Father Damien Karras: 'Where is Regan'
Regan MacNeil: 'In here. With us'.
The terror begins unobtrusively. Noises in Regan's room, an odd smell, the displacement of furniture, an icy chill. Easy explanations are offered. Then frightening changes start in the eleven-year-old girl. Medical tests shed no light on her symptoms, but it is as if a different personality has invaded the child.
Father Damien Karras, a Jesuit priest, is called in. Is it possible that a demonic force is present in the child? Exorcism is the only answer...

"The Exorcist" is the terrifying story of an 11-year-old girl possessed by an overwhelming demonic force.Review:
Well researched, written in a literate style, it comes to grips with the forces of evil incarnate, and there are not many readers who will be unmoved. The Exorcist is as superior to most books of its kind as an Einstein equation is to an accountant's column of figures ( New York Times Book Review)
Wonderfully exciting ( Newsweek)
Immensely satisfying...holds its audience in a vice-like grip ( LA Times)
A tremendous novel...Fast, powerful and completely gripping ( Sunday Express)
