Description
							Aspiring model Allison Parker finally moves into her dream apartment: a brownstone on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. But her perfect home quickly turns hellish. The building is filled with a cast of sinister tenants, including a reclusive blind priest, who seems to watch her day and night through an upstairs window. Eventually, Allison starts hearing strange noises from the  empty apartment above hers. Before long, she uncovers the building’s demonic secret and is plunged into a nightmare of sinful misdeeds and boundless evil. In the tradition of Rosemary’s Baby, this gripping novel was adapted into a feature film starring Ava Gardner, Cristina Raines, and Chris Sarandon. The Sentinel is classic horror at its best.
Reviews

"The mystery mounts inexorably until the truth emerges rationally but savagely. It would mar the sanctity of the plot to divulge more than the fact that it implicates religious fanatics...Mr. Konvitz has a keen sense of sophisticated terror.” - Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Konvitz has written more than a novel...it appeals to anyone concerned with good and evil." - Los Angeles Herald Examiner

"A New York based suspense story with a lovely young heroine...a sinister upper west side brownstone, lots of Roman Catholic-cum-Milton-plus Dante mysticism and some absolutely hair-raising sequences." - Cue Magazine
