A telephone ringing in the dead of night signals the beginning of a journey into fear as MaryAnne Carpenter hears the shocking news: her friends the Wilkensons are suddenly, inexplicably dead, their only child, MaryAnne's godchild, abruptly orphaned and dependent on her. Even as MaryAnne rushes to embrace her young charge the disturbing questions mount. Was it a tragic mishap that took their lives - or murder?

As winter closes in on the majestic ranch where the young family lives, the darkness and danger of nature and the unimaginable evil around them seem to work in tandem. An insatiable and brutal killer is closer than they could ever have imagined.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deborah Isner | 2/5/2014

    " Wasn't impressed. I have been reading his work for as long as I can remember, yet it seems that his story is always vary formulaic. I feel like I am reading the same book over and over again, yet with different children as the main/secondary characters. I guess I was just hoping for some ingenuity. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nancy Brady | 2/1/2014

    " A suspense thriller set in Montana. When Joey Wilkenson's parents are killed by someone or something unknown, and his guardian, Aunt MaryAnne and her two children, Alison and Logan, come to live with him at the family ranch. More killings occur, and Joey is acting strangely. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marcus Quinones | 1/30/2014

    " I learned that you can't becareful if you don't have a guardian. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenny Granby | 1/28/2014

    " This book is one of my top five for all time favorite books. I don't even know how many times I have read it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evelyn | 1/26/2014

    " John Saul never disappoints! I find myself trying to figure out where his mind set is at as he writes. I have never read a John Saul book I did not enjoy. They are gripping, fast moving and take you on a definate ride of terror. Prepare to be mentally stimulated in all of his books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Drake | 1/25/2014

    " My new favorite book! The setting was amazing. The characters ( especially Joey and Olivia) were amazing. The plotline was suspenseful and thrilling. I will say no more so I won't spoil it for people who haven't read it. If there is a sequel I need to get it. That's how good it is "

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

    " I found this book rather predictable but really enjoyed getting through the story. I find John Saul's books really hit or miss and this one really could have gone either way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Agnes Muscoreil | 1/3/2014

    " An oldie but a goodie! "

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

    " Had to stop reading Paul after this book. Really freaky! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kyle Morris | 1/1/2014

    " Love all of John Saul's books. He focuses on teenagers, at least all the books of his that I've read were that way. I empathized with his lead characters because I always feel like an outsider, which his characters always wind up being. Saul mixes it all up with some Sci-fi to boot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zjourney | 12/28/2013

    " It was so good - so scary - I've never read John Saul again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne | 12/25/2013

    " I did not want to put this book down. Not a huge fan of John Saul,but it kept me interested. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/13/2013

    " Well written book. Not my usual kind of reading but found this one to be very interesting, great reading. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Melissa | 11/30/2013

    " Horror story set in the mountains of Idaho. Killing of children was too disturbing. I thought the author used cheap thrills to keep novel going. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane Fox | 11/11/2013

    " This one was great but I think all his books are. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan Reuther | 11/8/2013

    " It's funny, as I was reading, I kept feeling like I had read this book before. Sure enough, I had...back in high school! Oh well. Still a pretty decent read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Ann | 10/12/2013

    " I couldn't get rid of this book... The main character has my name so every time I put it on the lending shelf at work someone would bring it to me. Lol! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Summer | 9/8/2013

    " I enjoyed reading this book. It was a lot more than I originally expected. If you like a good plot twist and characters you can truly relate with then this book definitely worth your time. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Samara | 2/16/2013

    " I was a bit disgruntled to find that this tale read like a cheap grocery store thriller. Not what I'm used to by John Saul. Eek. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Irma | 2/1/2013

    " This book is a little more on the suspenseful side but it kept me hooked. What I learned from this book is to always expect the unexpected! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Drake | 6/18/2012

    " My new favourite book. strong characters, great plot, one of my favorite settings. if there isn't a sequel, there should be. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa Park | 6/13/2012

    " i really enjoyed this book...i wish more were available as ebooks from the library "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/7/2012

    " My first John Saul book - I really like his writing style - to the point and clear. So I will try another of his novels but I will say the basis of this particular novel was very far fetched and totally silly... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremy | 2/28/2012

    " Similar to koontz in writing style, this was a solid and entertaining monster story with a believable premise. This was my first Saul book and I will definitely read more of his stuff. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Roxanne | 2/8/2012

    " I read this a long time ago--high school perhaps--anyway it was stupid. "

    " This is a page turner and will make you want to read more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nolena | 12/7/2011

    " Scared the crap out of me, so i tried to put it down, but if i put it down all these alternate endings that came to my mind scared me even more. I finished the book and vowed to read it again only if i had the lights on and it was day time. great book but I'm a chicken. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 8/13/2011
