Sliver is the ultimate fin de siecle horror novel, a fiendish good-bye wave to trendy urban living in the last decade of the twentieth century. Mr. Levin has in Sliver created the apartment dweller's worst nightmare. As always, his characters have a texture and a reality that's almost eerie, and the narrative is as stripped-down and efficient as an automatic weapon.--Stephen King
