John Saul's Perfect Nightmare will haunt you long after you have read the last page and set the book aside.

Kara Marshall and her husband Steve lived in Camden Green in a house they had designed and loved. Their daughter Lindsay had been raised in this home and was preparing for her senior year in high school. The Marshall's listed their house for sale and began looking for places to live in New York. Steve's job in New York made it very difficult for him to get home every night and finances didn't permit two residences so the only answer seemed to be moving.

The Marshall family was attempting to make the best of a situation that they weren't really enthused about but little did they know their nightmare was only beginning. The realtor set up an open house and a number of people came to view the Marshall's home. Among them was a very twisted man who had a far more ulterior purpose in mind than purchasing a home. He was a person that seemed to fade into the background and even after looking straight at him an individual couldn't tell you anything about his looks five minutes later. He also managed to find a place to hide in the Marshall's home and he was there when the realtor locked up the house. When Lindsay arrived home that evening her captor was waiting to take her away to a place that you couldn't even imagine in your worse nightmare.

The Marshall's called the police when they found Lindsey missing but didn't receive much satisfaction. They took the stand that Lindsay was unhappy about leaving school and her home. Kara pulled out all of the stops and worked day and night to get out flyers and did everything she could to let the world know her Lindsay was gone. Soon another victim was taken from an open house and finally the police began a search in earnest but it took a mother's determination to uncover the horrible truth behind these disappearances.

This is a book you will think about long after reading the last page. If you are getting ready to sell your home I am sure you will think twice about having an "open house".
