A sixteen-year NYPD veteran, Ralph Sarchie works out of the 46th Precinct in New York's south Bronx. But it is his other job that he calls "the Work": investigating cases of demonic possession and assisting in the exorcisms of humanity's most ancient--and most dangerous--foes. Now he discloses for the first time his investigation into incredible true crimes an inhuman evil that were never explained, solved, or understood except by Sarchie and his partner. Schooled in the rituals of exorcism, and an eyewitness to the reality of demonic possession, Ralph Sarchie has documented a riveting chronicle of the inexplicable that gives a new shape to the shadows in the dark.
In Beware the Night, he takes readers into the very hierarchy of a hell on earth to expose the grisly rituals of a Palo Mayombe priest; a young girl whose innocence is violated by an incubus; a home invaded by the malevolent spirit of a supposedly murdered ninteenth-century bride; the dark side of a couple who were literally, the neighbors from hell; and more. Ralph Sarchie's NYPD revelations are a powerful and disturbing documented link between the true-crime realities of life and the blood-chilling ice-grip of a supernatural terror.

Creepy, engaging, frightening, riveting...that is how I would describe this book. It also made me reassess my relationship with God and go to church regularly again. Thank you Mr. Sarchie.
Very well written, compelling stories and great explanations of "the work" and how it differs from "paranormal investigation". I have had an issue in my life and I will definitely be in touch with Mr. Sarchie to seek his counsel.
Not what I expected at all! Ralph Sarchie is not only blunt but he's sincere in his dedication to saving lives & souls.
This is not a HORROR book as the title might suggest.This is almost a journal of this mans journey from his return to his faith,to his introduction to the paranormal & his dedication to battling evil & determination to share his love of the lord with the world. Reading this book has given me the desire to renew my faith. Thank you Mr.Sarchie & Lisa Collier Cool for having the courage to write this book.
