Alex and Susan Wendt are the perfect couple in search of the perfect brownstone-and they find their dream house in the heart of Brooklyn Heights. Sure, the landlady is a little eccentric, and the handyman drops some cryptic remarks about the previous tenants. But the rent is so low, it's too good to pass up!

Big mistake: Susan soon discovers that the brownstone is crawling with bedbugs . . . Or is it? She awakens every morning with fresh bites, but neither Alex nor their daughter Emma has a single welt. Exterminators search the property and turn up nothing. Neighbors insist the building is clean. Susan fears that she's going mad-but as the mysteries deepen, a more sinister explanation presents itself: She may literally be confronting the bedbug problem from hell.

An understated horror story filled with loving references to Rosemary's Baby and other classic tales of urban paranoia, Bedbugs will keep your skin crawling into the wee hours of the night.

Ben H. Winters is the New York Times best-selling author of Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters (Quirk, 2009). His most recent book, the YA novel The Secret Life of Ms. Finkleman (HarperCollins, 2010), was nominated for an Edgar Award.

I'm definitely looking forward to this one. If you have any leftover ARCs, give me a shout, would you? :) Usagi usagiko at gmail dot com

As a huge horror fan, and a resident of Toronto where bed bugs are currently an epidemic I just must read this book! If there are any review copies available please let me know! gwenythlove (at) gmail (dot) com

I would LOVE to book talk this at my library -- we have a huge horror following at my branch, and they are always looking for the newest thrillers. I'd also be super-estatic to receive an ARC, if one is available. Thank you! kkorte (at) kckpl (dot) org

I would love to review this book for my blog. Please email me at melissae_19 at yahoo dot com. Thanks!

Under the link for "VIEW INTERIOR SPREAD", you should add a link "VIEW BED SPREAD" and link to an image of bedding with bedbugs on it. Just for fun.

I can't wait to get my copy to review! Thanks, SusieQTpies Scraps of Life

I love this book so far it is scary
