Trapped underground, how will they escape?
Midnight's Lair is a terrifying journey into evil by the highly acclaimed Richard Laymon. Perfect for fans of Stephen King and Dean Koontz.
Mordocks's cave is one of the wonders of the world: a place where, every year, thousands of sightseers go deep beneath the earth's surface to marvel at Nature's handiwork. But it's also home to things Nature never intended - violent, evil things. And when a power failure traps a group of tourists underground, the creatures emerge from the darkness...
What readers are saying about Midnight's Lair:
'Written with Laymon's usual fast-paced, action packed, no-holds-barred style of writing, you'll find the novel difficult to put down at any point, with the next horrifying event just around the corner'
'This is 253 pages of pure splatterpunk heaven, delivering classic Laymon horror with a no-holds-barred approach and a reflection of his truly twisted imagination. Absolutely great stuff!'
'The pace is frenetic, the characters are both endearing and repulsive, and the gratuitous violence is almost non-stop. Never have I read a book that could leave me slack jawed with horror and something akin to awe'
Fast-paced and tightly constructed, this novel by the author of The Stake combines the best elements of psycho-slasher thrillers, disaster epics and classic supernatural horror tales. When a power failure traps a tourist group deep in Mordock's Cavern, tour guide Darcy Raines leads a small team that attempts to break through Ely's Wall, a man-made barrier sealing off one end of the cave. Creepy Kyle Mordock, teenage descendant of Ely, the wall's builder, and son of the attraction's current owner, is along on the tour because of his morbid erotic fascination with the beautiful Darcy. Flashbacks reveal that he has recently inherited a longstanding Mordock family trait, namely, the propensity to rape and murder female guests of the Mordock Cave Hotel and dump the bodies in the sealed-off part of the cave. Laymon adds fiendishly clever topspin to this gruesome revelation, placing on the other side of the wall a danger grislier and more bizarre than any natural disaster or psychotic killer. Horror fans will relish this highly entertaining tale.
