I'm a huge John Saul fan and have been for years. I've loved almost everything I've read by him. However, I am shocked that he actually wrote this book. It was so poorly written and awkward that it was almost painful to read at times. I felt as if I were reading something written by a high school student. It was predictable, full of stereotypes, and just plain boring.

SO glad I got this at the library, and didn't pay for it. He seems to write either VERY good books (Manhattan Hunt Club) or lousy ones (The Swarm). This was more like The Swarm. It's a shame, because it's a great idea for a story, and the ancient Catholic church topics (like Da Vinci Code) are so popular now. First half was boring, second half was mildly exciting, but also predictable, and at times, disgusting. Enough plot holes to drive a truck through. Pass on this one...

Usually I am a fan of John Saul but this book was a little disappointing. It started off good but then somewhere in the middle I felt he just let it go and hurried to finish the book.

Being a Christian I can't say I like what Mr. Saul is saying about the Church. Maybe not his actual opinion, it is nonetheless a dim view of things. Mr. Saul is a master at bringing out the phobias that are common to all mankind. It was a good read, not heavy in any area with just the right amount of phobic description, tension and suspense. Yes, you know the ending from the beginning; it's predicitble, but Still worth reading. Good PBS book - read and trade.

One of my favorite spook authors. I like all his books and read every new one he writes. Not one of the best but another good one.

This book was pretty good - not great, but it definitely had a few creepy moments and a page-turning plot. I read a few of Saul's books a long time ago, and while I recall one of them as being particularly frightening (_The Right Hand of Evil_), this book was more of an entertaining mystery than genuinely scary (though there are also a few "gross-out" parts, too). I wish that there had been more to wrap up the end, since as it is felt rushed and with some pretty major loose ends. Still, it made for a quick, fun and easy read.
