Description

“Sliver is the ultimate fin de siècle horror novel, a fiendish goodbye wave to trendy urban living in the last decade of the twentieth century. Mr. Levin has in Sliver created the apartment dweller’s worst nightmare. As always his characters have a texture and a reality that’s almost eerie, and the narrative is as stripped-down and efficient as an automatic weapon.” Stephen King

Sliver, Ira Levin’s chilling tale of psychological suspense, takes readers on a twisted journey of obsession and seduction inside a glittering New York City high-rise.

When successful book editor Kay Norris moves into a high-end “sliver” building on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, little does she realize her every move is being monitored by an intricate system of surveillance cameras watched by a mysterious voyeur. As she delves deeper into the unsettling truth behind this surveillance, Kay becomes entangled in an extremely dangerous game—where nothing is as it seems, and one false move could spell disaster. 

A sinuously erotic thriller, Sliver’s atmospheric setting, “Fabergé egg” construction (Peter Straub), and characters drawn with “a texture and a reality that’s almost eerie” (Stephen King) evoke Levin’s signature bestsellers Rosemary’s Baby and The Stepford Wives, and showcase his unparalleled ability to captivate readers and leave them questioning their sense of security and reality.

Adapted into a major motion picture starring Sharon Stone, Sliver will grip you with its exploration of the darkest depths of human behavior, and the inescapable lure of voyeurism in the digital age.
