A night of terror awaits…

After Midnight is a thrilling horror novel from Richard Laymon, in which a plucky heroine must use every ounce of her ingenuity to survive. Perfect for fans of Dean Koontz and Clive Barker.


Alice enjoys house-sitting for her friend; she has the place to herself, a huge TV, a swimming pool. But one night, just after midnight, a man walks out of the woods and throws himself into the pool. Alice knows about men, so she fetches the Civil War relic that hangs on the wall: an old cavalry sabre…

What readers are saying about After Midnight:

‘Laymon’s books are either brilliantly original, or twisted journeys to a very dark place…or perhaps both….’

‘I loved this book from the get-go, it had me gripped and I had it finished in two days flat. It has turns and twists that will blow your mind

After Midnight is undoubtedly [Laymon’s] best
