Sometimes even the Devil deserves a break!

Life is hard for The Devil and he desperately wants to take a holiday. Growing weary from playing the cosmic bad guy, he resolves to set up a company that will do his job for him so the sins of the world will tick over while he takes a vacation. God tells him he can have his vacation just as soon as he solves an ancient crime.

But nothing is ever easy and before long he is up to his pitchfork in solving murders, desperate to crack the case so he can finally take the holiday he so badly needs…

This is a perfectly-pitched darkly comic crime novel that is ideal for fans of Christopher Fowler and Ben Aaranovitch.

HELLCORP was to me an hilarious read from Johnathan Whitelaw. The Devil is in desperate need of a much needed holiday so he decides to make Hell an legitimate business setting up it’s headquarters in the Scottish capital Edinburgh, in order to take a break

This doesn’t go down too well Him upstairs so He sets the Devil a little task – if he finds out who murdered someone then he can get a holiday.

Sounds easy enough for The Devil right? I mean he knows all the evil about anyone, but finding out the killer in a human body is a whole other kettle of fish!

He meets a Dr called Jill Gideon and he embarks on a fast paced journey with her that sees The Devil have a whole new appreciation for humans. Jill doesn’t believe he is The Devil at first but she begins to discover an renewed faith by the end of the story.

For all it is about God the Devil and everything in between this is most definitely not a religious book, and I think that is why I loved it. It appealed to my sense of humour, and have me a humorous approach to heaven and hell.

So does The Devil get a holiday? Well maybe but not for long … He is The Devil after all, and you know what they say – no rest for the wicked!
