Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These two works continue Saul's penchant for the eerie and creepy. In Cry for the Strangers, a seemingly beautiful small coastal town turns into a death trap for strangers. Somehow the storms and sea share a connection with the deaths of new residents, but what exactly is that connection? Punish the Sinners explores the Catholic Church and intertwines the 1252 Inquisition in Italy with the hiring of a teacher of Latin and psychology at a Catholic school in 1978. A spate of suicides among female students occurs shortly after the teacher's arrival, leaving the town frightened and watchful. At the same time, a group of priests participate in a secret medieval ritual. Both readers are well suited to their respective stories. Mel Foster (Cry) conveys the whiney and tattletale tones frequently heard from children while also displaying sufficient variation of voices to differentiate among the numerous adult characters. David Daoust's delivery in Punish is calm and quiet yet ably displays fear, bewilderment, confusion, and anger. In both books, the final thought expressed at the end of one side is repeated at the beginning of the next side, and background music adds to the atmosphere. Essential for those libraries with Saul fans; recommended for all public libraries.-Laurie Selwyn, Grayson Cty. Law Lib., Sherman, TX Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    I found this book to be disappointing including the ending, whic

    I found this book to be disappointing including the ending, which like two other Saul books I read doesn't seem like it truly ends at all. Three of his books that I read all seem to have that same theme in the endings, a negative that keeps repeating itself.

    Good story line and interesting characters. My only problem wit

    Good story line and interesting characters. My only problem with this and the other 4 books by John Saul is the typo and grammer errors. In almost every chapter of the nook book version I've found at least one word used in place of the correct word, or found a period (.) missing. It may be a ebook thing and not found in the printed versions. I don't know, but it distracts me when I read. It's a minor problem but that's my only negative comment. Other than that it's a good read.

    What a great ghost story...

    I found Cry For The Strangers very entertaining. It is a quick read and very good. The storyline is very interesting. The characters are well developed and become quite likeable. It takes place on the seashore of a small town and has mystic happenings that will keep you wondering. I certainly recommend it.

    Different, but Good

    Not one of my favorite John Saul books, but still a good read. It has the normal Saul twists and suspense of the unknown. Yet, not quite up to par with The Homing and Right Hand of Evil.
