Synopsis: Irene Kelly is a reporter with a fierce integrity. Detective Frank Harriman is her lover and friend. Now they're both about to be plunged into political hellfire when a ruthless politician rocks a race for district attorney with a stunning allegation: his opponent's son is in the clutches of a satanic cult. The charge takes a fatal turn when a local woman is brutally murdered, and the grisly crime scene bears unholy implications. Tracking the clues takes Irene behind the closed doors of an isolated home for troubled youths, where obscuring the truth is only part of a stranger's diabolic game. To win it, Irene will have the devil to pay.

Profanity Violence Sexual Content
Fair amount of profanity during dialog. Beatings, stabbings, and murders There is an attempted rape.
Characterization Plot Overall Rating
A page-turner! Irene Kelly is a genuinely likable heroine, and intelligent and amusing too. It starts out looking like it's going to be all about Satanism, but that turns out to be a red herring. Does contain discussion of witchcraft, but not in a particularly condoning way.
