From the Desk of Rick Chesler

Dear Readers,

This is a quick note to let you know about my latest novel release, a coauthored horror story with supernatural elements.

THE FLAT by Jack Douglas and Rick Chesler


When a troubled young American couple leases a flat in Portugal, they hope to rekindle lost feelings for one another in an exotic new setting far removed from reminders of their past. But as the first hours in their new surroundings unfold, it quickly becomes apparent that their stay in the flat will be anything but relaxing. Something haunts the unit, and now it’s haunting them, shutting them off from the outside world at the same time it turns the lovers against one another in the most brutal of ways.

As they struggle to find a way out of a living hell, with its multitude of unforgiving horrors, the two finally come to realize they can't escape themselves. And that no one leaves THE FLAT.




“The perfect combination of great research and impossible to put down writing." -- Jeremy Robinson [on THE YETI: A Novel by Rick Chesler and Jack Douglas], international bestselling author of APOCALYPSE MACHINE and PROJECT NEMESIS


“This is the sort of reading that I just can't put down. Will keep you spell-bound to the very end.” –Reader review on QUAKE by Jack Douglas
