    More Information:

    The author's fourth novel. First published as a paperback original by Warner Books in 1989. This novel "takes the theme of understanding human behavior straight to and over the edge ... This is probably the most terrifying of Ketchum's novels because it addresses the sick desire of all human beings to be voyeurs into the pain and suffering of others ... Ketchum has made a major contribution to the field of psychological horror by virtue of his spare, tight prose, his well=rounded characters and his unflinching gaze into the depths of human depravity. Like the crime novelist Andrew Vachss, Ketchum is at heart a moralist, and his excesses are in the services of morality." - Ann Kennedy, Pringle (ed), St. James Guide to Horror. Ghost & Gothic Writers (1998), p. 321. Reginald 27096.
