Title[ edit ] The title is derived from The Bible , particularly The Gospel of Luke , which describes Jesus traveling in the land of Gadarenes where he encounters a man possessed by demons: Jesus asked him, saying, "What is your name? Luke Or the more common quote on the incident, sometimes called the Gerasene Demoniac , from The Gospel of Mark : And he asked him, "What is thy name? The slayings have a blasphemous theme to them, such as a child crucified and a priest being headless. There, Kinderman begins to find links between the victims and events in the previous novel, the exorcism of the twelve-year-old girl, Regan. Kinderman frequently alludes to his favorite novel , The Brothers Karamazov , especially when he goes off on a philosophical tangent. Plot summary[ edit ] The story opens with the discovery of a twelve-year-old boy who has been murdered and crucified on a pair of rowing oars.

I think I may have ran to the wrong direction Commencing on the 25th of August. I have indeed ran to the wrong direction. But not because the story spooked me. And that is why I was very disappointed and aggravated.
I was excited to read this. Very excited actually because I have read The Exorcist many years ago. I have read it because my brother was a clown to give it to me. Siblings are cruel like that and my brother? Little did he know that I held still holding the ultimate card one can have. And boy did I enjoy the results.
Back to the review. Watching the movie was an epic experience too. And this? What kept me going were: 1. Kinderman, the Homicide Detective was just Though, I must say that he was very sweet with his other half.
The name calling, the tone of his voice when he talks to her, warmth feeling cloaked me. This book started off when Kinderman was called in to solve who killed a 12 year old mute black kid that delivers newspapers.
Then followed by different killings and all these pointed to the works of a serial killer called Gemini. Nothing like this Or this happened at all. And what drove me up the wall was the demon had just daddy issues. There are many other things that are so wrong in this book too, to name one is: the science and applied principles.
Rating it: 1 star. My turn to choose a book for our BR. Be prepared.
