In The Dark - Richard Laymon *****Jane is a librarian, one night as she prepares to close up she finds and envelope with a $50 bill and a note with a clue. She follows up on the clue and finds $100 dollars with a further offer of doubling her money each time she completes a task. The note is signed MOG (Master of Games). Each task gets more and more scary to complete, expect graveyards, late nights and death. :)I have read a few Laymon novels and this one doesn't fail to live up to his legacy to shock. I think most of his books are male orientated with their fair share of jiggling boobs and bums. I just love them. I've not read the Beast house trilogy yet, but this book would seem an ideal place to start for fans new to his work.

Finished this book last night. Wow what a difference with the last book I read. This one I could not stop reading and it kept me thinking about it even when I could not read.<br/><br/>My dad gave me about 5 books by Richard Laymon. This is the first book I have read by him and I loved it. So original. I love the toughness, the gore, the sex. lol. Okay sometimes the story was a a bit like "A girl would never do that, but all in all I really loved reading it. <br/><br/>I picked this book because it had the best reviews out of the books i had.<br/>Already reading another Richard Laymon book. And he has written so many books. I am thrilled to explore more.
