I can always count on John Saul to creep me out with a good story. While Perfect Nightmare isn't one of my favorites, I haven't yet read a book of his that I didn't like. The premise of this story is extremely unsettling - a traumatic event in a young boy's life results in his becoming a pedophile as an adult, except he doesn't know he's a pedophile. He abducts his victims by sneaking into their homes during an Open House completely undetected. Unmasking the monster in this tale wasn't too difficult, but the ending was nonetheless shocking. If you have enjoyed other books by John Saul, chances are you will enjoy this one too.
