About the Author

Saul has several major themes in his horror fiction; children as victims, and sometimes perpetrators, of evil; technology used for horrific ends; and occult occurrences (is it something external or internal that causes the horrible things to happen to his characters?). While Saul's earlier work has mostrar mais been noted for its extremely gruesome quality, in his later writing Saul is trying to restrain that aspect of his fiction. Often his plots revolve around hidden, secret evil that is discovered by an innocent person, who must then battle against seemingly impossible odds to defeat the demon. (Bowker Author Biography) Author John Saul was born in Pasadena, California on February 25, 1942. He attended numerous colleges including Montana State University and San Francisco State College and majored in various areas of study including anthropology, liberal arts, and theater, but never earned a degree. He spent the next fifteen years attempting to become a published writer while working various jobs. His first novel, Suffer the Children, was published in 1977. He has written over twenty novels since then and writes the Blackstone Chronicles. He received the Life Time Achievement Award from the Northwest Writers Conference. He currently divides his time between Seattle, Washington and Maui, Hawaii. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

MaryAnne Carpenter gets a phone call informing her that her good friend Audrey Wilkenson and her husband Ted are dead. MaryAnne has been named the guardian of their only son, Joey. So MaryAnne travels to the Wilkenson’s ranch home in Sugarloaf, Idaho, with her two young children (Logan and Alison) and her husband, Alan. MaryAnne is having trouble with Joey, who goes out a lot at night in the forest. Then, some campers are brutally murdered. Sometimes MaryAnne feels like they are being watched. Should she stay at the ranch or go back home? This story was interesting and captivating at times, but I just didn’t enjoy this book as much as other books I’ve read by this author.

A haunted Catholic school filled with infernal agendas, double crosses (pun intended), secret identities, and a diabolical plot that stretches all the way to The Vatican! What's not to like? Plenty, actually, but if you can get past the eye-rolling plot twists and cartoonish sense of malice this is an addictive read at least until the final pages where it all seems to fall apart in a rushed jumble of "WTF?" moments which leave too many dangling threads in their wake.
