Kelly Lawrence | 5 comments The book I'm looking for is about a man and his pregnant girlfriend, they were living in (and renovating, I think) an abandoned theater. It may have been an abandoned hotel, but I'm pretty sure it was a theater. A faceless creature also lived in the theater, and after the woman gave birth it tried to take her baby. I think the story takes place in Chicago. The cover had a faceless creature on it, very Silent Hill-ish.


I may have some details wrong, it's been about 12 or 13 years since I've read it. I'm dying to get my hands on it again. Some one please help!

Kelly--what made your pick up that particular book and read it? Was it recommended to you by a friend? A librarian, was it on the Our Staff Recommends shelf in a bookstore or the library? Did you see a review of it? Or were you in a rush and just grabbed the closest book to hand?

Where did you find the book--bookstore, thrift/charity shop, grocers, drugstore/chemists?

The book was an impulse buy at a grocery store, of all places. I wish it had been recommended by someone, maybe that would have made it easier to find.

Kelly Lawrence | 5 comments I figured out what the book was! It was In This Skin by Simon Clark. Apparently I was wrong about it being a theater, it was an abandoned dance hall.
