The Blackstone Chronicles are short novels. Each novel in the series revolves around an object with a connection to the old Blackstone Insane Asylum. People in the town receive these items and horror and mayhem follow. I am a fan of John Saul horror novels, and these are good as well.
Jules Hartwick had it all, a devoted wife, a lovely daughter, and a distinguished career as the president of the First National Bank of Blackstone, until he received a mysterious gift, a sliver locket. After the Federal Reserve audited the financing of the Blackstone Center, which was to rise on the site of the old Asylum, Jules became paranoid, accused his wife Madeleine of having an affair with his daughter Celeste's finance, Andrew. What became of Jules was tragic, part of a deadly chain of events for the Blackstone community. Who will be the unlucky recipient of the next mysterious gift from the evil dark figure?
