Publisher's Summary

From Neil Bennion, author of Dancing Feat, comes this all-new, quick guide to Colombia.

The world's most famous demonologists, Ed and Lorraine Warren, were called in to help an average American family who were assaulted by forces too awesome, too powerful, and too dark to be stopped. It's a true story, supported by dozens of eyewitnesses - neighbors, priests, police, journalists, and researchers.

The grim slaughterhouse of odors.... The deafening pounding.... The hoofed half-man charging down the hall.... The physical attacks, a vicious strangling, failed exorcisms, the succubusm and the final terror which continued to torment the Smurls.

In this shocking, terrifying, deeply absorbing book rivaled only by The Amityville Horror, a case also investigated by the Warrens, journalist Robert Curran digs deep into the haunting of the Smurl home in West Pittston, Pennsylvania, and the unshakeable family bonds that helped them survive.

A Fan ofEd and Lorraine Warren

I am a big fan of Ed and Lorraine Warren. I admire and have the utmost respect for what they do abd the love and care they feel for their fellow man. I hope one day I can at least be half the Demonologist they are and through Ed have gone on a he of us that I might actually meet and learn from Lorraine some day. God bless Ed and Lorraine Warren, Amen.

Well written

I feel bad that this family had to endure such a horrific encounter. I hope that they were finally able to obtain peace. The book was well written and kept you interested throughout the whole thing. Todd Haberkorn does such a great job narrating this book, he's one of my favorite narrators! I recommend listening to this one, these things really do happen...evil does exist and we need to be aware of it.

One of Ed and Lorraine's Less Interesting Stories

This book tells the story of Jack and Janet Smurl, their children, and Jack's parents, who lived in a duplex. Both sides were said to have an entity going in between both halves of the house. The story goes through the haunting of this family and the several attempts to rid the house of the demonic presence that was terrorizing the family.

This is the third book in the Ed and Lorraine series of books that tell different stories about various hauntings that have taken place. This one happens to be my least favorite so far, which is weird, because I think it had the most stuff happen. It could be because the ending felt rushed or something else, but the Warrens were hardly mentioned and I usually like to hear more of their input.

So, I'm going to give the book a solid C rating and, since Todd Haberkorn is one of my favorite narrators, he will continue to get A's from me.

Great Story

This was a lot better than I expected and seems a more convincing account than something like Amityville
Engrossing and detailed it really gripped me from start to finish

Scary story, creepy performance (not in a good way

Todd Haberkorn is the man reading this story, and when he lends his voice to female characters he tries to act out in a way that sends shivers up my spine; it's ridiculous, annoying and profoudly unappealing. When he is acting out little girls it's even worse. Use you're own voice, Todd!

Scary, but a little repetitive.

The book starts off fairly enjoyable and creepy. The story is paced well, and you really get to know all involved. In the last few hours though, it does start to drag some. It's the same stories and interviews over and over. Do we need to know about every night they were kept awake due to banging or saw a figure? We don't.

Again, the narration is really well done.

Interesting enough, but certainly not scary.

The story overall was great in the 1st half of the book but over time it got stale. It started feeling stagnant, but let's face it, it's the Warrens so it's going finish strong.

Very slow build up, found it hard to stick with

This book was extremely slow to get going, found it a hard slog to get through 2/3 of the book. Last 1/3 very good. Narrator very good.
