|Back Cover / Inside Flap:||"After his father's untimely death sends fifteen-year-old Ryan McIntyre into an emotional tailspin, his mother enrolls him in St. Isaac's Catholic boarding school, hoping the venerable institution with a reputation for transforming wayward teens can work its magic on her son. But troubles are not unknown even at St. Isaac, where Ryan arrives to find the school awash in news of one student's violent death, another's mysterious disappearance, and growing incidents of disturbing behavior within the hallowed halls.|
|Review:||I'm a sucker for Catholic-based fiction, and have always held an especial fascination for exorcism. I was very hopeful when this story began, and for the most part I wasn't disappointed. Here's what I loved: great paced story, wonderful characters, extremely interesting plot. Here's what I didn't: too little backstory on Ryan, too much foreshadowing of the conclusion. All in all, though, it worked well, and I will read John Saul again!|
