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)

Don't waste your time

I usually like John Saul books this verged on getting good, then becoming ridiculous then back to being good... then WTF.... then just dumb. I thought the ending was.... (after all that).....REALLY!!!!! My advice DON'T BOTHER....not his best :(

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.

Not his best.

I've listened and read many John Saul books over the years, and almost enjoyed every one. I found it hard to get into this particular story and actually started 4 or 5 times before I finally got going. As it has a copywrite of 1999 it is obviously one of his earlier books. Well, I eventually got to the end of the story and it does have the hallmark of the books John Saul writes. It is not one of his best but I am sure I will listen to it again, just to see if I could have made a mistake and it is actually better than I at this moment think it is.
