Having not read either book, I'm wondering whether it's possible that Chase was not deliberately ripping off Faulkner. SANCTUARY was supposed to have been loosely based on a real-life kidnapping case. Is it possible that Chase simply heard about the same case and based his own novel on it, independent of Faulkner's already having done so?
