A darkly humorous, surprising and poignant novel about a guy who works in Hell who must collect one more soul to earn his freedom. Peyote Trip has a pretty good gig in the deals department on the fifth floor of Hell. Sure, none of the pens work and the coffee machine has been out of order for a century, but Pey has a plan-and all he needs is one last member of the Harrison family to sell their soul.
When the Harrisons retreat to the family lake house for the summer, with their daughter Mickey's precocious new friend in tow, the opportunity Pey has waited a millennium for might finally be in his grasp. And with the help of his charismatic coworker Calamity, he sets a plan in motion. But things aren't always as they seem, on Earth or in Hell.
And as old secrets and new dangers scrape away at the Harrisons' shiny surface, revealing the darkness beneath, everyone must face the consequences of their choices.
