Publisher's Summary

Just as their troubled marriage is reaching the breaking point, Ted and Janet Conway inherit a home that has been in the family for more than a century. Eager to make a new beginning, the Conways and their three children head for the promise of a better life in the small Louisiana town of St. Albans.

But within the long-abandoned, sprawling Victorian manse lies the dark history of the Conway name - a grim bloodline poisoned by suicide, strange disappearances, voodoo rituals, and rumors of murder.

The Conways know nothing of the soul-shattering secrets that, once revealed, will threaten to consume every living soul in their fiery wake. For with each generation of the Conway name comes a hellish day of reckoning.

Critic Reviews

"Best-selling Gothic Suspense-meister John Saul is back with a gory tale of evil that is both extreme and entertaining." (Chicago Tribune)
"Bill Weideman's reading is expressive, and his words are clearly enunciated." (Library Journal)

John Saul obsessions

John Saul is 1 out of the top 3 of my favourite authors. John Saul, Dean Koontz, AND Mark Tufo. I've noticed that Mr. Saul has a thing for schools and Catholics. don't get me wrong, I love his books. but sometimes it makes me think, what happened? anyways. this is another fantasticly hair raising book that he has created centered around a catholic school. if you're a catholic, don't take it personal, haha.
