From the author that brought you to tears with Bayou Jesus comes Seven Devils, a Gothic masterpiece of the jungle’s darkest heart.
The only God Simon Duchane knows is dead, murdered by those who believe they alone know Him. Devastated, Simon tucks his God’s ashes into a box and wanders aimlessly—lost.
Joining six missionaries intent on carrying the Good Word to the largest jungle on earth, Simon soon discovers there’s a fine line between heaven and hell and he’s trapped somewhere between.
Docked for repairs near Devil’s Island, Simon falls under the spell of a prostitute who wields her sexuality the way he intended to wield religion over her. How can he help her find God when even he doesn’t know where He is, when the only one real to him is kept in a box? Soon, even the line between God and desire blurs. Can he redeem himself by saving her?
But when heaven meets hell and the sacred grows profane, Simon must somehow survive the unthinkable to find the God who sentenced them all to damnation. (178 pages)
