The Demonologist_Pyper

“A smart, thrilling, utterly unnerving novel. Pyper’s gift is that he deeply respects his readers, yet still insists on reducing them to quivering children. I like that in a writer.”
–Gillian Flynn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Gone Girl

The Demonologist is that rare thing – a novel that is both genuinely terrifying and erudite.  The research is excellent and lightly worn, the pace and cleverness of the plot thrilling, one of the most exciting works of fiction I’ve read for some time.”
–Kate Mosse, author of Labyrinth, Sepulchre and Citadel
“As compelling and smoothly chilling a tale as you’ll find this year. The Demonologist shows an enormously gifted writer at the top of his game, producing a novel of eerie menace and unique depth. Those of us who write supernatural stories do not throw the names Ira Levin, William Peter Blatty, and Peter Straub around lightly. You’ll be hearing all three associated with Mr. Pyper soon, and all such comparisons are warranted, the highest praise I can offer.”

–Michael Koryta, New York Times Bestselling author of The Prophet

“Plenty of books claim to be scary, but this is genuinely terrifying, don’t-read-late-at-night stuff. Thrilling, compelling and beautifully written, The Demonologist makes Rosemary’s Baby feel like a walk in the park.”
–SJ Watson, author of Before I Go To Sleep

“Andrew Pyper’s The Demonologist is a smart psychological thriller served up straight with a twist of Milton. Part road trip, part family tragedy that touches on the nature of good and evil, it unfolds like a classical descent into hell, only played out against Interstates and cheap motels with vivid demons at every turn. Carefully crafted, claustrophobic, and deeply deeply creepy.”
–Simon Toyne, author of Sanctus

“Richly crafted, deliriously scary and compulsively page-turning from beginning to end. Imagine The Exorcist and The Da Vinci Code as penned by Daphne du Maurier. Don’t miss this one!”
–Jeffery Deaver, New York Times bestselling author

“Andrew Pyper’s satisfying prose propels a narrative sure to please readers with or without a dog-eared copy of Milton’s Paradise Lost on their shelves. If you’re looking for smart horror that chills without resorting to Grand Guignol, give The Demonologist a look.”
–Christopher Buehlman, author of the World Fantasy Award-nominated Those Across the River

“Smart and astonishing, Andrew Pyper has created a recurring nightmare for adults. The Demonologist holds a mirror to the reader and reveals the places where our deepest darkness lurks. Like Milton’s Paradise Lost, this is the story of the human condition, the fall, and the way back. I slept with the light on for nights, too obsessed to stop reading and too terrified to dream.”
–Brunonia Barry, New York Times and International Best Selling Author of The Lace Reader and The Map of True Places
