Blurb:

HOW MUCH DO YOU HATE?
Eddie Brinkburn’s doing time for a botched garage job that left Sheraton’s brother very badly burned.
HOW MUCH DO YOU HATE?
When Sheraton’s gang burn his wife and kids to death, Eddie soon learns the meaning of hate.
HOW MUCH DO YOU HATE?

And that’s how the prison psycho transfers his awesome power to Eddie. A power that Eddie reckons he can control. A power that will enable Eddie to put the frighteners on Sheraton …

`His strongest story to date … Laws’ leaping talent demands an even greater audience’ – Fear
`A new heir to the horror throne … Laws’ strength lies in building atmosphere, suspense and tension. The Frighteners is unrelenting and a powerhouse of suppressed emotion’ – Starburst
