Salem VI

Having stepped off the fast track of primetime network
television news, John Andrews has chosen a quieter life
as editor of The Salem News, a small paper in a quiet
New England town. Life is perfect until Andrews’ wife
is killed in a tragic accident. After several years of
trying to numb the pain with alcohol, Andrews is visited
by the spirit of a long dead ancestor who opens a door
to a shocking family history. After he experiences a
surreal glimpse into the past, Andrews must confront
the question of whether he is losing his mind or whether
for several hundred years his ancestors have been
engaged in a secret battle with a coven that worships
Satan. Fueled by the need to understand whether his
wife's death was an accident, as he had always believed,
or something far more sinister, Andrews, along with his
beautiful assistant editor, risk everything to discover a
truth so horrifying it threatens to destroy everything and
everyone he knows and loves.
