Publisher's Summary

Winner of the African American Literary Award for Fiction, Essence® best-selling author Victoria Christopher Murray delivers a cautionary tale about debt and the dangers of an overly tempting offer. Married at 17, Adam and Evia Langston have worked their way up from rags to riches. But as they are enjoying all the trappings of their success, a financial downturn leaves them teetering on the brink of disaster. And that’s when Evia’s boss makes the Langstons a fivemillion dollar offer they can’t refuse.

    "good story, like a roller coaster ride..."

    I enjoyed the story. It was quite entertaining, but the ending could've been better. Worth listening to.

    "clearly this isn't real life"

    I understand this is fiction but I expected it to be something in here that normal people could relate to. 5 million 2 million...even 1 million....I'd sell everything but my soul. the way the main character is handling the situation is ridiculous. I get that this is a holy book but the character is too weak. I wish this was somewhat believable.

    "Evia was annoying"

    The book was mostly about Evian thinking to herself. Needed more drama. But was OK

    "Stay in God's Will!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would definitely recommend this audiobook. Even though I am not married, this is reminder to all of us not to succumb to life's hard blows. As a Christian, I believe we have to remember to live by the morals, values and Godly wisdom we've been taught. If we take our eyes off our goals and Godly wisdom, we'll allow the Devil to slide right in and devour.


    What other book might you compare The Deal, the Dance, and the Devil to and why?

    Well the Bible would compare to this novel. It is definitely a story based out of many issues that are taught in God's Word or at least it is an example of why we need to follow God's word and will.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Spain’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have heard her voice before and as always she's on point!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Money can only take you so far but your yes to the Devil will last you a lifetime.


    Any additional comments?

    Good book, well written and narrated and a great lesson to us all about decisions and motives.

    "Awesome"

    I was a little skeptical about reading the book because I really don't need a lot of the Christian-based Blix but this book was great

    "A real eye opener with an interesting twist."

    This book was definitely a faith-tester. When times gets tough, so do the decisions we must make. When in doubt, trust God regardless of what it looks like in the natural. That was my take away lesson.
