From Ed and Lorraine Warren, the demonologists featured in The Conjuring horror films, comes the story of the most terrifying case of demonic possession in the United States. It became the basis for the hit film The Haunting in Connecticut starring Virginia Madsen. Shortly after moving into their new home, the Snedeker family is assaulted by a sinister presence that preys one-by-one on their family. Exhausting all other resources, they call up the world-renowned demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren, who have never encountered a case as frightening as this.
No one had warned the Snedekers their new house used to be an old funeral home. Their battle with an inexplicable and savage phenomena had only just begun. What started as a simple poltergeist escalated into a full-scale war, an average American family battling the deepest, darkest forces of evil a war this family could not afford to lose.

I will admit that I am a skeptic. I also do not trust anything the Warrens have been involved with. That being said, the story did hold my interest. I am an avid reader of the True Crime/Paranormal genre. There definitely are other stories out there that are far more believable and less sensational. Ghost rape/molestation is shocking and scary. However, this book was so ridiculous it reads less scary and more perverse/disgusting. At one point, two teen girls (relatives) come to stay to avoid their parents messy divorce. I find it utterly ridiculous to believe a parent would find a rapist ghost and cousin preferable to divorce exposure. If I had to guess, this is fabricated. I would assume the family opted to come up with some excuse for a very troubled and sick (physically/mentally) child.
