William Peter Blatty has thrilled generations of readers with his iconic mega-bestseller "The Exorcist." Now Blatty gives us "Dimiter," a riveting story of murder, revenge, and suspense. Laced with themes of faith and love, sin and forgiveness, vengeance and compassion, it is a novel""in the grand tradition of Morris West's "The Devil's Advocate" and the Catholic novels of Graham Greene.
"Dimiter "opens in the world's most oppressive and isolated totalitarian state: Albania in the 1970s. A prisoner suspected of being an enemy agent is held by state security. An unsettling presence, though subjected to unimaginable torture he maintains an eerie silence. He escapes---and on the way to freedom, completes a mysterious mission. The prisoner is Dimiter, the American "agent from Hell."
The scene shifts to Jerusalem, focusing on Hadassah Hospital and a cast of engaging, colorful characters: the brooding Christian Arab police detective, Peter Meral; Dr. Moses Mayo, a troubled but humorous neurologist; Samia, an attractive, sharp-tongued nurse; and assorted American and Israeli functionaries and hospital staff. All become enmeshed in a series of baffling, inexplicable deaths, until events explode in a surprising climax.
Told with unrelenting pace, "Dimiter"'s compelling, page-turning narrative is haunted by the search for faith and the truths of the human condition. "Dimiter "is William Peter Blatty's first full novel since the 1983 publication of "Legion."
