Ray Russell – The Case Against Satan

Posted by glampunk on August 30, 2007

Ray Russell – The Case Against Satan (Sphere, 1970: originally 1963)

Can a pious and beautiful young girl become the spokesman of the devil? Can Satan manifest himself in the mind and body of a guileless innocent?

The Bishop could find no other reason for Susan Garth’s strange and shocking behaviour – and Father Sargent was assigned to the dangerous task of exorcism. A dangerous task indeed for a brilliant young priest beset by serious doubts about his own faith.

As Father Sargent struggles to reconcile the new frontiers of psychiatry with the dark, primeval forces of evil, the story unfolds with painful suspense to its extraordinary climax.

    i red this book about 10 years ago and it still sticks in my mind,an absolute joy,even better than ‘the exorcist’….i was about 18 at the time and not interested in novels.i can honestly say its changed my entire outlook on books.thank you for frightening the life out of a young man!it was worth it though….
