Originally published in the 1950s, at the very beginning of Matheson’s distinguished career, these page-turning classics are finally on audio for your listening pleasure. Now listeners everywhere can savor three unforgettable tales of crime, corruption, and cold-blooded murder.

Someone Is Bleeding

Dave Newton has fallen hard for Peggy, a leggy blonde with a lurid past and a heartbreaking smile. But as bloody corpses begin to litter his path, Dave is forced to confront the terrifying possibility that the woman he loves is a deranged killer.

Fury on Sunday

In the wee hours of a fateful Sunday morning, a homicidal maniac embarks on a rampage of terror and violence that threatens everyone who crosses his path, culminating in a deadly confrontation in a Manhattan apartment building.

Ride the Nightmare

Chris and Helen have the perfect suburban life—until Helen discovers her husband’s guilty secret. Overnight, their peaceful existence descends into a vortex of fear and brutality that may cost them the life of their only child.

Critics Review

  • “His stories not only entertain, but touch the mind and heart.”

    Dean Koontz
  • “Crime fiction at its toughest: booze, guns, knives, chases, aberrant psychology, blackmail, icepick murders, femmes fatales, sinister psychos, brutish thugs, drunks, nymphos, homicide dicks, and a generous helping of sweat.”

    Matthew R. Bradley from the Introduction to Noir
  • “Matheson is the master of paranoia—pitting a single man against unknown horrors and examining his every slow twist in the wind.”

    San Jose Mercury News
  • “In delivering high-tension suspense, Matheson displays an uncanny knack for showing the physical toll fear and desperation take on his characters, grounding them in grim, sweaty-palmed reality.”
