"I don't know how Hunter Shea keeps churning out terrifying stories
that feel original, but I want more." - Cedar Hollow Horror Reviews
"Watch out, world, the Wraith is coming for you. As always, Shea
brings the thrills with this urban exploration mystery chiller!"
Megan Hart, New York Times bestseller author "Slash is a slick and
cool slasher movie in book form. It's ridiculously compulsively
readable, and the pages here damn near turn themselves while you
wonder who the Wraith is and what makes him tick. Forget Jason. Say
goodbye to Michael Myers. Give Ghostface a big ol' middle finger.
The Wraith is here!" - High Fever Books "The violence is visceral
and unnerving." - Publishers Weekly "SLASH hearkens back, almost
longingly, to the slasher B-movie horror films of the 1980's, with
its "crazed maniac massacre" settings and especially its "Final
Girl" emphasis." - The Haunted Reading Room
"Shea's latest exemplifies the best of the genre."
