This excellent novel features just what may be the most quietly chilling bad guy I've ever encountered in a book. I can't recommend this title highly enough.

On a side note, NOTH also contains one of my favorite quotes from a book, when Rachel Cooper opines, "It's a hard world for little things."

I usually don't recommend movies that have been inspired by books, but the 1955 classic starring Robert Mitchum is a keeper. If you enjoyed the book, be sure to rent it.
