Sort order. This book.. I don't know.. It didn't feel like a John Saul book to me.. I've been on a spree of his books.. This just didn't seem like the same weirdly intriguing paranormal thriller with twisted kids I'm used to from him.. The idea of plastic surgery being the norm for teenage girls IS twisted.. But I found it over the top.. I mean is it really like that in the glamour and gli Well.. I mean is it really like that in the glamour and glitz lifestyles of the rich??
In any case.. I found the book quick paced.. A fast read.. Which is what I expect and like from John Saul's books.. It was just gruesome enough and suspenseful.. Who was killing these poor women.. What was going to happen to Allison.. That poor dog!!! So overall I did enjoy it enough to want to know what happened.. But it wasn't my favorite of his..
The Nine Faces of Fear Evaluation
Oct 25, Babydimps Suzy rated it it was ok. Predictable, boring and the characters were not likable. I was looking for something a bit more thrilling and chilling, but this book isn't it. Just didn't do it for me. At least I still have a few days of October left to read something scarier and worthwhile. View 2 comments. Jan 10, Peter rated it it was amazing Shelves: horror. Fantastic novel that really ran shivers down my spine.
Who is the grizly Frankenstein killer taking special parts of his victims? What has the series of murder cases to do with cosmetic surgeon Conrad Dunn? What about his stepdaughter Alison and his new wife Risa? Classic Saul and satire against American beauty craze and plastic surgery. Even homosexuality is covered within the pages. Absolute pageturner and definitely worth your time! The novel reads like a movie an "cuts" on your nerves.
Oct 12, Pam rated it really liked it Shelves: horror , california. Really good.

Her parents eventually realize they are better suited as friends and divorce. Dunn -- a very famous plastic surgeon to the area's celebrities. When they marry, Alison starts at a new school The Academy and moves into a mansion in Beverly Hills.
She is not so sure about all of this but is soon adapting and accepting of this different lifestyle … even going as far as to want breast augmentation for her 16th birthday. Her friends from before are horrified but the current ones have all had multiple surgical enhancements. At this time there is a serial killer in the area who is honing in on one feature of each woman he kills.
One murder involves the removal of the ears, another a nose and so on. There are several things very unnatural and disturbing about these killings -- in addition to the surgical removal of one body part there is also the removal of certain glands. There is no doubt that Dr.

Dunn is somehow involved but the suspense and surprise lies in who his accomplice is and then even more so in the true identity of this person and also in what the intentions were to for these body parts. A good read and a reminder why I have enjoyed reading Saul over the years. Oct 17, Darlene rated it really liked it. Hard to believe that Faces of Fear is John Saul's thirty-fifth novel. He published his first novel in and about five years later I started reading his books and have been a loyal fan since loving each thrill along the way. The latest one, Faces of Fear, did not disappoint me whatsoever.
It was different from your ordinary thriller as it was more psychological but it was full of suspense and creepiness which is exactly what I've come to expect and look forward to when I crack open the spine o Hard to believe that Faces of Fear is John Saul's thirty-fifth novel.

The Three Faces of Fear
What some people will do to achieve that state of perfection is definitely enough to creep me out. Another great novel by one of my favorite authors! Feb 17, Laurie rated it liked it Shelves: fiction-other. Faces of Fear was an average book for writer John Saul. Although I have not read many of his books, this book seemed to lack the luster of some of his other works. In Faces of Fear, Alison Shaw and her mother Rita are left reeling after the departure of Rita's husband who suddenly reveals to them that he is a gay man in love with someone.
While their relationship remains amicable, both are left hurting and looking to put their lives back together.
