I have seen people give this 5 Stars while others give it 1.what are you supposed to think when you see reviews like that? Well,I read the book and I gave it 2 stars,it wasnt a horrible book but it WAS NOT anything like how it was promoted. I have to agree with SLR and here is why
1- The promo says "Newman’s investigation of the Martin house has become his most terrifying and mysterious case to date" Not even close,he was never really scared let alone his most terrifying
2- "What starts out as a malicious assault quickly spirals into a story of obsession, possession, witchcraft, and murder" There was no assault,no one was ever possessed unless they mean possessed of crack,no witchcraft,unless someone drawing a fake lame ouija board with a bic pen is witchcraft,and no one was murdered,someone 100 years prior MAY HAVE BEEN murdered but probably not.
3- "When the evidence becomes overwhelming, long-buried memories from Newman’s past come back to haunt him" What becomes overwhelming is his boredom,pouring of tens of hours of evidence only to find nothing,in fact he is so bored(along with the reader) that he has to tell a story of a supposed haunting incident from his past(which also is not scary at all)
4- "Collecting physical evidence, researching the violent history of the property, and interviewing the world’s most famous demonologists, Newman’s investigation of the Martin house plunges him into the darkest depths of the unknown" No physical evidence was ever collected,violent history of the property was hearsay, and the darkest depths of the unknown they refer to are the depths a bunch of crackheads will go to,to fabricate evidence to get a movie made about them.

If you are reading the exerpt of this book stating how terrifying it is...it's a lie. Out of over 240 pages only about 10 are devoted to the haunted trailer. When he finally gets around to talking about the haunting he says the family lied, they were all meth addicts and he dismissed the case. The rest of the book is a primer on how to be a ghost hunter, what equipment is needed, how you should conduct an interview, etc. He goes into chapters of his past cases that discovered very little, his personal haunting which is a joke, how he doesn't really believe in a lot of this stuff and he criticizes all the paranormal groups on tv. Ansolutely NOT a scary story. It's a VERY expensive book on his techniques and his website. This is a hoax to get your money. It is a poorly written lie and Iam furious he was allowed to perpatrate this joke on the Amazon community. Do NOT buy this book unless you want to learn how to ghost hunt and even that is poorly written with bad advice. You are forewarned...look elsewhere.

Format: Paperback
The beginning of this book is a lecture on the writer's personal beliefs, which are contradictory and shallow. There is nothing terrifying in this book at all. Some shadows, some whispering, whoop de doo. There is also filler at the end from his earlier how to ghost hunt books. Contains tired disinformation about the Anneliese Michel case and pooh-poohs the Warrens, if that's your bag.

Mr. Newman has great enthusiasm for the subject matter, but unfortunately this book reads like a Freshman English assignment. I was amazed at the amateurish writing throughout, and I have never read a book so poorly written. The story he tells is not particularly compelling, but the author undermines any tension that might he might have built with his ineffectual writing.

I have mixed feelings regarding this book. Possibly because the title is misleading. I think I was expecting an in-depth book about an investigation that took place in the Mississippi Delta. Although it was part of the book, the book was mostly about the author's investigations as a whole and how he got started in investigating. I also found myself in conflict about the author's ideas and beliefs about investigating. I think this is because ideas about the paranormal are widely diverse and comes down to very personal experiences and feelings on the subject. I happen to highly regard the Warrens, and he makes remarks that are dismissive of their investigation styles, but I guess that's his right. I found it disappointing, however. All that said, I ended up enjoying the book in spite of everything. I think it was well written and I came to understand the author's more "scientific" approach to investigating. This does not mean I agreed with it entirely but he did a good job explaining his perspective and it was quite convincing. Bottom line, do not go into reading this book expecting an intriguing tale about one specific occurrence as the title seems to imply. If however you want to get someone's perspective on becoming a paranormal investigator, this is a good book.

Some very interesting facts and a good look at how a paranormal investigation is done. Certainly left me wanting to read more.

Review originally featured on Bookluvrs Haven.

As someone that not only is utterly fascinated with the paranormal, but also pretty creeped out by it, requesting `Devil in the Delta' to read from Netgalley was a no brainer. Before the slew of paranormal tv shows filled up my PVR box time, I was picking up every ghost hunting book I could get my hands on.

At one point in time, I even considered a friend's invitation to join his paranormal research and investigation group here in Toronto, but I have to admit that I am too much of a chicken s*** to face any potential activity face to face. I already find myself shivering under the covers almost every time I watch an episode of Ghost Adventures.

This novel was very interesting, and reads more like a ghost hunter's `How To' or more accurately, "What We Do". Written by a member of Paranormal Inc., he not only accounts one of his most unforgettable cases, but also the events that led to his fascination with obtaining evidence of life after death - his own experiences in his childhood home. You get some snippets of other memorable investigations, but this book centers around the Martin Residence primarily. The novel itself, though detailing true accounts of evidence, experiences and interviews of this case, is not really that scary. I got the distinct impression that it wasn't his intent to scare his audience either, but more to educate the reader on the realities of paranormal investigation.

I admit that I was hopeful for some hair-raising moments when I started reading this novel, and was a tad disappointed that I didn't get what I hoped for. In fact, immediately after ending this book, I watched an episode of Ghost Adventures to get that thrill.
