Ladies’ Night

Ladies' Night TPBxrdCrossroad Press has published a trade paperback edition of Ladies’ Night, “a non-stop rollercoaster ride of sheer nerve rattling terror, previously deemed too violent for mass market publication. In this modern tale of the ages-old battle of the sexes carried to the extreme, Jack Ketchum again provides readers with an excursion into horror as relentless as a John Woo film.”

This one hasn’t been available for a while, and previous editions are pricey on the secondary market. Now’s as good a time as any to pick up a copy.

“In the war between men and women, the shooting has begun.”
