Clark's Harbor was the perfect coastal haven, jealously guarded against outsiders. But now strangers have come to settle there.

A howling, deadly...Cry for the Strangers.… (més)

Brad Randall and his wife Elaine (from Seattle) decide to live in Clark's Harbor (Washington) for a year. Brad is a psychiatrist who is writing a book and the small coastal town seems like the perfect place to do it, away from all the distractions back home. But soon they find Clark's Harbor isn't as lovely as it seems. The townspeople aren't very friendly towards strangers. And now the strangers are dying in violent, mysterious ways...

I really enjoyed this book. I liked the Randall's neighbors (Glen and Rebecca Palmer) and their story concerning their nine-year-old son Robby who suffered from hyperkinesis (whose condition miraculously improved after moving to Clark's Harbor). I disliked Police Chief Harney Whalen. But I liked Deputy Chip Connor who was kind to the Palmers. I found the story of Sod Beach (aka Sands Of Death) to be totally creepy.

This was a fast and easy read. I was always curious to see what was going to happen next. I liked the setting and atmosphere of the coastal town.

Another captivating read by John Saul. ( )

Excellent mystery, physiological intrigue ( )

Not the best ever, some aspects were a little predictable, and there were a couple characters and angles brought in that didn't really seem to do enough, though they were interesting. Overall enjoyable thriller. ( )

Een boek dat je als Saul fan niet mag missen.
een verhaal waarvan je denkt dat je het door hebt, maar waarbij je verrast wordt. ( )
