Publisher's Summary

Expect one HELL of a Deal!

Shane’s a damned good salesman, but when a promotion that he spent years earning gets taken away only hours after getting it, he realizes that sometimes it doesn’t matter how good you are at what you do.

But that’s not good enough for Shane.

Confronting the person that he believes is responsible for his situation, Shane learns that there’s another, quieter, sales organization that he’s competing against:

Perdition Investments.

At Perdition Investments the products are whatever you want the most, but the cost is your Soul.

Shane has a chance to use his excellent skills in an entirely new way, but at what cost? Can you lose your soul by trading people for theirs? What’s the price for success?

Shane’s about to learn that, in these contracts, the Devil is in the Details…

Such a great story

This book was great. I wouldn't classify it as horror, unless you consider selling your soul to Satan as scary. It was more comical to me. The premise was great. A salesman takes a new job wth an unknown company, and finds out that his job is to convince people to sell their sould to Satan. In return, they can get everything and anything their heart desired. I wish this book had been longer because I had fun getting to know his new clients and their wished. For example, would you sell your soul to prevent a spouse from a painful death? Or money? Or fame? The new salesman breaks the rules and gets more than he expected. This book was fun.

Great Unique Twist on Selling Your Soul

I really enjoyed this story. I felt like the twist on hearing the salesman side of trying to buy a soul was quite unique and made for a really neat story. I found both the plot line and character development kept the story going full steam ahead and hated having to take breaks from listening to the story.

Learning how Shane manages his new job and what is going to happen next kept me on my toes. While this is classified a horror I felt like it was more a suspense/thriller as I didn't find anything horrific about the story, just the tension of the situations. I was all in on Shane becoming successful and was hoping for a happy story with him and Maggie. While Shane wasn't the best person, I liked how much he cared for his girlfriend and was willing to do anything to keep her safe. Watching him struggle with his relationships and new job felt real to me, even though I too struggle like Shane did with people having souls.

Joe Feldman-Barros started out the narration a little spotty and I wasn't sure how the whole story was going to unfold. Either he got better or he grew on me. Eventually I found myself enjoying his narration. Especially is wobbly voice for the nervous Al.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Definitely worth the read!

This is a great new and creative take on the old fables of selling your soul to the devil. Being in/around the sales world makes the story line that much more interesting and intreaguing. I listened to the audio version in my car, and repeatedly found myself sitting in my garage long after arriving home for the day.

The art of Wheeling and dealing

I read a lot of books, and Deals with the devil are one of my favorite subjects. Hell, when I was in high school I wrote a paper titled Selling your soulf for a profit in which I posited how the sacrifice of one person could be used to achieve greater things, such as world peace. Not so here, as this is a slick reinterpretation of the Faustian concept in which each soul carries an inherent value; a value that dictates just how much you can get in exchange for it. So a jerk isn't going to get world peace, but a saint could apply for just about anything they wanted so to speak. This is the brilliance of the book, and I loved it.

I recently read a very similar book called Fostering Faust, in which the MC has to achieve a "deal" quota. Here the protagonist, Shane, has to achieve a score of three souls a month in order to get what he wants, but there are rules. He can't just sign someone up who doesn't believe certain criteria, for example, and he faces manymoral quandries. The book is a fun and interesting take on what you would do to stay out of Hell yourself, just how far you would go, and how that would affect you in the long run. I loved every minute of this book.

One big reason for that love is the way in which Joe Feldman-Barros handled the narration. He has a nice raspy voice that you don't often hear, and he keeps the story paced nicely and adds a lot to the story. He has a nice low key delivery that is perfect for this story. He doesn't try to over play a scene or stomp on your throat to get his point made, he handles this like a smooth member of the rat pack, a drink in one hand, a cigerette in the other, and warbling his way into your brain.

If you are looking for something new, different, and a little chilling then this is perfect for you. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. Getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

A little predictable but awesome!

I really enjoyed this book.
It took me a while to get into it as some of the dialog is slurred, however, it actually adds to the charm of this book and it was worth to keep listening.
There are a few plot twists along the way that keep the story entertaining and fresh.
And yeah... what would you do if you could have everything!, for the low, low price of your soul?

What would you do to have everything you want?

Shane is faced with the Faustian dilemma but with a twist, buying souls has been farmed out to humans and since Shane is an excellent salesman he is being offered a job as a soul buyer. This is a traditional horror story that has a normal everyday man being forced into a horrific situation and how he chooses to deal with it.

This book was well written, I enjoyed the listen and highly recommend it to others.

Entertaining and Thought-Provoking Story

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This story is a unique twist on making a deal with the devil. The main character, Shane, is a really good salesman, maybe even a great salesman, who is only interested in chasing after creature comforts for himself -- although superficially Shane states he wants to be financially set and stable in order to be able to marry his girlfriend Maggie.

So, Shane makes a deal with the devil by working at Perdition Investments, which comes with a set of rules. I enjoyed the wittiness of the world building -- Perdition Investments. Very quickly Shane breaks the rules and now he has to pay the price. This is where the story really came alive and "unputdownable" for me. I audibly gasped at the ending.

While this book is a stand alone, there could easily be a sequel or two dealing with the other salesmen working at Perdition Investments -- and those salesmen who no longer work there. And, of course, what happens to Shane, Maggie and his friend Dale.

This book causes you to think about your own spirituality, good v. evil, greed, and what wish, if any, is your soul worth. This was an entertaining and thought-provoking story.
