Wowee, this book is absolutely unbelieveable. Hard to believe that there are people in this world who are this sick and twisted. Definitely not for the faint of heart.

This was a very disturbing read. It is a true-crime story about a very twisted man who was very deep into black-magic and satanic santeria worship. Even scarier still, he had others who also worshipped the devil with him and it lead to murder and all types of other perversions. Terrifying that something like this could happen in modern times and that so many people died before this psychopath was caught by the law!

One of the most fact based books I have ever read. It reveals the truths behind the "Santeria" religions and its many faces. Here it speaks of the Dark side of Santeria. The "Palo Mayombe". (Palo meaning branch or stick.) (Mayombe meaning Mysteries of the spirits.) Originating from the African Congo this practice/belief is one of the most feared and powerful form of "Black Magic". Brought to the new world through the salve trade. It is striking to the reader that such practices still take place in our 21st century. This book explains in detail the rites and tools used in each of these white and dark practices. The Santeria religion believes, through its rites, that they can strike down their enemies by spells and animal sacrifice while Palo Mayombe believes it takes human sacrifice to accomplish the same. Hence come the death of American college student Mark Kilroy in Mexico on spring break. One thing I have found after doing some research is that these practices are also prevalent here in the U.S. Once thought practiced only outside the U.S. (Mexico, Cuba, Brazil and others) police in N.Y. have found the same alters and tools of the trade in their crime scenes. This book explains how one madman can cultivate others until he has a following (cult) to do his very bidding no matter what morals they once had. No matter the consequence's that may come they are so indoctrinated they are stone cold loyal.
