Publisher's Summary

In 1988, Ericka and Julie Ingram began making a series of accusations of sexual abuse against their father, Paul Ingram, who was a respected deputy sheriff in Olympia, Washington. At first the accusations were confined to molestations in their childhood, but they grew to include torture and rape as recently as the month before. At a time when reported incidents of "recovered memories" had become widespread, these accusations were not unusual. What captured national attention in this case is that, under questioning, Ingram appeared to remember participating in bizarre satanic rites involving his whole family and other members of the sheriff's department. 

Remembering Satan is a lucid, measured, yet absolutely riveting inquest into a case that destroyed a family, engulfed a small town, and captivated an America obsessed by rumors of a satanic underground. It follows the increasingly bizarre accusations and confessions, as well as the claims and counterclaims of police, FBI investigators, and mental-health professionals. 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.

Yikes

This is a very disturbing book. People are insane. It’s well written and the narration is okay. The content is both fascinating and repulsive. It was hard to listen to SO MUCH sexual abuse detailed.

A Dangerous Recurring Phenomenon

After researching the European witch hunts extensively, I was struck to realize the Satanic Panic is really the same phenomenon happening once again. Now with Qanon it's resurgent yet again. The process of confabulated stories of vast Satanic conspiracies is the same with minor variations. (Why don't they fly on broomsticks anymore? 🤔) Fascinating subject, but the writing could have been more engaging. I would have preferred something more high level and not so much about a single case.
