Peter Straub masterfully weaves horror and suspense into a love story unlike any other: The Ballad of Ballard and Sandrine. Ballard and his considerably younger lover, Sandrine, have been brought together by a shared erotic obsession of the darkest kind.

Through a haze of pain and pleasure, the lovers are witness to a series of increasingly sinister portents, dreams and visions that haunt their claustrophobic and disturbing world. With Peter Straub's signature, breathtaking twists and an astonishing climax, you'll never forget The Ballad of Ballard and Sandrine. ©2012 Peter Straub (P)2012 Random House Audio
