      A humorous fantasy novel with elements of the detective genre, Fisher of Devils accepts common Christian beliefs and then does unspeakable things with them! Opening in Eden with God demonstrating the use of Adam's unwelcome "quaint appendage", and ending in Heaven with the weirdest party of all time, in between it takes us on a riotous tour of the Afterworld. The rascally St Peter and his psychotic bodyguard St George take on Satan and a bunch of seriously pissed-off Fallen Angels. Devil and Saint have their hidden agendas, but are gradually forced into a dubious partnership. When not trying to destroy or save each other, they have to confront, inter alia: the impeccably mannered Beast of the Apocalypse; bones with a grudge; treachery by Satan's own ministers; rebellion by the original cannibalistic inhabitants of Hell; lovelorn souls in vats in Limbo; a rigged Second Judgement; conscience-stricken serpents; the gurgling (and deadly) Immaculate Infant; the Virgin Mary with her hideous secret. And at the back of both their minds is the memory of a certain woman . . .
