Publisher's Summary

There is something in the dark. Billy can hear it, and knows it's coming for him.

From the best-selling author of Whisper, Funhouse, Project Apex, and The Island comes a disturbing new novella.

Following a power outage, Billy sends his wife and son to stay with family whilst he awaits the arrival of the man from Trans-Energy to come and restore power to their isolated country home. Darkness draws near, and with it comes the engineer - a giant of a man who calls himself 'Grant'.

Billy lets the man into his home, only to find that he is anything but normal. Without power or contact with the outside world, Billy is forced to deal with the mental and physical torture from the increasingly unstable and volatile engineer, and is forced to go to the most extreme lengths in order to try and survive.

Very Original Horror

I was given this book upon my request for free & I left my review voluntarily. I gave this one 5 stars. It's such a different kind of horror story with some epic gore in it. It seemed a mix of Gremlins on steroids with The Thing off steroids. Great originality with some epic, edge of you seat fight or flight, slapstick comedy & gorey bodily damage!! Characters are well developed with no lag or sleepiness involved. Great narrator for this story. All the proper emotions needed for the story. He kept me on the edge of my darn seat the whole time & even pulled a tear to my eye at time. The change of voice & accent was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!! I would definitely recommend this to anyone into horror, gore or intense storylines! Not for young children though. Think twice before you call for a repair man of ANY kind in the future. Watch out for the Snifferblobs & keep your supplies of human heads if you want to sleep though the night safely. BOO!! lol. Happy Dreeeeams.....muuuhahahaha

Beware the dark

There's something evil in the dark. Beware! This story has a surprise ending and I loved it. S. W. Salzman is quickly becoming a favorite narrator of mine. excellent performance.

Wow

This is the first I’ve read from Mr. Bray but it won’t be the last. The book was well written. Something about it reminded me of Nick Cutter a bit. The narration was excellent as well.
