Trapped underground, how will they escape?

Midnight’s Lair is a terrifying journey into evil by the highly acclaimed Richard Laymon. Perfect for fans of Stephen King and Dean Koontz.

Mordocks’s cave is one of the wonders of the world: a place where, every year, thousands of sightseers go deep beneath the earth’s surface to marvel at Nature’s handiwork. But it’s also home to things Nature never intended – violent, evil things. And when a power failure traps a group of tourists underground, the creatures emerge from the darkness…

What readers are saying about Midnight’s Lair:

‘Written with Laymon’s usual fast-paced, action packed, no-holds-barred style of writing, you’ll find the novel difficult to put down at any point, with the next horrifying event just around the corner’

‘This is 253 pages of pure splatterpunk heaven, delivering classic Laymon horror with a no-holds-barred approach and a reflection of his truly twisted imagination. Absolutely great stuff!

‘The pace is frenetic, the characters are both endearing and repulsive, and the gratuitous violence is almost non-stop. Never have I read a book that could leave me slack jawed with horror and something akin to awe


Praise for Richard Laymon: In Laymon's books, blood doesn't so much as drip as explode, splatter and coagulate
