This is the first book-length study of best-selling writer John Saul's psychological and supernatural thrillers. Author Paul Bail compares John Saul's novels to a cocktail: "[mix] one part Psycho, one part The Exorcist, a dash of Turn of the Screw, blend well, and serve thoroughly chillingly." Bail traces John Saul's literary career from his 1977 debut novel Suffer the Children--the first paperback original ever to make the New York Times best seller list--to his most recent novel, Black Lightning (1995). It features never-before-published biographical information, drawing on an original interview with John Saul, and a chapter on the history of tales of horror and the supernatural and how these genres have influenced Saul's fiction.Bail, Paul is the author of 'John Saul : A Critical Companion/Online', published 2002 under ISBN 9780313326325 and ISBN 0313326320.
