Superb horror novel about a young woman who becomes convinced that her unborn child has been targeted by a coven of witches for sacrifice to the Devil. With suspense so tightly wound it's funny, yet sublimely subtle and wittily observed. The characters are sharply drawn and believable throughout -- and yes that includes the surprising ending. Adapted first by Roman Polanski for his classic 1968 film, then as a two-part miniseries in 2014.
