"All the right scares in all the right places." The Seattle Times
A telephone rings in the dead of night with shocking news for single mother MaryAnne Carpenter: her friends the Wilkensons are suddenly, inexplicably dead, their only child, Joey, a sad and silent adolescent and MaryAnne's godchild, abruptly orphaned. But as MaryAnne rushes with her family to the Wilkenson's ranch to embrace her young charge, disturbing questions mount. Was it an accident that killed her friends? Or murder?
Now, as winter transforms the ranch into a place of blinding, dangerous storms, a series of horrific murders, killings that suggest a raging animal and defy solution by the local police, draw ever closer to MaryAnne and her young family.

House of Reckoning is John Saul’s thirty-sixth novel. His first novel, Suffer the Children, published in 1977, was an immediate million-copy bestseller. His other bestselling suspense novels include In the Dark of the Night, Perfect Nightmare, Black Creek Crossing, Midnight Voices, The Manhattan Hunt Club, The Right Hand of Evil, Guardian, and Faces of Fear. Saul divides his time between Seattle, Washington, and Hawaii.From AudioFile:
What is the truth about recently orphaned Joey Wilkenson's strange behavior and the increasing number of gruesomely butchered bodies turning up in Sugarloaf, Idaho? The listener who appreciates a leisurely developed work of psychological terror will be rewarded by John Saul's methodical tightening of the thumbscrew. David Regal's serious reading captures the somber mood needed for a work that is less menacing in print. Regal's vocal changes are very good for this mixture of ages and sexes, and one of his characters is unintentionally hilarious. Technically, the recording level is superior, and the cover of the cassette case is much more enticing than the book jacket. E.E.L. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
