    Peter Straub, an American icon of horror, explores the deepest, shadow-filled corners of his imagination. Straub's world is made up of damaged people--from the righteous to the depraved, from the working class to the wealthy.
    No one and no place is safe from the darkness that he reveals. In -Blue Rose, - an adolescent sociopath inflicts secret violence on his younger brother; in -Mr Clubb and Mr. Cuff, - a stern estate lawyer hires a pair of -Private Detectives Extraordinaire- to investigate and seek revenge on his unfaithful wife; and in -The Ballad of Ballard and Sandrine, - a man and his much younger lover explore their decadent and increasingly sinister fantasies aboard a luxurious yacht on the remotest stretch of the Amazon River. Interior Darkness is a thrilling and terrifying testament to Straub's unparalleled contribution to the world of horror.
