Editor Oliver Metcalf has written a provocative article that implies there may be a curse on the town. The community is outraged. Then Rebecca Morrison disappears and a package appears on a residents front porch. The contents hold the ultimate, grisly key to the horrors of the Asylum. Now, Oliver must confront the fruesome truth of the past..one that threatens to crush all of Blackstone in one final grip of terror.

This series was ok, but I always find Saul to come up lacking when the story is over.

Oliver Metcalf, editor of 'The Blackstone Chronicle,' the town's weekly newspaper, has written of the mysterious deaths that have occurred in Blackstone over the last six months, implying that there may be a curse on the town. He is terrified of the old Asylum and gets terrible headaches every time he goes near it. Did something happen to him there when he was a young boy, something so horrible he blocked it from his memory? His uncle, Harvey Connally, received a familiar gift that may help him remember what happened. Will Rebecca be saved in time? In this final part, we finally discover who the dark figure is, although the Blackstone community reaches it's own conclusion. The curse is lifted. The nightmare is over. I am a big fan of John Saul, however, I found this series a bit predictable. In Part 4 of this series, I suspected who the dark figure might be and it turned out I was right. Usually, I am very disappointed when that happens, but it is forgivable here because it worked.

Final volume of a 6 part serial book (sort of like Stephen King's "The Green Mile"). My 13 Y/O daughter devoured the entire set in 2 days this past summer, and loved it.

I have 1, 5, & 6 right now. If I can find the other 3 in my daughter's room (probable, but far from certain), I will ship them all as one book (for 1 credit). In the mean time, I am listing the three that I have separately in case someone needs to fill in a gap.
