Publisher's Summary

After you hear this story, you will understand you are responsible for your own darkness.  

The Devil shows up when you look for him. If you don’t prickle and jag with him, you may never meet him. He only comes when you call him and when asked. People who stay put and stay quiet do not interest him. He feeds on fear, hate, and other negative emotions and finds a fertile ground whenever someone plants these seeds.  

What is the deal with the Devil? In this audiobook, he is “harvesting” after an earthquake in which family members have been lost; he is a drop-in stranger impregnating a baby-starved mother, a pastor who fights his demons by seeing the Devil in his father’s face, reviving a love story from decades ago by threatening with an imminent lynch, and a celebrity who turns into an abusive nutjob.  

However, Tex has originally destroyed his own life when he left Jessica, the only woman he loved. Is there a redemption for him? Well, once you start teasing the Devil... 

Killing the Devil: A Collection of Short Stories explores the journeys of three people as they confront evil in its various forms. Each must choose between the wicked and the good. 

Paul Michael Peters is the author of Insensible Loss, Mr. Memory and Other Stories of Wonder, The Symmetry of Snowflakes, and Peter in Flight

Devil of a book

I didn't really know what to expect with this book as the synopsis didn't really tell you much about it but I thought I would give it ago anyway......and I enjoyed it, I think mainly because you didn't know what was going to happen.
The book is made up of five short stories and one character is present in three of the stories. They are tells of what can happen when evil is aloud to take over and along with a few twist make for a thought provoking listen.
This is the first time I have heard this narrator but he was easy to listen and the time few bye.

Devil is in the details

Some short stories summarize a little too much in order to stay short. Killing the Devil doesn’t do that. It paints a detailed picture that left me satisfied in the story arch. But, like any good short story, you want a sequel, or prequel, or spinoff. You just want more of the story. The spinoff stories in this book tie into the theme nicely and make you want to connect them together. I enjoyed this book as a quick listen.
