At 30, Billy Ridgeway still hasn't gotten around to becoming a writer; he thinks too much to get anything done, really, except making sandwiches at a Greek deli with his buddy Anil. But the Devil shows up with fancy coffee one morning, promising to make Billy's dream of being published come true: as long as Billy steals The Neko of Infinite Equilibrium, a cat-shaped statue with magical powers, from the most powerful warlock in the Eastern United States. The Devil's bidding sends Billy on a wild chase through New York City, through which Billy discovers his own strength.

If the devil approaches you with an offer - in a PowerPoint presentation no less - would you run or make a deal? Failing writer and only slightly more successful sandwich shop employee Billy Ridgeway finds himself in exactly that situation in this funny and imaginative novel.

If you make a deal with the devil does he get to keep your soul? Enjoyable story and weird one for sure! Shouldn't be a surprise based on the title!

This is one of the funniest books I have read in a while. Reminiscent of the Terry Fallis novels (Best Laid Plans....) but a little cruder.
