For five years Seattle journalist Anne Jeffers has pursued the horrifying story of a sadistic serial killer's bloody reign, capture, trial, and appeal -- crusading to keep the wheels of justice churning toward the electric chair. Now the day of execution has come. A convicted killer will meet his end. Anne believes her long nightmare is over. But she's dead wrong ... Within days, a similar murder stuns the city. As the butcher stalks his next victims, creeping ever closer to her, Anne is seized by an icy unease, a haunting sense of connection to these unspeakable crimes. And, relentlessly, she hears the eerie echo of the dead man's last words to her: "Today won't end it. How will you feel, Anne? When I'm dead, and it all starts again, how will you feel?"… (més)

A serial killer horror/thriller with a difference!
At the beginning of the novel, convicted serial killer Richard Kraven is sent to the electric chair for his crimes. Not long after, back in Seattle, Washington, copycat murders start to happen. Fear grips the city. And one family of four find themselves at the center of it all: newspaper reporter Anne Jeffers, her architect husband Glen Jeffers, 15-year-old daughter Heather, and 10-year-old son Kevin.
Equal parts horror, mystery, and thriller this novel is a rollercoaster ride of suspense filled with memorable characters and truly scary moments. And John Saul's detailed descriptions of the streets of Seattle is a definite bonus.

Anne Jeffers, ace reporter, watches serial killer Richard Kraven, whom she helped convict, die in the electric chair. At almost the same time, thousands of miles away, Anne's husband suffers a massive heart attack. Dead for over two minutes, Glen Jeffers recovers, but his personality is just never the same. The gruesome murders attributed to Richard Kraven start all over again - four years after his incarceration. Who can be the killer? Is there an accomplice? Are these copy cat murders? Who can say?

John Saul's writing produces explicit graphics in the imaginations of all the followers of this horrific writing. I recommend "Black Lightning" to anyone who loves a fast page turner, but if you are offended by blood and guts and gore, you're in the wrong section of the library or book store. ( )

I have the paperback version of this book, however I read the Ebook version from the library on my Nook for convenience sake. I thought it was fairly predictable, but I still enjoyed the book and found it exciting enough to hold my attention. ( )

The premise itself was good. It was lacking in some of the hows. I had the book figured about half way through and kept hoping for the how which never came. I liked the book but its not the best by the author. ( )

It had me guessing right up untill the final chapter. One of the best novels I ever read. I read this book over a year ago, read it a couple times since and still love it! Absolutly love it hands down. ( )
