Publisher Comments:

John Saul knows how to make the blood run cold and the heart race wild with fear. Now the author of the New York Times bestsellers Creature and The Homing delivers his most chilling novel yet, a gripping story ofa convicted serial killer sentenced to death--and hell-bent on revenge.

For five years Seattle has been seized in the terrifying grip of a monster as black as evil itself: a sadistic serial killer who methodicallylures his victims to grisly deaths in order to satisfy a twisted passion.

For five years journalist Anne Jeffers has pursued this horrifying story like a woman obsessed--following the killer's capture, trial andappeal--crusading to keep the wheels of justice churning toward the electric chair, never believing the prisoner's steadfast denials of guilt.

Now the day of execution has come. A convicted killer will meet hisend. Anne believes her five-year nightmare is over.

Until, within days, a similar murder stuns the city, forcing Anne to face some disturbing questions: Was the wrong man put to death? And is she to blame? Or didhe have an accomplice who longs to continue a bloody legacy? Is a copycat killer at work? But how could any imitator so uncannily re-create all the gruesome hallmarks of a murderer's modus operandi, details kept completelysecret from all but the police?

As the murderer stalks his next victims, creeping ever closer to her, Anne cannot help but feel 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?

In BlackLightning, John Saul strikes with a novel as electrifying as a jagged bolt from a pitch-dark sky, proving once again his inimitable genius for suspense.
