A Novel by Brian Harper

SHIVER is an exciting and terrifying thriller based on the highly praised novel by acclaimed author, Brian Harper. It has been characterized as the best “woman in jeopardy” - “female empowerment” material since Audrey Hepburn in “Wait Until Dark”.  A republication of the SHIVER novel as a film-novelization tie-in is planned once the film is announced for production.


A great book, extremely well written, exciting, entertaining! Brian Harper is the best at his genre by far. SHIVER has pace, plot, depth, style, builds tension. It's the top 1 or 2 of my favorite books. Of the popular authors, I've read, J. Patterson, Koontz, Grisham, Sanders, etc. - Harper is the most polished by far. 'Shiver' has style, gets your heart really racing. The characters have depth and they're believable. Wendy's heroics are  great.  I'd give it an 11 if I could.


Edge of your seat action. Takes you inside the mind of killer and victim. It gives you a great sense of "being there". Definitely a good read.

A great book! Draws you in from page one! What follows will keep even the most restless reader on the edge of their seat. A realistic, thrilling novel - a definite "don't miss" for suspense fans.
