Sliver

A Novel

Ira Levin

A chilling psychological thriller that explores the menacing evil behind the glittering facades of Manhattan’s skyscrapers.

Kay Norris, a successful and lovely book editor, moves into the posh Carnegie Hill district of Manhattan, into an apartment in a slender high-rise. A man watches her. He watches her unpack, watches her make her bed. He owns the building: a shocking secret is concealed within its brick and concrete.

Sliver is a sinuous erotic thriller, a hypnotic story of obsession, suspense, and stunning surprises. It is a novel about the ultimate power, and the temptations the use of that power brings.

Ira Levin is the author of The Boys from Brazil, Rosemary’s Baby, Son of Rosemary, The Stepford Wives, This Perfect Day, Sliver, and A Kiss Before Dying (for which he won the Edgar Award). Levin was also the recipient of three Mystery Writers of America Edgar Allan Poe Awards. His website is iralevin.org.

Endorsements & Reviews

Sliver is the ultimate fin de siecle horror novel, a fiendish good-bye wave to trendy urban living in the last decade of the twentieth century. Mr. Levin has in Sliver created the apartment dweller’s worst nightmare. As always, his characters have a texture and a reality that’s almost eerie, and the narrative is as stripped-down and efficient as an automatic weapon.” Stephen King
“Levin's latest thriller, Sliver, is as successful a page-turner as his first, A Kiss Before Dying, thirty-eight years ago. Ira Levin never gets serious, he just gets better. Grade: A.” Entertainment Weekly
