Sliver is the ultimate fin de siecle horror novel, a fiendish goodbye 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)
Levin's thriller, Sliver, is as successful a page-turner as his first, A Kiss Before Dying...Ira Levin never gets serious, he just gets better. Grade A. (Entertainment Weekly) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
A sinuous, erotic thriller about obsession and the temptation of ultimate power --This text refers to the Paperback edition.See all Product Description

The plot is pretty basic. A woman moves into a "sliver" (a high rise built on a narrow plot) where there have been a few suspicious deaths. The mysterious owner has cameras in all the apartments and taps on all the phones (letting him see a "sliver" of people's lives ... especially the "interesting" bits). There are still some surprises to be had though, and Levin pulls it off well.
