This is everything you could ever want from great serial horror. I remember my sister-in-law reading 10 pages every night before she went to bed, and having to watch a Disney movie just so she could sleep. This book rules!

i've read lots of his books. The serial concept totally messed him up. Take my Stephen Kings instead.

Just finished the Blackstone Chronicles - all the 6 parts. I'm sad that it's over! If you like thrillers that keep you wondering what is going on, what kind of evil is lurking, you will not be able to put it down. John Saul did a wonderful job of developing the different characters you encounter...
