Kay Norris, a successful single woman of thirty-nine, moves into the posh Carnegie Hill district of Manhattan's Upper East Side, into an apartment in a slender high rise, a "sliver" building.
A man watches her. He watches her unpack, watches her make her bed. He owns the building; a shocking secret is concealed within its brick and concrete. Sliver is a hypnotic story of obsession, suspense, and stunning surprises. It is a novel about ultimate power, and the temptations the use of that power brings.
With ice cold precision, Levin, the author of Rosemary's Baby and The Stepford Wives, creates a mesmerizing story that culminates in a scene of electrifying suspense.
