From Daniel Kraus, the New York Times bestselling co-author of Academy Award-winning Best Picture The Shape of Water, comes Blood Sugar, the blood-curdling story of a Halloween where trick-or-treat becomes life or death... "A hard kick in the shins you never saw coming... And wow, is it fun to read" - LitReactor Best of 2019 Pick WHEN TRICK OR TREAT BECOMES LIFE OR DEATH From the dark imagination of bestselling novelist Daniel Kraus - co-author with Guillermo del Toro of THE SHAPE OF WATER - comes a Halloween crime story that's like nothing you've ever read before. In a ruined house at the end of Yellow Street, an angry outcast hatches a scheme to take revenge for all the wrongs he has suffered. With the help of three alienated kids, he plans to hide razor blades, poison, and broken glass in Halloween candy, maiming or killing dozens of innocent children. But as the clock ticks closer to sundown, will one of his helpers - an innocent himself, in his own streetwise way - carry out or defeat the plan? Told from the child's point of view, in a voice as unforgettable as A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, Kraus' novel is at once frightening and emotional, thought-provoking and laugh-out-loud funny. It'll make you rethink your concepts of family, loyalty, and justice - and will leave you double-checking the wrappers on your Halloween candy for the rest of your days.

"I never miss a book by the remarkable Daniel Kraus and Blood Sugar exceeds all expectation. A Stephen King tale told by a pidgin Artful Dodger, it's a twisted little miracle with a sneaking, beating heart." -- Megan Abbott
