Following the sinful shenanigans of Hellcorp and The Man in the Dark, the hellishly handsome Devil turns his attention to the most frightening of all holidays … Halloween.
Jonathan Whitelaw has written a unique, one-off special tale starring Ol’ Nick himself – and set in the wild Wild West. After lending a hand to a down-on-his-luck prospector, The Devil returns thirty years later to collect his debt – but as ever when The Devil is involved, nothing ever goes to plan.
A prequel to the bestselling HellCorp, this enthralling and very funny tale is the perfect read for Halloween and for fans of Ben Aaronovitch, Christopher Fowler and Benedict Jacka.
All proceeds from every sale of The Deal will be donated to Samaritans.

This is a great wee Halloween read. Full of humour and wit. Exactly how you’d expect The Devil to be. Enticing, charming, witty and almost unstoppable.
As this is a book by an author I like and it was for charity there was no question about whether I’d buy it, or not.
It’s a great observation on people and what they think they can do, if they think there’s nobody watching. But is there. Well, read this and you might just think twice. Or you might laugh yourself silly at the cleverness of this novella.
