Read full description of the books:
I really enjoyed this, the second episode in the six part Blackstone Chronicles. Who is the mysterious person who goes into the old asylum and takes things from a secret room? They are all items that belonged to the poor inmates of the asylum and they all end up in the hands of members of the local community. Why does the stranger deliver these items to people in the town? The consequences are always dreadful.
The latest recipient of a ‘gift’ is Jules Hardwick, everything is so good for him, he is happily married to Madeline, he has a lovely daughter Celeste and his career as president of the First National Bank of Blackstone is going so well. But then he receives a gift, the locket, and his world is thrown out of kilter. He undergoes a massive change in character, his family and friends cannot understand what is wrong with him. He starts to act like a mad man and it all builds up to a terrifying conclusion.
This book is really creepy, frightening and tense and best of all it has NO swear words. Thank you John Saul! I have a few favourite horror writers most of which do not use bad language however, some do and for me it just spoils the effect of the story. True fear can be created without cursing, swearing really isn’t scary just unpleasant.

Read information about the authorJohn Saul grew up in Whittier California where he graduated from Whittier High School in 1959. He attended several colleges—Antioch, in Ohio, Cerritos, in Norwalk, California, Montana State University and San Francisco State College, variously majoring in anthropology, liberal arts, and theater, but never obtaining a degree.
After leaving college, he decided the best thing for a college dropout to do was become a writer, and spent the next fifteen years working in various jobs while attempting to write a book someone would want to publish. Should anyone ever want to write a novel concerning the car-rental industry or the travails of temporary typists, John can provide excellent background material.
Those years garnered him a nice collection of unpublished manuscripts, but not a lot of money. Eventually he found an agent in New York, who spent several years sending his manuscripts around, and trying to make the rejection slips sound hopeful. Then, in 1976, one of his manuscripts reached Dell, who didn't want to buy it, but asked if he'd be interested in writing a psychological thriller. He put together an outline, and crossed his fingers.
At that point, things started getting bizarre. His agent decided the outline had all the makings of a best-seller, and so did Dell. Gambling on a first novel by an unknown author, they backed the book with television advertising (one of the first times a paperback original was promoted on television) and the gamble paid off. Within a month Suffer the Children appeared on all the best-seller lists in the country and made the #1 spot in Canada. Subsequently all 32 of his books, have made all the best-seller lists and have been published world wide. Though many of his books were published by Bantam/Doubleday/Dell his last fourteen books have been published by Ballantine/Fawcett/Columbine.
In addition to his work as novelist, John is also interested in the theater. He has acted, and as a playwright has had several one-act plays produced in Los Angeles and Seattle, and two optioned in New York. One of his novels was produced by Gerber Productions Company and M.G.M. as a C.B.S. movie and currently one of his novels is in development.
John served on the Expansion Arts Panel of the National Endowment for the Arts. He is actively involved with the development of other writers, and is a lecturer at the Pacific Northwest Writers Conference and the Maui Writers Conference and received the Life Time Achievement Award from the Northwest Writers Conference. John is also a trustee and Vice President of The Chester Woodruff Foundation (New York), a philanthropic organization.
John lives part-time in the Pacific Northwest, both in Seattle and in the San Juan Islands. He also maintains a residence on the Big Island of Hawaii. He currently enjoys motor homing, travel and golf. He is an avid reader, bridge player, golfer and loves to cook.
