Eoin Colfer may be best known for his "Artemis Fowl" series, but I myself will highly recommend this book as well. Its a delightful romp between Heaven & Hell and all points in between. The protagonist is Meg Finn, a young woman who has found herself in the company of Belch, himself a seasoned juvenile delinquent. What was to have been an easy job, break into an old pensioners flat to find some money, ends up being the last job for both of them, alive that is. Belch has no redeemable qualities and is sent straight to hell where he finds himself with starlets, computer programmers and good ole Beelzebub himself. Meg is not such an easy person to figure out. Equal parts good and bad, she has one last chance to redeem herself--and ironically enough it is with the old pensioner she set out to rob. I genuinely enjoyed the skewed humor, and watching Meg develop a mutually inclusive fondness for the man she is trying to help.
