Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dermot Nolan is an international, award-winning, bestselling author who seems to have it all—a successful career, fame, fortune, and a beautiful wife. Dermot seems every bit the literary darling.

And yet, for the last year, he has suffered from a bout of writers block and in the process has grossly overspent his income. So when Dermot comes across an unsolicited horror manuscript stuffed into his mailbox entitled My Worst Nightmares—My Delicious Memoirs, he cannot help but feel intrigued. It tells the story of the twisted, homicidal “Dream Healer” who snares his victims via his website worstnightmares.net, seduces them into revealing their innermost fears, and then kills them by revisiting their very own nightmares upon them. And while Dermot is disgusted by the horror of the manuscript, he is also deeply intrigued, so much so he seeks to solve his writers block by rewriting Arnolds novel as his own.

Sweeping aside the threatening prospect of plagiarism, Dermot begins to rework the novel while simultaneously researching the stories. In his search, he slowly begins to realize that the novel may not be entirely fictional, that these poor characters may have perished at the hands of a twisted torturer. Could the Dream Healer be real? Could these innocent cyber-surfers have fallen victim to a raving maniac? And could Dermot be writing his own ticket to death...his very own worst nightmare?

Synopsis:

After an award-winning author receives an unfinished manuscript in his mail, he very slowly begins to realize that the novel may not be entirely fictional, that the poor characters may have perished at the hands of a twisted torturer.

Synopsis:

An extraordinary debut novel in the horrific tradition of Thomas Harris and Stephen King
