The night promises more than one encounter for Sherry…

In Come Out Tonight, Richard Laymon writes a chilling horror story full of suspense, dark humour and a deadly killer. Perfect for fans of Stephen King and Dean Koontz.

‘A grisly cocktail of horror, murder and mayhem laced with Laymon’s distinct blend of black humour. Great stuff’ – Yorkshire Evening Press

Sherry’s getting nervous. When Duane left for the 24-hour Speed-D-Mart, he said he’d be back in ten minutes. But that was twenty minutes ago, and that store isn’t someplace you’d generally want to go at this time of night. Then Sherry hears a noise from up the street. It could have been a car door slamming. Or a backfire. But it sounded like a gunshot.

Sherry tells herself she has nothing to worry about. Still, she puts on her clothes and heads out into the night. She’s afraid of what she’ll find, but she has no idea of what’s really in store for her. If she did, she would never have left the safety of her home. And she never would have met a madman named Toby Bones…

What readers are saying about Come Out Tonight:

‘It will have you gripped from start to finish and you won’t want to put it down. The excitement and tension is out of this world

Sheer brilliance. The way the story keeps twisting and turning kept me turning the pages so fast I left scorch marks’

Five stars
