They think they’re getting lucky.
They’re dead wrong.

Detective Joe Williams has seen all kinds of murder scenes. Some brutal, some gory, all disturbing and horrific in their way. Nothing could have prepared him for what’s waiting in Apartment 413. A man—what’s left of him—lying in a pool of his own blood, his face frozen in a silent scream.

That’s just the first. Soon there are more victims, all male, all mutilated, seeming to have little in common except an agonizing death by castration.  All of them went looking for pleasure. Instead they found a killer wreaking vengeance in the most bloodthirsty way. And the only clue Joe has found is a tiny, gleaming metal tooth…

Edo Van Belkom—winner of the Bram Stoker and Aurora Awards—delves into the heart of man’s most primal fear in a shocking, suspenseful, terrifying novel that bites down hard…and won’t let go.

“one of 2001′s best horror novels” – Science Fiction Chronicle

“TEETH works on several levels: as an over-the-edge contemporary horror novel, as a police procedural, and as a thriller. Edo van Belkom’s mastery of the art of storytelling is brought to bear on this unforgettable novel. It’s about as far over the edge as a horror book can get, and the big boys were all too timid to take it. Still, I expect it to knock people’s socks off, the way Stephen King’s CARRIE did. From its unforgettable opening scene to its last page, TEETH will haunt you for the rest of your life; you will be mesmerized, repelled, and thrilled. Van Belkom already has one Bram Stoker Award; I expect TEETH to earn him his second — as well as the large readership he so richly deserves. Buy it.”
–Robert J. Sawyer, winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards

“One of the best that I have read in a very long time. This award-winner Canadian novelist will not disappoint you.”
–Naomi de Bruyn, RAMBLES

From Publishers Weekly

May 28, 2001 – The best part of this lurid horror novel from Canadian van Belkom is the prologue, originally a short story, set on a hot, smelly, graffiti-covered subway train in a pre-Giuliani New York City. An unnamed woman, apparently suffering badly from her period, can't wait to get home to Brooklyn. In a climactic twist so shocking it's almost funny, it turns out she has an anatomical anomaly an extra set of teeth located in a part of the body ordinarily devoted to more intimate functions than eating. In extending this idea to novel length the author betrays its limits. Two years later, Joe Williams, an earnest, if plodding, Toronto detective, chases hopelessly after a brutal killer whose victims tend to be despicable rapists, until aided by the long arm of improbable coincidence. A subplot involving the fate of Williams's overly independent daughter doesn't stray from its predictable path, while the delayed revelation of the remarkably equipped killer's identity is embarrassingly unconvincing. Flat writing and characterization on top of crudely exaggerated male and female sexual polarities don't win van Belkom any prizes for style or subtlety. This book will titillate young readers eager for sensation and will repel their elders, who should know better but may not. After all, several horror notables, including the late Richard Laymon (who contributes an enthusiastic introduction), supply ringing endorsements. and has been nominated for the Arthur Ellis Award by the Crime Writers of Canada.
