Michael met his wife, started a family, he never wanted for anything, he was happy, they were happy. Or so he had thought. But the scene he returns home to paints a different picture, and he is left to question why, agonising that the souls of his wife and child are burning in hell. Lost to his despair he seeks refuge in the bottle. But then a figure appears, he claims to be the devil and has a proposition for Michael, one in which he can save his family from eternal torment.
Written in the first person the reader is encouraged to view things through the eyes of this long suffering man as he attempts to save his family from the clutches of hell. It is a good, and short read, certainly worth a look if you enjoy tortured souls, murder and manipulation.
