Disquiet is, without a doubt, the absolute creepiest non-supernatural book I have ever read.  Hooray!

Product Details

Fans of horror tend to get a bit jaded.  It takes more and more to impress us.  Yet this itty-bitty book acted on my system like a bee’s stinger – just as tiny and just as potent.  Its measured pace and refined setting serve to deliver the dreadful stuff all the more effectively.

I hesitate to admit that I enjoyed this book as much as I did – and when you read it, you’ll understand why – but it was stunning.  I’m going to look for Julia Leigh’s previous book, The Hunter, and wait eagerly for her next offering.
