Someone is killing the children. It is evil, of course. It is murder. But some see it as an evil from which only good will come. Some believe that only through the sacrifice of young innocents can the world be saved. No one must be allowed to stop this pattern of deaths before it is completed.
In this gripping novel of love and possession, anthropologist Cal Jamison searches for the key to these ritual child-slayings, and unwittingly he and his seven-year-old son Chris stumble into the nightmare realm that lies beneath the surface of modern-day Manhattan. It begins with Chris's seemingly innocent discovery of a strange seashell in Central Park. And step by irreversible step, Cal comes closer to the truth, the ultimate horror -- learning the bloody details of these bizarre child-slaughters and uncovering the existence of a worldwide mysterious cult, which for its millions of followers is the one, the only, the true faith. The Religion.
In time, a beautiful and seductive woman, Torey Halowell, enters Cal's life. She is the first woman he has been able to love since his wife's tragic death, and she becomes his passport into a world of forbidden knowledge. But the more he probes, the deeper Cal himself is drawn into the religion's spell -- until this fiendish force takes control of his life. Only then is Cal allowed to discover that Chris -- the son he treasures above all else on earth -- may be in danger. How strong is his love compared to the potency of the overwhelming evil gripping him? This is the chilling question, and waiting for Cal is the hair-raising answer, as sinister powers demand he participate in the ceremony to kill Chris.
The Religion is a compelling chiller that will plunge you into a subterranean labyrinth of bizarre horror and terror -- an experience of unholy fascination.
