Review:

‘Far and away the best book Peter Straub has ever done … moves like an express train. Dick Dart alone is worth the price of admission.’
Stephen King

‘Enough fearful twists for everyone … wildly inventive, highly entertaining … the story lifts off the page and soars irresistibly.’
New York Times

‘Powerful psychothriller suspense … complex, intriguing, with multiple, meshing plots in which the sins of the past power the active evil of the present.’
Washington Post

‘Straub’s most riveting read since Ghost Story … a harrowing, spellbinding story.’
Bradford Morrow

From the Back Cover:

MASTER STORYTELLER PETER STRAUB’S FINEST NOVEL YET IS A NERVE – JANGLING THRILLER OF ASTONISHING PACE, FEATURING ONE OF THE MOST HYPNOTIC KILLERS EVER CREATED

Family-run publishing company Chancel House suddenly faces financial ruin when rumours about the true origins of their cult fantasy best-seller 'Night Journey' unexpectedly surface. But the Chancel family’s nightmare has only just begun – for brilliant killer Dick Dart, whose cunning is exceeded only by his depravity, is about to kidnap Nora Chancel, taking her on a terrifying trip that has alarming echoes of 'Night Journey'. Cut off from all outside help, with nothing but her own sharp wits to defend herself, Nora soon comes to realise that the only hope of outfoxing her obsessed captor lies in unravelling the truth behind this mysterious book.

“Enough fearful twists for everyone … wildly inventive, highly entertaining … the story lifts off the page and soars irresistibly”

“Powerful psychothriller suspense … complex, intriguing, with multiple meshing plots in which the sins of the past power the active evil of the present”
WASHINGTON POST
