Prequel to The Exorcist tells of Father Lankester Marrin's first fight against demonic spirits.

Prequel to The Exorcist (1973). Lankester Merrin, an agnostic man making his trade as an archaeologist following World War II, travels to Kenya to investigate a Byzantine church seemingly buried in pristine condition.
