About Book

Those who have read Williams's earlier novels will not want to be told anything about Descent into Hell except that it is one of his best. Those who do not know the author's work will find that when they have read this novel, they will want to read all the others. Highly acclaimed writer of the thriller with a supernatural element, Williams's novels can be read for pure excitement. However, there is also a comedy of manners and acute analysis of human relationships, and finally, exploration of abysses of beauty and horror beyond the borders of the material world. This book, as the title may suggest, is not recommended reading for hyper-sensitive people alone at night in an empty house.
