A chilling psychological thriller that explores the menacing evil behind the glittering facades of Manhattan s skyscrapers.
From the Publisher:
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.
Author Bio
Ira Levin
Ira Levin is a rare example of an author whose work is almost equally well-known in three separate mediums: theater, fiction, and film. Levin knew at an early age that he wanted to be a writer. He attended Drake University in Iowa for two years, before transferring to New York University and graduating in 1950. In 1953 he was drafted into the Army, where he the work he performed writing training films served to introduce him to the film medium. That same year, his first novel was published as A KISS BEFORE DYING. Throughout this period he wrote plays, his first great success coming in 1960 with CRITIC'S CHOICE, a production starring Henry Fonda. His most well-known play is probably DEATHTRAP, a complex story of double-crosses that was made into a film starring Christopher Reeve and Michael Caine. Other plays by Levin such as NO TIME FOR SERGEANTS and DOCTOR COOK'S GARDEN were also well-received. Most of his novels, including THE STEPFORD WIVES, THE BOYS FROM BRAZIL, and SLIVER, have been adapted for the screen, but the most famous is certainly ROSEMARY'S BABY. Written in 1967, it is an important work in the pantheon of horror fiction as it was largely responsible for introducing modern notions of the Devil into popular fiction. In 1997, Levin wrote a sequel, SON OF ROSEMARY which revisits some of the earlier novel's themes of perception vs. reality. Though he is not very prolific, Levin has earned a firm place in the public's consciousness through his extremely popular and gripping fiction.
