“Shea’s latest exemplifies the best of the genre." Booklist Starred Review
Five years after Ashley King survived the infamous Resort Massacre, she’s found hanging in her basement by her fiancé, Todd Matthews. She left behind clues as to what really happened that night, clues that may reveal the identity of the killer the press has called The Wraith. With the help of his friends, Todd goes back to the crumbling Hayden Resort, a death-tinged ruin in the Catskills Mountains. What they find is a haunted history that’s been lying in wait for a fresh set of victims. The Wraith is back, and he’s nothing what they expected.

– Cedar Hollow Horror Reviews
"Shea’s latest exemplifies the best of the genre."
“Watch out, world, the Wraith is coming for you. As always, Shea brings the thrills with this urban exploration mystery chiller!”
– Megan Hart, New York Times bestseller author
"Slash is a slick and cool slasher movie in book form. It’s ridiculously compulsively readable, and the pages here damn near turn themselves while you wonder who the Wraith is and what makes him tick. Forget Jason. Say goodbye to Michael Myers. Give Ghostface a big ol’ middle finger. The Wraith is here!"
– High fever Books
"The violence is visceral and unnerving."
– Publishers Weekly
"SLASH hearkens back, almost longingly, to the slasher B-movie horror films of the 1980's, with its "crazed maniac massacre" settings and especially its "Final Girl" emphasis."
