Locked away incarcerated below 1000 feet of ice held in a remote dark-black-box container, The government holds the biggest secret ever kept from man….the devil. It was this film-like introduction of the man, his accomplishments, and his life of inflicting chaos and death upon his associates that pulled me into this cleverly narrated novel.

This idea of the devil and how he made his way thru the world goes beyond simple fascination.
