My review of The Demonologist by Andrew Pyper
Blurb from the back cover
The desperate search for his missing daughter will take a father to Hell and back…
Professor David Ullman is a world authority on demonic literature. So when offered a luxury trip to Venice to consult on a “phenomenon” he accepts, taking his daughter, Tess, with him.
But in Venice, things take a sinister, terrifying turn when a man speaks in the voice of David’s dead father, repeating the last words he ever spoke to his son. Then Tess disappears before his eyes.

My thoughts on the book
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Set mostly in Venice, it had lovely descriptions of the city and it's canals and buildings. There is a lot more to the book than what is implied by the blurb. Although primarily a story of possession, it reminds me a little of Dan Brown's The DaVinci Code as Professor Ullman tries to unravel the reason for the possession and how to get his daughter back.
Conclusion and rating
A definite winner, and one I would highly recommend. 5/5
