A modern murder story with a devilish twist
Master of horror William Sleator has created another creepy, heart-pumping classic in Hell Phone. Nick wants a cell phone so he can talk to his girlfriend, Jen, after school, and the used phone he buys seems like a bargain. That is, until the phone calls begin—demanding, disturbed strangers calling night and day. At first Nick wants to get rid of the phone, but the creepy callers and the phone’s ghoulish games pull him into a web of crime, pushing him to steal, con. . . and kill.
Fans of Sleator’s The Boy Who Couldn’t Die will enjoy this equally diabolical thriller.
