Something is taking the children. Creepy read. I think his earlier books, like this one were much scarier than the books he puts out now.
I really enjoyed this book, it is crazy to think that this may actually be possible someday.
From the back of book: Something is happening to the children of Eastbury, Massachusetts...Something that causes healthy babies to turn cold in their cribs. Something that strikes at the heart of every parent's darkest fears. Something unexplained that is taking the children, one by one... Sally Montgomery has just lost her beautiful little baby girl. Lucy and Jim Corliss, bitterly divorced, have been reunited by the sudden disappearance of their son. An entire town waits on the edge of panic for the next child to be taken. They all know there must be a reason for the terror. But no one ever expected...The God Project.

This book was way ahead of its time involving genetic experimentation. The book is written in a very straightforward style with some great twists and turns, especially toward the end which will not disappoint you. I am a huge Saul fan, although this is not one of his best books, it is a worthwhile read.
This book had everything to keep you entwined in its pages. I think the part that stood out the most was the ending. It totally took me by surprise.
Couldn't put this one down!
This is a fun quick read.
Great book hated to have it end. Well written.
More a sci-fi tale about genetic engineering than horror. It amazed me that John Saul originally wrote this book in 1984 and the only thing telling about the time frame is - no cell phones. This book has it all - computers, dna, etc. Quick, good page-turning read.
Decent sci fi/horror novel that is suspenseful and really plays with your mind.
Great!!! I also liked the narrator!
Something fishy is going on in the once quiet town of Eastbury, Massachusetts, where two women are brought together after losing a child. Sally Montgomery loses her infant daughter Julie to SIDS, but she is convinced it was something else. Lucy Corliss loses her son Randy, who is reported as a runaway, but she is convinced he was kidnapped. Both parents discover that their children were secretly being surveyed by CHILD (Children's Health Institute for Latent Diseases) without consent, but why? Written over twenty years ago, I expected this book to be a bit outdated, but John Saul points out the horrifying possibilities and ethical issues surrounding technology that remain a concern to this day, terrifying, one of his best works! I highly recommend this book, conspiracy theories, genetic engineering, kidnapping, murder, this book has it all, a must read!
