    "This isn't what I would call his 'best' book, but it's also not bad. That being said, they're all good books for the most part, so what is best will be up to your taste. However, I can definitely say this is worth a read."

    "On of the highest rated Richard Laymon books, Midnight's Lair: A terrifying journey deep underground is worth the read. Long before the "trapped" horror movie genre really took hold, this book was published and some of pointed to it as inspiration for their later work."

    "Richard Laymon writes entertaining horror novels. I don't believe Bite is as good as The Stake. You should read The Stake first."
