The synopsis of the novel
The novel, published by Penguin Random House , features a man who works in hell… literally.
Peyote Trip has a good job in the chord department on the fifth floor of Hell. Sure, not even a pen works, the coffee machine has been broken for a century, and the only drink available is the Jägermeister, but Pey has a plan — and all she needs is a member of the Harrison family sell his soul.
When the Harrisons retreat to their lake house for the summer, with Ruth, a precocious friend of their daughter Mickey, in tow, the opportunity Pey has been waiting for a millennium may finally be at hand. And with the help of his charismatic colleague Calamity, he sets a plan in motion.
But things aren’t always as they seem, on Earth or in Hell. As old secrets and new dangers emerge beneath the Harrisons’ glittering surface, revealing the darkness that lies beyond, everyone must face the consequences of their choices.
In short, there is good material for a satirical comedy and fantasy. We will keep you posted.
