A madcap adventure brimming with the ethical quandaries and sardonic wit of The Good Place delivered by World Fantasy Award-winning author K. J. Parker. Long ago, a wealthy man stole an angel and hid her in a chapel, where she remains imprisoned to this day. That’s the legend, anyway. A clerical student who’s racked up gambling debts to a local gangster is given an ultimatum ― deliver the angel his grandfather kidnapped, or forfeit various body parts in payment. And so begins a whirlwind theological paradox ― with the student at its center ― in which the stakes are the necessity of God, the existence of destiny ― and the nature of angels.
