OMG, it was so great to read such a 'hard-to-put-down' book again! It has been a long time since I've had the pleasure of reading a really intense thriller,but John Saul's~ The Presence,was a great one.I don't know why I haven't read more by him since I remember really liking 'Nathaniel' years ago. I will definitely be reading more of his work for a while. This book captured my interest from the beginning,and the suspense got intense very early on. It is a great unique storyline,plus I really enjoyed all the descriptions of Hawaii.This book really put me into the scene,and the characters are very well developed as well.I really cared about them. Highly recommend this one.
