"Pray in Hebrew. Pray in English. Pray for me too, Richie. Keep on praying no matter what you see. And when the demon walks through that door, be my hands as well..."
For Fran Ruben, the sudden, mysterious death of her best friend, Elinor Friedman, was an omen that some malevolent force had taken control of her life.
There was no rational explanation for the icy "presence" in the house, for the strange visions, for the vanished mezuzahs, for the violent and macabre behavior of Elinor's young son, Richie, or for the chilling premonitions that stalked her heart.
Terrible, frightening things were happening to her and no one believed her. Was she losing her mind? Or was some, ruthless, evil force trying to destroy her?
Nothing would help her now. Except the power of God.
