Product Description

From Library Journal

A murky little ghost story. The Erskine family is a loving and happy one till trouble comes to tranquil Smalltown, USA. Their son's ex-girlfriend disappears; a sinister priest moves into the vacant church; their daughter makes a date with a boy who has been dead for a year; and a murderous lunatic is released from the mental institution. Worst of all, the youngest daughter is having nightmares that parallel or even precede these events. But are her nightmares merely portents, or is she the cause of the troubles? Definitely not A Nightmare on Elm Street , Grant's novel has an entirely different style and atmosphere. However, it is unclear even by the novel's close which events have really happened and which ones are only dreams. By the author of The Pet , this is for libraries with a large horror following.

No monsters, no axe murders... April 21 2005
By B. Gumm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
...just the power of the human mind combined with a good amount of paranormal activity, which come together to create a doozy of a great horror novel!

This book is definitely worth a read and makes me glad I recently found a large selection of Charles L. Grant novels at a local used book store.

Surrealist horror at its finest May 7 2000
By Chadwick H. Saxelid - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I refuse to give away of this novel's excellent story. Needless to say, for those familiar with Grant's work at least, the characters are as haunted by their own emotions as they are by the supernatural. And the title should be taken literally. Now go out and read it.
