Slippin Into Darkness

by Norman Partridge

Signed Limited Edition - HWA AWARD WINNER!

The clock strikes midnight. Its April 8, 1994, and twenty-four hours of terror begin in a town on the California coast:

12:03 A.M.: In a quiet cemetery, a man throws beer bottles at his lost loves tombstone. Graveyard baseball is the name of the game. The pitcher hasnt thrown a baseball or a bottle since he graduated high school in 1976, but his concentration is perfect, his control unmatched... until someone disturbs the game, and the pitcher explodes in a violent fury.

1:12 A.M.: A secretive photographer climbs the stairs of his basement studio. Shadows drift across the cool green felt of a pool table in his living room. A young woman waits for him in the darkness. She is naked, her skin ghost-white, and her cold laughter stirs memories of a terrible night in 1976.

1:38 A.M.: A wealthy thirty-five-year-old woman leaves her young lovers apartment, thinking of the husband she plans to divorce. Outside she meets a man from her past... a man from 1976 with a camera in his hands and a twisted blackmail scheme in his heart.

3:31 A.M.: A battered pick-up truck bashes through the gates of an abandoned drive-in theater. Five members of the class of ? project an old home movie that hides bitter secrets from the past... secrets that will forever change the future.

So begins Slippin Into Darkness, a wild ride of terror combining the relentless suspense of Thomas Harris, the moody atmosphere of Twin Peaks, and the sad longing of a Bruce Springsteen ballad. But ultimately this book is Norman Partridge, writing with the gloves off, taking horror and suspense in a direction all his own.

Dust jacket and interior artwork by Alan M. Clark, illustrated endpapers, and signed by both Norman Partridge and Alan Clark.

A Signed Limited of 500 copies. This edition features an inscription and signed again by the author. Dated March 14th, 1994.
