Author Joie Albrecht has made a commendable effort to bring this gut-wrenching story to life and many of the incidents related were told me by Lena and Debbie themselves. It is a roller-coaster read and I can vouch for much of the content, however I can understand why some readers thought it was made up, especially when the author attempts to recreate Juanita's ritual, which of course is fictional. When fact and fiction are interspersed a logical reader has doubt about the complete story. I still possess some pictures I took of the slashed mattress after the entity's attack on the sleeping couple. Lena was a lovely Italian lady and Debbie was absolutely devoted to her mother in law. The whole family had been through absolute hell when I first met them. I remember stating that the elderly father Bill Sr. was the epicenter for the disturbance. I went to evening dinner with the family and Bill Sr. asked me to drop him at the house in my small Honda car. It was a foul and windy night but I agreed to do this. On our way back to the haunted house a wooden sign suddenly blew across the road and almost smashed into my windshield. This was a reinforcement of my belief that the elderly father was causing the trouble and was riddled with guilt and anger. I suspected that he had had a relationship with Juanita the housekeeper who had performed the original Santeria ritual calling up the entity. She was under the impression that he would divorce his wife and marry her so that she would not have to return to her native country. When her services were no longer needed she performed the ritual in an act of desperation.
If you can get over the fictionalized opening and a few excesses in description, this is a very readable book about a mostly taboo subject of demonic possession. I permitted my name to be used as I knew that Debbie was totally sincere in wishing to bring this account before the public. Unbelievable as it sounds I did actually witness the carved triangles in the carpets and the entity's writing on the bathroom mirror. Belief in demons is definitely not for the twenty-first century mind because of our scientific orientation, but from my various visits and interviews with family members I can reassure the reader that most of these events really did occur. I felt particularly sorry for the poor dogs that suffered from the entity's cruelty. It left me with the strong feeling that evil is very much alive and all of us should watch our thoughts and actions so that we do not attract the wrong kind of influences. As an addition to our understanding of these things A Deadly Haunting is a valuable contribution.
makes it a worthwhile purchase is the story itself - and for that, it gets five stars. This isn't about
your run-of-the-mill, filthy-mouth demon who does terrible things just for the sake of doing them. This
demon has an agenda and he makes that frighteningly clear in the messages he writes on the mirror. If you want to
curl up on the side of your bed and share in a nightmare that you can't escape from, you won't be disappointed.
I can't wait for the movie.
Pay NO heed to the "Reviews" of those who didn't read the book but are going soley on a radio interview on Coast to Coast AM. They seem to miss the point that not everything can be covered in a radio interview, it is publicity for a book, and in my opinion a well written documentation of a riveting story.

As to skeptics ... I've heard people make remarks like "If this really happened, why would they wait 25 years to talk about it?" After you read the story, you understand why it was so hard for them to go public. Additionally, their dilemma wasn't a secret - they brought a lot of people in to try and help - including famous people in the paranormal field. And there are photos/evidence from their case as well.
Thank you to the writer and the family for telling this story ... It's a great book!
It's little wonder why the Moffit family kept quiet for so many years. With luck no other family will have to suffer such a nightmarish haunting as this.
Also, Hollywood pick this up!
