifyingly accomplished in the art of horror.” —Entertainment Weekly
 
“Peter Straub is a national treasure.” —Lawrence Block 

 “You expect the horrifying in the fiction of Peter Straub . . . and you get it.” —The New York Times 

“More than a good storyteller with a talent for scaring readers. He’s a writer who transcends his genre.” —USA Today

“[Straub] is a master at blurring the supernatural, the real-world-scary, and the monsters in your psyche.” —The Plain Dealer (Cleveland)

 “Not since Edgar Allan Poe has an author taken such liberties with his readers’ nerves.” —Cosmopolitan

“Straub’s literary specialty . . . is not dreams but nightmares. . . . He’s particularly adept at the kind of creepy psychological yarn pioneered by Henry James and modernized by Shirley Jackson.” —Salon

“Straub is the master of subtle, smoldering dread.” —People

 “Peter Straub is one of his generation’s best storytellers. . . . [Stephen] King goes for your jugular; Straub goes for your brain.” —Tor.com
