Book: The Devil Takes the Bodies by Walter Parks
|5 stars, 1 review on Amazon|
Walter Parksabout this book: The Devil Takes the Bodies is based on a true story. The Devil would take the bodies of women and girls just before they were buried in rural Mississippi early last century. The story was too compelling not to write it.
I believe anyone interested in hearing more about the Devil and reading a good mystery story will be interested.
I heard this story when I was a kid but did not believe it. Then about 9 years ago I heard it again from the grandson of one of the victims. I learned that it was real. I was especially intrigued with the part of how a man pretending to be the Devil has the encounter with the real Devil. I had to write it, but I got busy with other projects and only recently found time to publish it.
The title is literally what happened and the cover, I believe, conveys the notion of the story.
I learned a lot about how the beliefs of people result in what they see. The pretend Devil and his actions were real to the witnesses during that evil period in Mississippi. The visions and actions of the real Devil will never be forgotten.
