Spooky, fun read. Typical John Saul. I've read this one a couple times, and still enjoy it.
I think this is one of his best works.
For one hundred years the old mill has stood silent, its dread secrets locked away and barred from view. Still, the people of Westover, Massachusetts, remember - remember and whisper of that fateful day when horrifying flames claimed eleven innocent lives. The day the mill's iron doors slammed shut - forever.
Now, Westover is a sleepy town tucked away beyond the Interstate, all but forgotten. Now, the last dreams of the once-powerful Sturgess family dreams of reopening the mill. Now, Philip Sturgess is about to unlock the dorrs to the past...and unleash an elemental fury. For beyond those doors, padlocked for so many years, deep within the dark, abandoned building, a terrible vengeance waits.
Typical John Saul horror-mystery; something dark and vengeful in a small town looking for someone to pay back.
