Overview

October 1988: Bob Cranmer buys a house in the Pittsburgh suburb he grew up in. He has no idea that his dream home is about to become his worst nightmare…

The Cranmers seemed fated to own the house at 3406 Brownsville Road. As a young boy, Bob had been drawn to the property, and, just when the family decided to move back to Brentwood, it went up for sale. Without a second thought, they purchased the house that Bob had always dreamed of owning.

But soon, the family began experiencing strange phenomena—objects moving on their own, ghostly footsteps, unsettling moaning sounds—that gradually increased in violence, escalating to physical assaults and, most disturbingly, bleeding walls. Bob, Lesa, and their four children were under attack from a malicious demon that was conjuring up terrifying manifestations to destroy their tight-knit household. They had two choices: leave or draw on their unwavering faith to exorcise the malicious fiend who haunted their home.

Now, Bob Cranmer recounts the harrowing true story of the evil presence that tormented his family and the epic spiritual war he fought to save everything he held dear…

    I enjoyed the book. I admit the author came off as a bit pompous but once it got going I was able to get past that and enjoyed it thoroughly.

    Not what i thought

    Just hit chapter 9 and am JUST NOW really reading about the "haunting". I bought this book the day it came out and was excited because I live in western pa myself and have heard about this house. The story takes awhile to talk about the haunting and the first 80 pages are mainly about the authors career.

    This was a poorly written book. It really isn't very interesting and I agree with the reviewer who said it's misleading.

    Misleading

    I'm only 1/4 of the way through this book and its a total snoozefest! All the author does is brag about his past political and religious endeavors. I'm from pittsburgh, so some of it was interesting based on my genuine interest of the area I live in, but I'm genuinely disappointed in the content.

    Worst book ever, the family is a mess just looking for a scapego

    Worst book ever, the family is a mess just looking for a scapegoat. A LOT left out of the book, just looking for ways to make money to pay off his kids mistakes to keep the house.
