Kay Norris, a successful single woman of thirty-nine, moves into the posh Carnegie Hill district of Manhattan's Upper East Side, into an apartment in a slender high-rise, a "sliver" building. A man watches her. He watches her unpack, watches her make her bed. He owns the building; a shocking secret is concealed within its brick and concrete. Sliver is a sinuous erotic thriller, a hypnotic story of obsession, suspense and stunning surprises. It is a novel about ultimate power, adn the temptations the use of that power brings. With the ice-cold precision of a master of high-tension drama, Ira Levin has created a mesmerizing story that culminates in a scene of electrifying suspense to rival any he has ever written

"'Let's get down to business now, boys.' Tipping his cropped gray head, he lowered his glasses and looked at the men. They faced him attentively, cigars poised. Silence took the room. 'You know what you're going to do, ' the man in white said. 'Ninety-four men have to die on or near certain dates in the next two and a half years ... Their deaths are the final step in an operation to which I and the leaders of the Organization have devoted many years ... The hope and the destiny of the Aryan race lie in the balance.'" Thus opens Ira Levin's masterful novel. Why have these harmless aging men been marked for murder? What is the hidden link that binds them? What interest can they possibly hold for their killers: six former SS men dispatched from South America by the most wanted Nazi still alive, the notorious "Angel of Death"? One man alone must answer these questions and stop the killings--Nazi-hunter Yakov Liebermann
