Review: Damned Busters: Hell to Pay, Book 1
Damned Busters: Hell to Pay, Book 1 by Matthew Hughes
A thoroughly enjoyable story, that centers on a highly functional autistic actuary who accidentally summons a demon but refuses to sell his soul to Satan, which has a series of repercussions, including Hell going on strike. The book is delivered with elegant wit, punctuated by humorous passages, and is flat out funny.
The incredibly well developed cast of characters keeps you eager to turn the page. This ensemble includes a demon sidekick who sounds like a 1920’s mobster, a rich bitch, sniveling middle management, Satan, and even a televangelist.
Don’t read too much into the religious component, it’s fun regardless of your perspective. You can read the first 10,000 words here, and I encourage you to do so. You’ll be hooked, and the paperback is only $8, the Kindle? $4. I’m eagerly awaiting the sequel scheduled for later this year.
