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.… (més)

I loved the story taking place in my home state of WI with the Up North small town coming to life during the summer. Concept – teen boys find parts from the killing instruments used by brutal serial killers. People start to die in ways that reflect the original killers – i.e. Jack the Ripper slitting throats, recalls WI killers Jeffrey Dahmer and Ed Gein methods. The boys get nightmares that make them wonder if they had a part in the murders since they put the items back together. A lot of the story involved a neurotic mother fears of change, teen age love and rivalries. ( )

This is probably the bloodiest John Saul book I have read yet. Gory, suspenseful and pretty brutal. The story is good but a little predictable. It seems some things were left hanging, but that is OK. A little ambiguity is good for the imagination. I feel a little more of the "why" should be answered but all in all it is a good read. ( )

The Brewster family decides to have summer vacation this year at a lakeside mansion called Pinecrest. Sixteen-year-old Eric is happy because he will be able to spend time with his friends, Tad and Kent, who are vacationing at nearby houses with their parents. Soon after they arrive Eric does some exploring and finds an old carriage house on the property. He finds some strange items inside the carriage house and he eventually shows his friends. They also discover a secret room that has been bricked up, which they open up. They feel pulled and drawn to this room that contains some odd items that are all written down in a ledger. They are curious to know why the items are hidden away. The more they investigate, the more they start to act differently. They start having horrible dreams. People begin to turn up dead, or are they murdered? And what ever happened to the previous owner of Pinecrest, who disappeared seven years ago?

This was a really captivating and eerie read. I kept turning the pages, wondering what was going to happen next. The carriage room and its items were totally creepy. I liked the book's setting, a small resort town called Phantom Lake. The characters in the story were interesting. Some I liked, some I didn't.

Another enjoyable, atmospheric read by John Saul. ( )

This is a decent horror novel. It takes awhile to get to the good stuff, but the last half of the book was pretty good. John Saul's books are pretty formulaic, but sometime, that is what I want to read. I will always remember how scary his books were when I first started reading them as a teen.

This book once again features teens in trouble. The cursed objects could have been more interesting, but it was still a pretty good concept. ( )

A genuinely creepy horror novel. It starts off with a fairly common scenario, a group of teenage friends heading into a situation that isn't going to turn out well. The evil goings-on are interesting though, and I wasn't quite sure what would happen next, or quite how it would end. It's the first book I've read by this author, but it won't be the last. ( )
