Most of the rest of it

A couple of days ago I was scanning my bookshelves for something to read. I couldn't make my mind up whether to go for a crime novel, or sci-fi or even something a bit technical. In the end I opted for a book by Richard Laymon. A few years ago now I had read one of his called 'Island' about a...

Jody escapes along with...

Endless Night is one of the most disturbing books written by Laymon, the story begins with a bunch of serial killers who break into houses and slaughter everyone in it. Jody Fargo is a sixteen year old daughter of a cop, who is having a sleepover at her friends when the killers break in, they...

As the author died in 2001 I think it unlikely he will be producing a prequel to "Endless Night" See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Laymon
