Three Complete Novels: Psycho, Psycho II, Psycho House
Robert Bloch has been hailed as "the finest psychological horror writer working today" by fellow bestselling author and master of the macabre, Stephen King. And the Washington Post declared Robert Bloch a writer who has "etched [his] name permanently in the horror hall of fame."
Bestselling author Robert Bloch is famed as the creator of that great American horror classic, Psycho, the inspiration for the spine-tingling motion picture. He continued the story of Norman Bates and the Bates Motel -- where Death is the desk clerk -- in Psycho II and then Psycho House. Now, for the first time, all three suspense thrillers appear in one hardcover volume.
When the Bates Motel loomed up out of the storm, Mary Crane thought it was her salvation. The rooms were musty but clean, and the manager, Norman Bates, seemed like a nice enough fellow, if a little strange... Then Mary met Norman's mother... And the butcher knife... The nightmare had just begun.
Dr. Adam Claiborne thought Norman Bates was on the road to recovery -- until Norman killed a young nun and escaped from the asylum dressed in her habit. Now the psychiatrist and former patient are engaged in a desperate -- and deadly -- game of cat and mouse. Claiborne knows that Norman will head for Hollywood, where a movie based on the Bates Motel murders is underway. But no actor can portray Norman Bates and Norman Bates himself will see to that...
The fully-restored Bates Motel, a recreation of the infamous murder site -- complete with robot copies of Norman Bates and his lovely mother -- is about to become Texas's newest tourist attraction. Right before opening day, there's an unplanned addition to the exhibits... a bloody corpse is found in the front hall. Was the death a publicity stunt? Or has the madness that claimed Norman Bates returned to his home for another killing spree?
