about this book

Remembering Satan is a lucid, measured, and absolutely riveting inquest into the 1988 case of Paul Ingram, a respected deputy sheriff in Olympia, Washington, and his family’s accusations of sexual abuse against him—accusations which eventually revealed Ingram’s participation in bizarre satanic rites involving his whole family and other members of the sheriff’s department. The case eventually destroys the family and engulfs a small town while captivating an America obsessed by rumors of a satanic underground. Remembering Satan gives us what is at once, a psychological detective story and a domestic tragedy about what happens when modern science is subsumed by our most archaic fears.

“A fantastic case reverberating with questions about the nature of memory itself. . . . A thoughtful and gripping book.” —The New York Times

“This is a cautionary tale of immense value, told with rare intelligence, restraint and compassion. Remembering Satan catapults Wright to the front rank of American journalists.” —Newsweek
