Jordan Fletcher is the quintessential American husbandat least on the outside. But inside, he has a gnawing emptiness, an emptiness unsated by financial success and sexual prowess. His marriage seems to be a farce and his teenaged children are in a world removed. The only person who seems to understand him is his secretary, and hes not convinced she really cares either. He is the perfect candidate for Christian conversion. This is the fear of Lord Beelzebubs invisible henchmen.

This story toggles the real world and the unseen, pitting forces of evil against the power of good as demons plot to deceive human vermin in classified correspondence. The reader is privy to demonic espionage in the form of letters between a senor demon and his subordinate, so has insight into battle strategy.

This fantasy has an uncanny ring of truth. Reality is, in fact, the unseen. Although this is not a romance, the novel delves into the heart, exploring the consequences of adultery and betrayal. (Jun., 281 pp., $14.99)
