Description

"From the award-winning author of the acclaimed novel Poe comes an edgy and bone-chilling new novel. When Fiona Quinn is approached in a bar by a man who calls himself Scratch and claims he's the devil, she figures it's just some kind of post-modern ironic pickup line. But since he offers to pick up the tab, what the hell. A few drinks in, Scratch offers something much stranger--a wish in exchange for her immortal soul. Fiona has been wondering if her boyfriend is having an affair. What if she could become invisible, see what he's really up to? It can be done, but for a price--in addition to her soul, Fiona must perform a special favor for Scratch whenever the time comes. Fiona finds the whole thing so hilarious that she agrees. Bad idea. Not only does Fiona soon discover that she really was talking to the devil incarnate, but she's now been initiated into a bizarre support group of similar "dead souls"--those who have exchanged their immortal spirits on a whim, and must spend their waking hours in absolute terror of that favor eventually being called in...and what exactly is required from each of them in order to give the devil his due. With Fenn's "wicked raw and proudly untamed" talent (Bloody-Disgusting.com), Dead Souls is a terrifying venture to the dark side that will haunt you long after you've turned the last page"--
