Afraid to Death

Afraid to Death by Marc Behm

Afraid to Death

A cult classic, Afraid to Death is a chilling psychological thriller with a hallucinogenic quality.

Joe Egan is on the run. A mysterious blonde appears to him whenever someone close to him dies. He lives his life in fear of her, but at the same time develops a strange fascination with her.

Who is the blonde woman? Is she a figment of his imagination, the angel of death, or even the devil incarnate?

'A terrific American novelist…Afraid to Death is a fascinating mirror image to Eye of the Beholder’ Maxim Jablowski, The Guardian
