This book is a very scary read that will stay with you for a long time. The plot builds to a WICKED twist at the very end. It will make you shake your head and go..."Damn. That is just evil!" It just sticks in your head. Very well done. I recommend it to horror enthusiasts. It is out of print. There are a few on the system here so line up and get one!
A young woman is heard humming a chant banned as evil thousands of years ago; her husband's girlfriend is burned to death behind a locked door. Nobody believes her, that a little boy is doing these things. A really scary and original read.

This story was different from what the back cover read. It sort of deals more with the trial of a woman for allegedly being a witch rather then the title character, but when he does make appearances we see he is one evil little boy... great book though, it kept my attention and was hard to put down at times.
Emily Blake has begun to hear strange disembodied voices calling her in her home. Her husband's lover has burned to death, in a chair, behind a locked door. The ancient charge of murder by witchcraft has been leveled at Emily...Emily whose only hope may be a grotesque eleven-year-old boy with a demonic sexual craving. A little boy who has already taken her once, evilly. A little boy who taught her the tune of a chant unheard of for fifteen-hundred years.....
This book kept me going from start to finish, an awsome book, a great read!
