Oblivion the listener on a unique and frightening ride described in terrifying detail from this best-selling writer. In a dramatic showdown between the forces of good and evil, mankind's salvation rests in the hands of a burnt-out relic of a priest.
One snowy night in Chicago, Father Martin Delaney, a drunken ex-priest is torn away from his liquor by a well-dressed stranger. The man, who turns out to be Delaney's former altar boy, Jimmy Dodd, is now a lawyer. He wants Father Martin to perform an ancient exorcism ritual on a famous house located far south of the Windy City. Delaney, who was defrocked due to an unsanctioned bungled exorcism, has no desire to help his altar boy. But the young lawyer won't take no for an answer.
Arriving blindfolded in the middle of a raging blizzard at the special location in Washington, D.C., Father Martin soon realizes that the house that he has entered, a vast place of many rooms, is seriously haunted by a malevolent demon. And that he is the one man who can stop it from bringing about the destruction of the Earth.
Only then does Delaney realize that his meeting with Jimmy was not merely by chance. The nameless building is the White House, which has been possessed for hundreds of years by a menacing specter. As the priest tries to learn the spirit's motives, he discovers a dark secret of American history.
Father Martin is an ordinary man, a man of doubts and fears, a man who has failed once in banishing a demon to the dark pits of hell. Now, he must stand against the army of darkness with only his wavering faith to support him.
