Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The best horror novel of the new century.”  Stephen King
The Ruins is superior horror literature…It leaves you with the sense that the skeleton beneath your skin is closer to the surface than you think.”  New York Times
“A tour de force of terror, a novel that seduces, shocks, and dares you to keep reading—and never relents, not even on its final page.”  Washington Post Book World
“You won’t be able to put it down until you find out how everything ends. The pleasure of this novel lies in not know what will happen next, or why. This story is a holiday in hell. It’s very hard to escape.”  San Francisco Chronicle
