William Peter Blatty has thrilled generations of readers with his iconic mega-best seller 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 story 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.

Listener Opinions

    " I liked this book, although at times I did find it a bit difficult to follow, but it was worth it to keep treading water, and all was explained in the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katherine | 2/7/2014

    " No where near as good as Legion, which is what I had hoped. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 John Hanscom | 2/2/2014

    " What a horrible waste of paper. The first half was so plodding as to be dull. The second half got exciting, but, rather than let the action resolve the mystery, all action stopped, and a bunch of people around a table told us what happened. None of the so-called "spiritual" issues were resolved at all; they were just thrown out randomly and carelessly. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maggie | 1/27/2014

    " I was very confused throughout the whole book. My Dad loved this book tho, and my sister thought it was good as well. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rob Weeks | 1/26/2014

    " Just awful. Was this a sequel to something else? I kept feeling like there was a whole lot that I was missing or not understanding because I was supposed to read something else first. If there was a previous book, then I HATE when they don't warn you of that in a conspicuous manner. If there was not a previous book, then this one sucked. It was not scary or thrilling. But it was incoherent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen | 1/19/2014

    " By the author of "The Exorcist" I read it on a day--kept me engrossed and I didn't suspect the conclusion. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marti | 1/6/2014

    " a miserable, overdone, self-important, disappointing mess. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chad | 1/5/2014

    " Difficult to follow, disjointed and boring pretty much sums it up. Disappointing compared to the Exorcist. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Juliann | 12/25/2013

    " My initial thought was three stars but after I finished, I really felt that I had rushed thru it so I could read it (if that makes any kind of sense). So, I sat down and reread it a few days later. Appreciated it much more the second time around. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shelley | 12/17/2013

    " About 1/4 of the way through the book. It's an ugly tale--graphic torture--beautifully told. Mystical & charismatic main character who may be too beautiful and good to be around or may be a master killer or both. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Staceyj | 10/20/2013

    " I did not enjoy this book. It jumped around so much it was hard to keep up. Plus it was slow and boring and none of the characters grabbed me and pulled me into the story. The whole I'm reading I'm wondering what the point is. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 P๏€cɨℓiÄ…* L | 8/8/2013

    " Extremely boring.... and not much of a story... .and u donno what the heck is happening till the very last 80, if not 50, pages of the book. Also, don't like how the "mystery" unfold..... mostly via interviews and old letters..... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Wyndie | 12/28/2011

    " I wanted to enjoy this novel. It sounded very interesting, but the storyline never fully materialized. I understand it was intended to be a mystery, but the reader didn't engage me enough to really care about all the details. Very dull, dry and overall waste of time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven Percifield | 6/18/2011

    " I lost myself in the serpentine plot but--in the end--it all came together. Wonderfully written despite the confusing story-line. "

    " International assassin finds religion as only Blatty can tell the tale. "

    " It was interesting. I really wanted to like this book, but it fell flat. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deena Scintilla | 4/4/2011

    " Well even after reading this, I'm still not sure if I liked it or not, so I feel a "2" is fair. I DID finish rather than abandon it so that says something. If asked to actually explain the plot, I'm not sure I could. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Albu | 2/10/2011

    " I dont like this, is boring and dont have nothing cool, i stopped to read when i reach 100 pages "

    " This book is full of quirky characters whose dialogue is quite funny at times. So many of the characters had names starting with the letter "M" that I had to remind myself who they were.

    I guessed the identity of Wilson partway through the 2nd half of the book. "
