What do you do when a vampire comes knocking?

Bite is a thrilling adventure of horror, vampires and old flames, from the master of the macabre Richard Laymon. Perfect for fans of Stephen King and Joe Hill.

When Sam’s ex-girlfriend Cat arrives at his door, he can’t believe his eyes. It’s been a long time, but he’s never forgotten her. But before the night is over, Cat will be lying face down on the bed, acting as bait, and Sam will be hiding in the wardrobe with a hammer in one hard and a wooden stake in the other. They won’t have long to wait. The vampire is coming.

What readers are saying about Bite:

‘I can honestly say that this book is brilliant, nay, a masterpiece… You can really hear, smell and feel everything that is happening. Laymon writes characters that are among the most believable, three-dimensional and exciting ever written’

Very addictive and suspenseful with a generous portion of Laymon’s usual sense of humour

Bite is pure Laymon – great characters, a terrific storyline and a surprising ending


In Laymon's books, blood doesn't so much as drip as explode, splatter and coagulate
No one writes like Laymon and you're going to have a good time with anything he writes
