It's not every day that a book can come creeping out of veritably nowhere and shake me to the core like this one did. I applaud the author for 'taking it there' when a lot of other folks in the genre won't."

"The Devil Stood Up is brutally honest and Christine Dougherty pulls no punches. Perfectly balanced, the violent scenes are very violent and the sensitive scenes are anything but sappy. Her characters are fully alive with dialogue that is spot-on and in Carrie Walsh, Christine has created one of the scariest characters I've read in quite a while. The Devil Stood Up shows us that we don't really need to devil inside of us to do the bad things we do, we're pretty much capable of doing terrible deeds all on our own. This is a refreshing take on good vs. evil.
I highly recommend The Devil Stood Up."

"A word of warning - this novel is not for the easily squeamish. The murder the child is brutal and extremely disturbing. That being said, Christine has created a brilliant story with characters that come alive. Some you'll hate and some you'll love. The story twists and turns and keeps you guessing."
