    Uttered by the abusive father of a nine-year-old girl, that phrase ended Jack’s career as a police negotiator and has been haunting him ever since. Now that he is a struggling private detective, those words return with a vengeance when he inherits a mansion - and some terrifying information. Apparently Jack’s soul was sold at birth, and a devil will come to claim it on his thirty-third birthday just weeks away. It’s a hard pill to swallow, given that Jack doesn’t believe in hell (heaven, either).

    Decent narrator, crap story.

    What a chunk of crap. Badly overwritten with thin characters and such a generic occult mythology that I wonder if the author did any research at all. ..Show More »

It comes with a warning that Nightingale’s soul was sold at birth and a devil will come to claim it on his 33rd birthday – just three weeks away.

When everyone Jack talks to about his sister dies horribly, he realises that someone, or something, is determined to keep them apart. If he's going to save his sister, he's going to have to do what he does best - negotiate. But any negotiation with the forces of darkness comes at a terrible price.

But Jack and his sister have been separated since birth. How can he save someone he’s never met?

The Order will stop at nothing to protect their secrets and Nightingale realises that there is nothing he can do to protect himself.
