Scary in Print, Too

If you enjoy horror thrillers, you should read the novel (based on a real life criminal case) that spawned Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece.

MPL Book Trailer #173
Psycho, by Robert Bloch

We thought the MPL Composer's "Flight of Fear" was especially well-suited as our book trailer's music soundtrack. 

Hitchcock's Psycho is the scariest motion picture ever made, but the terror derives directly from Bloch's treatment of a psychologically unbalanced motel owner and his split personality. I'm sure that nobody needs a "spoiler alert" for this--who hasn't seen the movie?--but I suspect few of my readers have actually read Bloch's book. Evergreen Indiana cardholders may check it out by placing a hold using the E.I. online catalog.
