About the Author:

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:

Horror author John Saul stumbles badly in this simplistic by-the-numbers novel, which has been done before with better success. An ideal family moves to a small town. Of course, there's a secret about the town that begins to manifest itself in one of the children. After Michelle is seriously injured in an accident, she begins to receive visits from another child who suffered a similar accident a hundred years earlier. While anyone who reads horror stories will be able to predict the ensuing dialogue, the author's word choice in the narrative is often baffling; one can appreciate why words like "torpor" and "hubbub" have faded from general usage. This is one of Saul's earlier efforts; thankfully, his work has improved. Tanya Eby gives the text a fighting chance by infusing her characters with distinctive voices and just the right amount of emotion, but she can't save this lame tale.
