Bedbugs infest the life of a young couple who move into a peculiar brownstone in Brooklyn in Ben H. Winter’s diabolical tale of paranoia and domestic unrest.”—Vanity Fair Hot Type

“All in all, Bedbugs is a solid read, a good thriller, and I guarantee you will have the creepy ‘I need to bleach my pillowcases in hot water’ crawlies for days after.”—DaemonBooks.com

“A rich blend of classic psychological suspense and horror. If Alfred Hitchcock were still with us, this is a book he would adapt to film.”—MonsterLibrarian.com

“Clean and taut with soul-baring inner monologues…Winters delivers prose that delicately piles on the novel’s mounting intensity, using both light humor and doom…Bedbugs gets under our skin with the best of old-fashioned horror and newfangled gore.”—Creative Loafing’s Daily Loaf
