In this story, when the devil comes to earth, he takes over the body of a man who is in the process of committing suicide. This is strong horror/crime fiction. It isn't a serial vampire story. It isn't romanticized in any way. The book starts with a young woman murdering her four year old son, but the book isn't about that murder--the murder and trial are the catalyst for the devil's actions.
From the book blurb:
Could the Devil, Himself be our ultimate hero?
This is the brutally told story of how the Devil, after countless millennia of strictly doing God’s will of punishing sinners in Hell, decides to lay down a Judgment of his own.
Compelled by the horrific case of a young mother who murdered her child and the lawyer who gets her set free, the Devil comes to Earth seeking justice. Lesser Demons, Patron Saints, and seemingly, God, Himself, conspire against him and then, the biggest complication of all: he meets Kelly, and the Devil, Himself falls in love.
But is Kelly, herself more than she seems?
