    DescriptionAt once a true psychological detective story, a family tragedy and a mordant comedy about what happens when modern psychiatry succumbs to hysterias as old as Salem. This is the story of Paul Ingram, a sheriff's deputy in Olympia, Washington, whose grown daughters suddenly accused him of having molested them in the course of demonic rites.

    Review quote
    "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
    Flap copy
    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. As it follows the increasingly bizarre accusations and confessions, 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.
