A few of many quotes on John Saul

New York Times..."Mr. Saul is a skillful writer..."
Atlanta Journal..."Another thriller by one of the masters of the genre."
UPI..."Shadows is a romping good read...Great stuff, you won't want to miss this one."
L.A. Times..."Sleepwalk has a finalé that Cecil B. Demille would have died for."
People..."Saul has the instincts of a natural story teller"
Press Enterprise..."Shadows is the best of any horror novel (or any other kind, for that matter) to arrive this season."
Tulsa World..."Normally I don't read this kind of book, but I'm glad I did. John Saul kept me spellbound to the horror with exquisite details that rallied primeval fears from darkness that dwells below the subconscious in us all."
Denver Post..."Won't disappoint readers."
Dayton Voice..."John Saul's a master of description and storytelling."
Boston Herald..."Saul has written a tidy spine tingler."
Publishers Weekly..."His 18th novel, no exception, is a snappily paced extravaganza..."
Kirkus Reviews..."Saul is...creepily compelling. A skillful manipulation of primal fears about the natural world and the corruption of innocence."
Seattle Times..."All the right scares in all the right places."
Detroit News..."A writer with the touch of raising the gooseflesh."
San Francisco Chronicle..."Tantalizing."
Cosmopolitan..."Every paranoid expertly, shockingly exploited."
San Diego Tribune..."Each chapter leaves you breathless for more..."
Providence Journal..."Reading Saul is like being buried alive in a nightmare...he haunts his shadowy realm ingeniously and persistently, and I think that Nightshade may be his masterpiece."

Playboy... "Black Creek Crossing (is a) hair raiser worth your time. Just when you think you've read it all before in Carrie, Pet Cemetery and The Shining the plot bends toward something we'd title Revenge of the Witchcraft Nerds. Even professors like a good scare, don't they?"
Mystery News Review..."To say more about the characters and the plot of Perfect Nightmare at this point will most certainly interfere with readers experiences when they read this highly recommended thriller. So, let me just say instead that John Saul has proven once again that he is one of the most skilled craftsmen in the genre of psychological thrillers."
