Synopsis

Ramsey Campbell has been hailed as a master of the psychological novel; his ability to convey the twists and turns of the human mind is unparalleled in modern fiction.  Through the struggles, failures, and triumphs of Campbell's characters, we see the best and the worst of the human race.  In Nazareth Hill, Campbell focuses on a small, highly dysfunctional family--a teenage girl and her father.   The emotional turmoil of the girl's adolescence is matched by her father's midlife crisis, and as the novel unfolds, it becomes clear that this battle is only one stage in a centuries-old war between authority and rebellion, suspicion and innocence.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.
