Overview

Deliver Us from Evil: A New York City Cop Investigates the Supernatural by Ralph Sarchie, Lisa Collier Cool

Demonic possession. Exorcism. Haunted Houses. Satanic Rituals.

For most people this is the stuff of nightmares, horror movies, folklore, and superstition. For New York City police Sergeant Ralph Sarchie, it's as real—and dangerous—as midnight patrol . . .

A sixteen-year NYPD veteran, Ralph Sarchie works out of the 46th Precinct in New York's South Bronx. But it is his other job that he calls "the Work": investigating cases of demonic possession and assisting in the exorcisms of humanity's most ancient—and most dangerous—foes. Now he discloses for the first time his investigations into incredible true crimes and inhuman evil that were never explained, solved, or understood except by Sarchie and his partner. Schooled in the rituals of exorcism, and an eyewitness to the reality of demonic possession, Ralph Sarchie has documented a riveting chronicle of the inexplicable that gives a new shape to the shadows in the dark.

In Deliver Us from Evil, he takes readers into the very hierarchy of a hell on earth to expose the grisly rituals of a Palo Mayombe priest; a young girl whose innocence is violated by an incubus; a home invaded by the malevolent spirit of a supposedly murdered nineteenth-century bride; the dark side of a couple who were literally, the neighbors from hell; and more. Ralph Sarchie's revelations are a powerful and disturbing documented link between the true-crime realities of life and the blood-chilling ice-grip of a supernatural terror.

This book is an amazing recounting of some of the most terrifying, brutal, and honest demonic encounters i have ever read. Sarchie exemplifies what it is to be a good cop and a good person, it is clear from this book. I recommend this book to anybody, Christian or not.

I bought this book after seeing the movie(be warned they are nothing alike) and was pleasantly surprised by a much more realistic relatingof events. I was affected enough by Sarchie's no b.s. writing of terrifying events that I actually found myself praying for the people involved in his stories, both the Job stories andthe Work stories. I found myself thinking about my lapse in church-going (thoughnot in faith) and praying in a manner more intense than in many years, so Sarchie's goal of bringing others closer to God has been accomplished in this case. I thank him for sharing.

I have told this to many people. I believe most everything in this book. It is hard not to. It is told in the same conviction that he brings to his "work". But lets jus say half of the book is for real, for arguements aske. It is one hell of a read. I knocked this book out in a single sitting 300 pages in a matter of hours. Highly reccomend.t

This is an excellent book. It held my lnterest to the point I couldn't put the book down. It is a book that should be read but it may be too scary for some because it is true. The author does a good job explaining the cases involve and the rites of exorcism. Most informative and a good read.

This book held my interest the whole time and it was hard to put down. Only one complaint was that the stories seemed to repeat the same information over and over and sometimes became confusing on which story he was telling because he would interrupt one story with another then go back to telling the first story. All in all I did like this book and would recommend reading it to those who are interested in this subject.

I love ghost stories, but was very upset when i discovered that this is the exact same book by another name. Beware the Night copyright of 2001. I guess since a movie came out they wanted to cash in on it. So changed the name and publish date. Shame shame If you read all ghost stories out there you know where i am coming from. I still have my paperback of the original would love my money back for this one

Anyone who is interested - This book is exactly the same as Ralph Sarchie's first book, Beware the Night, (which was FANTASTIC). But, it's the same book, published under another name. THE SAME. Go read it's description. I'll wait.

Entertaining but at times Sarchie goes off on a tangent. All in all, good to read once and then archive it.

I was disappointed with this book. The author writes like everything he says is well known facts. Comes off like he is preaching to us. Not enjoyable.
