For five years Seattle journalist Anne Jeffers has pursued the horrifying story of a sadistic serial killer's bloody reign, capture, trial, and appeal - crusading to keep the wheels of justice churning toward the electric chair. Now the day of execution has come. A convicted killer will meet his end. Anne believes her long nightmare is over. But she's dead wrong. . . . Within days, a similar murder stuns the city. As the butcher stalks his next victims, creeping ever closer to her, Anne is seized by an icy unease, a haunting sense of connection to these unspeakable crimes. And, relentlessly, she hears the eerie echo of the dead man's last words to her: “Today won't end it. How will you feel, Anne? When I'm dead, and it all starts again, how will you feel?” Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " John Saul has become one of my all-time favorite authors, and this was the first book that got me into him. He comes up with riveting (albeit peculiar) plots and twists, and he focuses on blending the paranormal, the supernatural, and psychological thrills, and results in a well-crafted book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trisha | 1/31/2014

    " Saul does a good job keeping pace with authors like Stephen King and Dean Koontz in regard to suspense, but so far I am unimpressed with the endings. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol Brannigan | 1/18/2014

    " The premise itself was good. It was lacking in some of the hows. I had the book figured about half way through and kept hoping for the how which never came. I liked the book but its not the best by the author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marky | 1/18/2014

    " Full of twists and turns. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Victoria Martinez | 12/31/2013

    " WOW! This was the first book I have read of John Saul's and I fell in love with his style. This book scared me! I love ghost stories and watching scary movies but to actually read something that was written so thrilling was chilling. This is a book I will read again and again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate | 12/25/2013

    " Starts ok, but you see pretty much everything else coming. The end doesn't cut the mustard either. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sigi | 12/10/2013

    " I couldn't finish it, the plot was to obvious. I got bored. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenny | 1/30/2013

    " 2.5 Stars. Saul didn't do too bad on the ending like he has most of his books. And it went on a little longer than necessary. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robyn Bosch | 1/16/2013

    " Mr. Saul is a dark writer and you have to have a stomach to read some of his material. Overall, the book was a good read with a few surprises and an ending that I would have preferred a little more detail. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica Johnsen | 8/24/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jody | 4/18/2011

    " Bruce- you must have just picked the wrong books- this one was pretty good, however I've either read it before, or it was awfully similar to another one of his I've read, lol. But no kid main characters and no sentences that just........... :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Olivia | 3/29/2011
