Publisher's Summary

From the terrifying case file that inspired the film The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It.

From this New York Times best-selling author comes a shocking case of demonic possession, exorcism, and murder starring the legendary demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren, who battled the Amityville Horror and whose real-life case files inspired The Conjuring Universe, which includes The Conjuring, Annabelle, and The Nun films.

It was one of the most sensational murder trials of the 1980s. When Arne Cheyenne Johnson stabbed an acquaintance to death with a five-inch folding knife, Johnson presented one of the most shocking legal defenses in history: not guilty by virtue of demonic possession. As the press put it, “the Devil made me do it”.

Johnson’s shocking story began months earlier, when his girlfriend’s 11-year-old brother, David, encountered a spectral figure looming at the foot of the bed and then started showing telltale signs of demonic possession. David suddenly spoke in Latin, levitated, and suffered beatings at the hands of an invisible demon. After a team of Catholic priests failed to drive the demon out, the case was taken up by Ed and Lorraine Warren. The Warrens had fought demons across the globe, but the Connecticut Devil would be one of their greatest challenges, and perhaps their most deadly.

Different from Movie

I loved the movie, but the book doesn't mention the lady and the old man from the movie. a lot of differences.

I wish I had listened to this before the movie.

This detailed explanation of the events that happened was such a great story. I know Hollywood likes to exaggerate, but the movie definitely made me think that the family was in the wrong place at the wrong time, but really it was more than just a random curse.

Very Informative!

I recently watched a documentary on this case on Discovery+ that was not nearly as detailed as this book. I was shocked that the police and the prosecution really tried to railroad this guy when they didn't have the evidence to change and convict him. As a person that suffered from a demonic haunting I can only feel for someone whose experience was much worse than mine. Great book !!! I recommend it to anyone with a interest in the paranormal! Listen and enjoy!

very good

this was a very interesting read. other books on the Warren's have been narrated better, but this did keep my attention. The set up of the book was great because I wanted to finish so I could know the whole story. I would recommend 👌

Creepy and straight to the point.

It was very disturbing and flat out creepy. I had to put it down a couple of times. Rather you choose to believe it or call it a hoax it is up to you. The story is not ment for the faint of heart. If you liked The Conjuring movies then you may want to give this book a try. It really does make you think if something is really out there.

Fascinating & Frightening

Truly terrifying, horrifying, scary, & truly real, & honestly genuine. A testament, to the fact, that evil spirits, are real, & everywhere, throughout the world, all of the time.
