Overview

In the Dark of the Night by John Saul, Mel Foster

It has waited seven years for someone to come back to the rambling lakeside house called Pinecrest, which has stood empty since its last owner went missing. For upscale Chicago couple Dan and Merrill Brewster, the old midwestern manse is an ideal retreat, and for their kids, Eric and Marci, it’s the perfect place to spend a lazy summer exploring. Which is how Eric and his teenage friends discover the curious cache of discarded objects stowed in a hidden room of Pinecrest’s carriage house. The bladeless hacksaws, shadeless lamps, tables with missing legs, headless axe handle, and other unremarkable items add up to a pile of junk. Yet someone took the trouble to inventory each worthless relic in a cryptic ledger.

The more the boys devote themselves to restoring the forgotten possessions and piecing together the puzzle behind them, the more their fascination deepens into obsession. When a horrifying discovery surfaces, so does the chilling truth about the terrifying events that rocked the town seven years before, the mysterious disappearance of Pinecrest’s last resident, and a twisted legacy with a malevolent life of its own…and a bottomless hunger for new victims.

I only recently discovered John Saul and this is the 5th book of his I've read in the last month. None of his books are disappointing! He can tell a story! I loved the idea of putting items from real serial killers in with the story. It does start out a little slow as compared to the rest of his books, but after the first 60 pages things pick up and keep moving. It's definitely a good book and worth the read.

If you like John Saul you will enjoy this one, written in his classic suspenseful manner. Ive never found one of his novels that I didnt like. Strong content, good characters, and a dramatic build. Good all nighter!

Absolutely a waste of time to read this book. Saul spends so much time repeating information that is already known that its almost 150 pages into the book that the story even starts to develop. He insists on referring to his characters by first and last name. Saul's idea of how teenagers behave/think is so archaic that I have to wonder if he even realizes what century we are in. One of the characters is a worry wart and he pounds this characterization to death. You'll find yourself screaming GET ON WITH IT before the third chapter. I could drone on here, but then I'd be just as bad as this book was. If you want a good book to read then this is not it.

I found the plot of the book to be a very interesting idea but Saul still could have done a little more to provide more thrill to it. Although, it was exciting to find out what was causing the "disturbance" at Pinecrest which alone made it worth the read. If you are looking for a book thats going to knock your socks off then this is not it but if you are looking for a good horror story then I recommmend this book!
