Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Library Journal:

Woody has come from America to England to manage a new branch of Texts, a book megastore. At first, only small things seem to go wrong: machinery malfunctions, books are misplaced, and the ubiquitous fog seems to seep into workday communications. When a staff member dies from a hit-and-run accident and another loses the ability to read, events take a more sinister turn, culminating in an overnight stock party to prepare the store for its visiting owners-or to bring everyone together for an evening of terror. The prolific Campbell excels in displaying the horror of the everyday. His slice-of-life characters and fast-paced plotting give a cinematic feel to this tale of modern terror. For most horror collections. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
