The Devil is walking the Earth.
Cast out of Heaven, thrown down to rule in Hell, Lucifer Morningstar has resigned his post and abandoned his kingdom for the mortal city of Los Angeles. Emerging from the pages of writer Neil Gaiman’s award-winning series THE SANDMAN, the former Lord of Hell is now enjoying a quiet retirement as the proprietor of Lux, L.A.’s most élite piano bar.
But now an assignment from the Creator Himself is going to change all that.
If Lucifer agrees to do Heaven’s dirty work, he can name his own price – but both the task and the reward are more than they seem. Thrown into a position of great threat and ultimate opportunity, Lucifer knows that threading a path through this maze will require the harshest of sacrifices.
Fortunately for the Devil, it’s only a question of who is going to make them.

It takes some arrogance, worthy of the Prince of Lies himself, to claim, as this book does, that the book is based on characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth, and Mike Dringenberg. I would think that, at the very least, John Milton might have some prior claim on the creation of Lucifer, the fal...
