The Intruder

The Intruder

March 26, 2024

Dark circumstances arrive in Peter Blauner’s New York Times bestselling blockbuster novel, The Intruder, with a foreword by the author exclusive to this new edition. 

What would a good man do to protect his family? How far will he go and how far is too far?

Jake Schiff is a successful New York lawyer trying to do right by his family. John Gates is a mentally disturbed man barely surviving on the streets. Their worlds collide violently when Jake’s wife Dana tries to help John as a psychiatric patient. John decides that Jake has somehow usurped the life that was meant for him. He begins showing up outside the Schiffs’ house and demanding his family back. Suddenly everything is called into question. Including the matter of who the real intruder is. The Intruder is a tale of two lives, two cities, and how fate can quickly turn and go from saving lives to completely destroying them. 

Praise for The Intruder

“Un-putdownable! My advice is to read this book.”

“The best novel I’ve read in years. It has great characters, a great story, a great heart. If you want comparisons, I can’t give you any. There aren’t any. I think Peter Blauner is better than Grisham, better than Patricia Cornwell. I loved The Intruder! Loved, loved, loved it.”

“An excellent book.”

“Gripping… convincing… richly imagined… A harrowing, compelling read.”

“More than a story about a man protecting his family. It’s about a man losing faith—in love, God, and humanity—and the possibility of regaining it.”

“Chilling…Will keep pulsing in readers’ minds long after the book is safely
back on the shelf.”

“Uncomplicated, irresistible melodrama.”
— KIRKUS REVIEWS, starred review

“A tour de force.”
— PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, starred review

“Brilliant…A virtuoso performance.”

“The Intruder might be the best novel about the paranoia of living in New York ever written…One of the best pure-New York novels in years.”

“Deft…nuanced…Blauner harnesses his astute take on the city to a solid
thriller…The Intruder possesses energy and a real zest for the city.”

“A knockout.”

American Narcissus

May 2024

The American dream is dead, and Los Angeles is burning. Hopeless and anesthetized, four lost souls contend with the darkest elements of the human experience in a desperate attempt to quench their thirst for meaning and connection in a world without a future. For Arden Coover, a spun-out acid junkie with the ink still drying on a useless philosophy degree from Berkeley, it’s in the potential salvation offered by a new relationship rife with promise but fraught with uncertainty. His fresh-out-of-high-school sister, Tess, is struggling to accept that her best option in life may lie in a convenient but loveless marriage to a rich, narcissistic novelist. Ryland Richter, an alcoholic insurance executive with too much money and too few scruples, seeks toxic solace in the arms of a dangerously unhinged subordinate. And Baxter Kent, a stoned surfer who’s addicted to AI pornography and afraid of women, tries to make things work with a prototypal sex robot that’s incapable of even the most rudimentary forms of communication. From the acclaimed and controversial author of Dead Inside and I.

Chandler Morrison is the author of seven previous books, including #thighgap and Dead Inside. His short fiction has appeared in numerous anthologies and literary journals. He lives in Los Angeles.

October 2024

It’s the hottest summer ever in Chicago history, and homicide detective Donnie Branson is trying to keep his cool as his personal life crumbles and he searches for an elusive killer who has slaughtered a homicide witness. Chicago Outfit boss, Tico “The Meatgrinder” Tortellio, has emerged from the safe cocoon of his mob world, craving to get his hands dirty. His grisly mission: to destroy the fiend who raped his comatose daughter in a local hospital. That fiend is Derek Hoffman, a steroid-abusing-sociopath whose body and mind have been grotesquely transformed after his participation in a clinical trial for an experimental ED-arousal-drug called, LIBIDONAL. Overdosing on the drug, Hoffman has become a raging beast, high on lust and blood. A pharmaceutically-created monster, he roams the steamy city, leaving unspeakable terror and carnage in his wake. Soon the race is on as both Branson and Tortellio hunt for Hoffman, each man bent on finding Hoffman first to deliver his own brand of justice. But who can take Hoffman down if they do find him?
