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?”

    " This one I liked as much as his others, but was a little too disturbing for me. Its the last of his I've read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deanna Matlick | 2/8/2014

    " I would really give this book 3.5 stars. It was a page turner for sure, exciting. Not sure I'm thrilled with the ending, but no spoilers from me. Definitely worth the time to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jody | 2/7/2014

    " 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 Leah | 2/7/2014

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bandit | 2/1/2014

    " I keep giving John Saul second chances. Even after the abysmal Blackstone Chronicles. I thought this book might redeem him as an author, it does show effort of trying something new as in no more kid driven plots, this is about a serial killer with a bit of, shall we say, voltage. Saul can write page turners, his pacing is good, it's just that the characters and the plot itself were so blah and so predictable. It'll do to pass the time if you don't particularly want to get invested with the story or pay that much attention, but in a world of so many awesome books, why settle for blah. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate | 1/31/2014

    " 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 Rhonda Stone | 1/31/2014

    " To graphic for my taste. Couldn't finish the whole book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William | 1/23/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book right up to the end and then found the ending very disappointing. I almost downgraded it to a three because of the ending. I found the premise to be pretty good but not original (serial killer executed at the same time a man dies and is revived from a heart attack.) There is lots of action and graphic description to please the not so faint of heart. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremy | 1/20/2014

    " This seemed a little to similar to his book, the right hand of evil. I've read 3 of Saul's books and they are starting to become very predictable. Well written but failed to keep my interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robyn Bosch | 12/30/2013

    " Really good!! it takes place in seattle too :D "

    " Liked the book hated the ending! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tam | 12/23/2013

    " Incredibly shocking book! I have never forgotten this one I think it is one of the best books I have ever read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 12/16/2013

    " The book was alright but was disappointed in the ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimmie | 12/8/2013

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Victoria Martinez | 12/7/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dennis | 12/6/2013

    " Pretty good read. Defiantly held my attention. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica Mackey | 11/5/2013

    " Just finished this book. I haven't read this author for quite some time. Parts were OK but I did not like the ending and I just wasn't feeling this one as much as some of his others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 11/3/2013

    " Excellent serial killer novel with some interesting twists and turns. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenny | 5/31/2013

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Zia | 5/20/2013

    " The book had a story but it didn't have a context altogether. It is almost just for entertaining. It is an okay book but I can't decide if it is worth the read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Allison | 5/12/2013

    " I guess I just expected more... "

    " There was a period of time I only read Koontz, King and Saul. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara Huskey | 3/4/2013

    " Ebook. I thought it was fairly predictable, but I still enjoyed the book and found it exciting enough to hold my attention. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maryam | 2/11/2013

    " Pretty good. Ending seemed rushed, though. I wish it had been different. But it's extremely suspenseful and actually managed to keep me up at night. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 11/27/2012

    " This book is pretty intense & scared the crap out of me. Do not read if you are alone in your house late at night. I higly recommend it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crystal Millet | 11/8/2012
