Richard Laymon

6 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Horror & ghost stories

A haunting novel from the master of horror, in the popular tradition of Stephen King and Dean Koontz

'If you've missed Laymon, you've missed a treat' Stephen King

Beautiful violinist Melanie Conway has visions of death, and when she collapses at a concert her boyfriend, Bodie, is there to hear her premonition.

Penelope Conway is even more stunning than her sister ... but her looks have attracted an obscene caller.

All three are drawn into a nightmare that is fired by sex and haunted by blood.
