For those who have lost a loved one to that liar and fraud named Death.

So reads the dedication of William Peter Blatty's Finding Peter, a deeply moving memoir that tests the bounds of grief, love, and the soul. Blatty, the bestselling author and Oscar Award–winning screenwriter of The Exorcist, lived a charmed life among the elite stars of Hollywood.

His son Peter, born over a decade after The Exorcist, grew from an apple-cheeked boy into an "imposing young man with a quick, warm smile." But when Peter died very suddenly from a rare disorder, Blatty's world turned upside down.

As he and his wife struggled through their unrelenting grief, a series of strange and supernatural events began occurring—and Blatty became convinced that Peter was sending messages from the afterlife.

A true and unabashedly personal story, Finding Peter will shake the most cynical of readers—and it will remind those in grief that our loved ones do truly live on.

Book started off interesting and comical. Then suddenly I just lost interest. I was however interested in his experiences with messages from past loved ones so I skipped chapters reading what interested me, skimming over lots and finally got to the 4th part. It was okay but he did receive some beautiful messages even though I was a bit disappointed overall.
