The Prince of Darkness has been given one last chance: he will be readmitted to the company of his fellow angels if he agrees to live out a human life. Highly sceptical, the Old Deal-maker negotiates a trial period. The body, though, turns out to be that of Declan Gunn, interrupted mid-suicide.
Glen Duncan's previous novels are HOPE and LOVE REMAINS. Until recently, he lived in Clerkenwell.
