The author of this text reveals a disaffected Catholic underground made up of people who see today's post-Vatican II church as a disaster zone. Within this subculture, he discovers several distinct factions - ranging from militant supporters of Rome to apocalyptic groups that take refuge in miraculous apparitions of the Virgin Mary - and provides personal profiles of their members. "The Smoke of Satan" is a map of this little-known cultural terrain.
