Read full description of the books:
Een rustig stadje ergens in Massachusetts... vriendelijke mensen met alledaagse zorgen en een weinig schokkend levenspatroon, totdat... de zes maanden oude Julie op een kwade ochtend dood in haar wiegje wordt aangetroffen en geen arts kan zeggen wat de doodsoorzaak is geweest.
Doch Julie's moeder vermoedt dat hier moord in het spel is en gaat verbitterd - maar vastberaden - op onderzoek uit.
Enkele dagen later verdwijnt een negenjarig jongetje spoorloos en weer laten de officiële instanties het afweten en is het de radeloze moeder die weigert te rusten voor haar zoontje weer veilig thuis is.
Maar wat deze moeders ontdekken is groter en gruwelijker dan zij konden vermoeden.
Want welke huiveringwekkende plannen heeft de machtige organisatie, die kinderen volgt, kidnapt en zo nodig vermoordt?
Wie is verantwoordelijk voor het feit dat tientallen meisjes onder raadselachtige omstandigheden voor hun eerste verjaardag overlijden?
Wie beheerst de kwade macht die dood en verderf zaait onder de bevolking van het stadje en kinderen als proefkonijnen gebruikt bij mensonterende experimenten?

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Those years garnered him a nice collection of unpublished manuscripts, but not a lot of money.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.
