Jesus asked the man his name, and he answered, "Legion, for we are many."  Mark 5:9

Few works of fiction have ever caught the imagination of so vast a public as did The Exorcist.

Now William Peter Blatty has written a novel that transcends The Exorcist in suspense, searing power and intensity.  A young boy, a deaf-mute, is found horribly murdered in a mock crucifixion.  The kindly, aging detective assigned to the case sees it not only as a crime -- one that calls for all his skill and intuition as an investigator -- but as part of a larger and more baffling mystery:  whether or not a good god can exist if He tolerates such monstrous evil.  Is the murderer the elderly woman who witnessed the crime?  A neurologist who can no longer bear the pain life inflicts on its victims?  A psychiatrist with a macabre sense of humor and a guilty secret?  A mysterious mental patient, locked in silent isolation?

As Lieutenant Kinderman follows a bewildering trail that links all these people, he confronts a new enigma at every turn.  Why does each victim suffer the same dreadful mutilations?  Why are two of the victims priests?  Is there a connection between these crimes and another series of murders that took place twelve years ago -- and supposedly ended with the death of the killer?

To say that Legion is the work of a master storyteller is to state the obvious; it is a novel of breathtaking energy and suspense.  But more than this, it is an extraordinary journey into the uncharted depths of the human mind and the most agonizing questions of the human condition.

The answers are revealed in a climax so stunning that it could only have been written by the author of The Exorcist, William Peter Blatty.
