THE DEVIL IN SILVER by Victor LaValle is a frightening novel. It is not frightening in the sense that things jump out at the poor souls who populate the book, though there is a touch of that within its pages. What makes it such an unsettling, wild night’s ride is the manner in which things slowly fall apart, and then further deteriorate once the pieces hit the ground.
"Anyone who has found themselves suddenly and inexplicably at non-liberty in an institutional setting will find their flesh quietly crawling as they read THE DEVIL IN SILVER. And so will everyone else. This is as frightening a book as you are likely to read this year.&qu
