A peaceful camping trip turns into the stuff of nightmares…

Dark Mountain is another terrifying horror classic from Master of the Macabre, Richard Laymon. Perfect for fans of Joe Hill and Stephen King.

It was supposed to be a peaceful escape for the two families camping high in the Californian mountains. But they made the mistake of camping at Mesquite Lake, home to two of the wilderness’s most terrifying inhabitants: an aged hag with gruesome powers and her depraved son whose unnatural lusts even she cannot control…

What readers are saying about Dark Mountain:

‘The minute I opened this book I was addicted. It contained everything I wanted from a horror story

‘If you like stories that are full of fear, romance, human emotion and violence you will love this one. This is vintage Laymon, and a must for all horror/thriller readers’

A terrifyingly dark story. A can’t put down read, with an excellent plot and a surprise finish’


Praise for Richard Laymon: 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
