Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and woke up the next morning with a raging headache and a pair of horns growing from his temples.
At first Ig thought the horns were a hallucination, the product of a mind damaged by rage and grief. He had spent the last year lonely, following the death of his beloved Merrin Williams, who was raped and murdered under inexplicable circumstances. A mental breakdown would have been the most natural thing in the world but there was nothing natural about the horns, which were all too real. Ig had enjoyed the life of the blessed, being the second son of a renowned musician and younger brother of a rising late-night TV star, and more he had Merrin. But Merrin’s death damned all that. The only suspect in the crime, Ig was never charged or tried. And he was never cleared. In the court of public opinion in Gideon, New Hampshire, Ig is and always will be guilty because his rich and connected parents pulled strings to make the investigation go away. It seems everyone, including God, has abandoned him except the devil inside.
Now Ig is possessed of a terrible new power, a macabre talent he intends to use to find the monster who killed Merrin and destroyed his life. Being good and praying for the best got him nowhere. It’s time for a little revenge. It’s time the devil had his due.
