This is a great book- totally different from any horror/thriller I have ever read. The blurb on the back says: "Interview with a Vampire- but with Satan"

The description really doesn't do justice to the story- its about a counselor who summons up the devil and finds herself battling him for her soul and those of her family. It is the kind of book that not only is entertaining and captivating but also really makes you think about religion and eternity. I highly recommend it.

Psychologist Sara Lynch has been wresting with the concepts of good and evil for her entire career. She believes that God and the Devil are constructs of the human mind, used by people to embody good and evil. But when one of her young patients, a practicing Satanist, hangs himself, Sara attempts to conjure the Devil in hopes of completely understanding the tragedy.

This book keeps you turning the page to see what happens next and also makes you think.Hard.

I thought this book was very interesting and unlike anything I'd ever read before. Creepy, intriguing, and hard to put down!

When a lonely psychologist loses a young patient, she is desperate to figure out why, and what happened. His parents blame her - after all, if she was a good therapist, why would their son have killed himself? And why didn't she see it coming? The psychologist finds out that the patient was worshipping the devil, so she decides to conjure the devil herself, to ask him personally why her patient killed himself. The more the devil talks, the more she feels herself suckered in by his charms, and the harder he is to get rid of.
