When Porsche Winter sees a she-devil in downtown Toronto,
she knows this can only mean trouble. For this is not just
any she-devil, but Naamah, head she-devil and Lucifer's right
hand. With Lucifer turning his eye to the Earth, Porsche finds
allies in the most unlikely places, but can Naamah be trusted?
Defeating the minions of Hell isn't as easy as it used to
be. Stripped of her superior strength and healing ability
as well as the weapons in Heaven's arsenal, Porsche has only
one very human body with which to fight the forces of Hades.
And so it is down to one fallen angel, a small cherub and
a former stockbroker to try and save every soul on the planet...

plot - in fact it spoils an important twist regarding who
Porsche must join forces with - a fact not revealed until
almost half way into this adventure.
also had a problem with the idea that Satan was not totally
evil - and maybe even a little inept. Could someone (or thing)
really pull the wool over his eyes and be more evil than him?
No. He is the epitome of evil and therefore, surely, the lowest
of the low and no one should be able to beat him when it comes
to playing dirty tricks. And would he really ask for the help
of those in Heaven?
with the previous book, when the plot is stripped down to
its bare bones there is very little meat to it. But - and
this is something that Bedwell-Grime seems to be very good
at achieving - the fleshing out of the main narrative is very
I didn't enjoy this book quite as much as Guardian Angel,
I still found it a most enjoyable read - despite my earlier
nit-picking. If you enjoyed the previous book I recommend
that you add this latest volume to your collection too.
