Product Overview

"All the right scares in all the right places." The Seattle Times
A telephone rings in the dead of night with shocking news for single mother MaryAnne Carpenter: her friends the Wilkensons are suddenly, inexplicably dead, their only child, Joey, a sad and silent adolescent and MaryAnne's godchild, abruptly orphaned. But as MaryAnne rushes with her family to the Wilkenson's ranch to embrace her young charge, disturbing questions mount. Was it an accident that killed her friends? Or murder?
Now, as winter transforms the ranch into a place of blinding, dangerous storms, a series of horrific murders, killings that suggest a raging animal and defy solution by the local police, draw ever closer to MaryAnne and her young family.

Author Info
John Saul
After graduating from high school in 1959, John Saul went to Antioch College. Six years, four colleges, and at least three different majors later, he abandoned notions of higher education and decided that he would become a writer. He worked a series of temporary jobs while sending multiple manuscripts to various publishers until 1976, when an outline for a novel--his first flirtation with the horror genre--was met with approval at Dell Publishing. The resulting novel, SUFFER THE CHILDREN, one of the first paperbacks to be advertised on television, became an enormous bestseller, though the book was roundly disliked by critics, who were disturbed by its depictions of violence by and against children. This criticism of his work has followed him, as many of his books feature children and teenagers as main characters. Nevertheless, Saul's subsequent books--written on an average of one per year since 1977--have consistently been bestsellers. In addition to his novels, Saul has written for the stage, as well as lecturing at various writer conferences.
Praise
"As usual, Saul tells a tale of terrors that seem to be supernatural but turn out to be the fault of evil science."
From the Publisher

She soon discovers that a series of brutal murders have been taking place in the area and that many of the townspeople seem to have an aversion to her godson.
