Front Cover
Square One Publishers, Inc., 2001 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 248 pages

Evil in Our Midst provides a chilling glimpse of fifty dark angels, each of which represents a culture's greatest fears. Every chapter opens with a story that shares the legend of a demon, and then offers fascinating information on the culture that, in many cases, perpetuates this belief. For those who believe in these creatures, this book gives reason to fear the unknown. For those who do not believe in demons, it provides terrifying reading for a stormy night.
