Format: Unknown Binding
THE CASE AGAINST SATAN is about a priest and his bishop fighting to save a young girl possessed by the devil, complicated by the priest's doubting the devil really exists. The book is unfairly forgotten due to the fact the basic plot was used a decade later in THE EXORCIST. Russell's book is the better of the two, he did it first and without the excessive vulgarity of the later novel. The only weak point was the girl's Catholic bashing father and his overdramatic fate, but that doesn't detract much from the overall excellence of the book. It's too bad Russell spent more time editing than writing, for his short stories are also quite good, but hard to find.
