A chilling psychological thriller that explores the menacing evil behind the glittering façades 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. He watches her make her bed. He owns the building—and 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • Sliver is the ultimate fin de siècle 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.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “Fast-moving…[with] a slam-bang finale.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • A New York Times Bestseller

    " I really interesting and kind of scary book. Makes yoy paranoid of cameras being placed in your house, but other than that it's a lovely book. "

    " Pretty good, considering the topic: unauthorized surveillance. Not as good as Levin's other work that I've read but thought provoking nonetheless. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Gregor Xane | 1/31/2014

    " Crisp writing. Good pacing. Some hokey dialogue. An ending that is almost laughable. An interesting premise that is not taken far enough. "
