This is such a great book. I read it in one day. I was so drawn in by the plot. It grabs you and keeps you very interested throughout the entire book. I have read other books by John Saul, but I think this is by far his best. I would recommend this to anyone.

This is a very well written book but at times it seemed repetitive. The characters are well defined and have great personalities. This was a quick fast paced read with a surprise ending. A classic Saul work.

Suspenseful, scary read about a dysfunctional family that moves into an old house they inherit and weird stuff starts to happen. Matt, the male teen ager of the family even gets possessed.
There are enough twists and turns to keep your mind churning and scarey stuff to keep your stomach rolling.
