'666' takes the reader into the world of evil that Jay Anson so brilliantly explored in 'The Amityville Horror'-an evil that lies unsuspected behind the door of an ordinary-looking house, a house that reappears from time to time near any city, waiting invitingly, innocently, for someone to rent it, a house in which a dreadful, bloody, orgiastic crime recurs again and again, bringing its victims screaming to the very brink of hell-and into the hands of the Devil himself.
As Keith becomes more and more obsessed by the house, with its intricately carved beams that seem to have witnessed every human crime and its strange, etched windows that glow with a malevolent light, Jennifer finds herself drawn to her friend David Carmichael, a handsome, self-assured man who is everything Keith is not....Inexorable, without their realizing what is happening to them, their lives are being changed by a presence in the house, a powerful force who lets nothing stand in his way-and who at last appears to his victims in a heart-stopping scene of gruesome violence you will never forget.
Compelling, believable, breathlessly paced, totally terrifying, '666' is must reading for everyone who read (or saw) 'The Amityville Horror'.« less
