Publisher's Summary

A Richard and Judy Book Club selection.For Gideon Mack, faithless minister, unfaithful husband, and troubled soul, the existence of God, let alone the Devil, is no more credible than that of ghosts or fairies - until the day he falls into a gorge and is rescued by someone who might just be Satan.


What the Critics Say

A Richard and Judy Book Club selection."Gideon's sly unreliability is cloaked by Robertson's mastery of language and command of the elements of fiction; the combination is addictive and captivating." (Publishers Weekly)
"More a discussion of humanity than divinity, it will capture and hold the reader's attention long past the last page." (Booklist)
