Publisher's Summary

It is the last night before Tanglewood Memorial closes for good, and MRI technician Mike Hughes arrives for his final shift at the hospital. Between the bare-bones staff and the fact that all the patients have already been moved to the new facility, Mike is prepared for a quiet night.

All that changes when a special patient arrives, complete with a five-man police escort: the infamous serial killer Frank Snow has been brought in for a brain MRI. As if that's not enough, Mike's wife Sarah decides to drop in unexpectedly, along with their young son, Eli. Then Snow unexpectedly breaks free, cuts the power, and locks the doors. Now he's loose in the old, dark hospital, hunting its last occupants one by one, and escape seems to be the furthest thing from his mind.

What the Critics Say

"Like a tour of The Twilight Zone via Stephen King." (James Rollins)
"Abandon hope, all readers who enter Schreiber's taut, scary debut: you're not going anywhere until you devour every one of its tension-filled pages. Readers will anxiously await his next outing." (Publishers Weekly)

    Story
    "Horror ruined by whining"
    What would have made Eat the Dark better?

    Okay, so maybe I expect too much from narrators but the child voice she uses was so whiney and shrill that I finally just had to stop listening. Nobody should have to listen to that.


    What could Joe Schreiber have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The setting in the hospital made it intriguing but it eventually just seemed to slide into a typical slasher film. Much of the suspsense is just ruined by familiarity.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A different narrator would have been the only way to save this one.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was disappointed in the paint by numbers quality of the story. Good start but it just goes downhill from there. Just meh.
