Suffer the Children

by John Saul

One hundred years ago in Port Arbello a pretty little girl began to scream.

And struggle.

And die.

No one heard.

No one saw.

Just one man whose guilty heart burst in pain as he dashed himself to death in the sea. Now something peculiar is happening in Port Arbello. The children are disappearing, one by one. An evil history is repeating itself. And one strange, terrified child has ended her silence with a scream that began a hundred years ago.

Review: I finished this novel on Tuesday, July 10th, 207. My very first John Saul novel, one of several that I picked up at the Barrie Flea Market last year. It was good as well as creepy.

The characters seeemed like normal, everyday people – a family with problems, and strange happenings.

Several times, I was shocked, dismayed, angry, and freaked right out. What happens in the novel doesn’t seem so far-fetched, and it’s scary how real it seems. The end made me feel helpless and I shuddered at something else.

Want to read an older psycho thriller, this one will make you sleep with the light on.
