Product description


“Mephisto is the psycho to end all psychos.” - The Vancouver Sun

“Red Snow is another Slade Slam-dunk! Michael Slade’s genius lies in being able to scare his readers to death by showing them, with perfect clarity, the terrifying banality of true evil, injecting psychotic nightmares into humdrum, everyday reality." - Jack Whyte

“This one is guaranteed to keep you awake with the lights burning.” - The Globe and Mail

“In the annals of dark fiction, Canada can claim one true champion in Michael Slade, an inventive, twisted writer of tricky, internationally celebrated macabre prose.” - Toronto Star

“Michael Slade’s books are blood-chilling, spine-tingling, gut-wrenching, stomach-churning, and a much closer look at the inside of a maniac’s brain than most people would find comfortable—but always riveting.” - Diana Gabaldon

“[Red Snow] takes Games security fears to the max …. Slade … has tapped into the terrorism fears hovering around the buildup to the Olympics.” - Edmonton Journal

“Red Snow is crisply-written, sly and exciting. Michael Slade is a writer who clearly knows how to tell a story and make it real. A warning: it’s not for the squeamish, or for those who suffer from chionophobia (the fear of snow, red or otherwise).” - Robert McCammon

“As always with Slade, a cracking good detective story; he gives shock horror a chilling new dimension—I’ll never look at the Winter Olympics in quite the same way after reading Red Snow!” - Anne Perry

“Red Snow is Michael Slade in top form with his trademarked relentless pacing and one of the most ingenious and unsettling murder weapons ever imagined.” - F. Paul Wilson

“Red Snow is Ian Fleming-esque in its narrative drive. In the canon of Michael Slade supervillains, perhaps none is so broadly perverse as Mephisto, an intellectual with a general loathing of mankind. He makes Hannibal Lecter look like a dime store hoodlum. Red Snow is another winner from Slade.” - Fangoria --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
