Review

...a little more self-control, he could easily give the likes of Pratchett
and Rankin a run for their money. -- www.infinityplus.co.uk , Reviews

...the characterisation is strong and consistent... well-written and

Devil and Saint have their hidden agendas, but are gradually forced into a dubious partnership. When not trying to destroy or save each other, they have to confront, inter alia: the impeccably mannered Beast of the Apocalypse; bones with a grudge; treachery by Satan's own ministers; rebellion by the original cannibalistic inhabitants of Hell; lovelorn souls in vats in Limbo; a rigged Second Judgement; conscience-stricken serpents; the gurgling (and deadly) Immaculate Infant; the Virgin Mary with her hideous secret. And at the back of both their minds is the memory of a certain woman ...
