To vanquish the Devil, Bishop Crimmings recruits Father Gregory Sargent, a younger priest with a taste for modern ideas and brandy.As the two men fight not just the darkness tormenting Susan but also one another, a soul-chilling revelation lurks in the shadows one that knows that the darkest evil goes by many names.
