Summary
"A tale of horror set in a small northern Arizona town, this first novel begins with the desecration of an Episcopal church and the disappearance of the priest and his family. Soon, other churches are defiled with obscenities written in goat's blood. Two goat farmers are killed and mutilated after their flocks are similarly destroyed. A young boy tells sheriff Jim Weldon of a dream in which he saw the death of the priest's family at the hands of demons. Meanwhile, struggling young writer Gordon Lewis and his pregnant wife, Marina, fear that she will succumb to the epidemic of miscarriages afflicting other women in the community. When the couple goes to Phoenix for prenatal tests, Gordon is warned about the coming of Satan by Brother Elias, an itinerant preacher. As evil events escalate, Brother Elias tells the sheriff, Gordon and the new Episcopal priest, psychic Father Donald Andrews, that only the four of them can save the town, but at considerable cost to themselves. Little convincingly depicts apocalyptic events." -- Copyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc
