The greatest philosopher of all time is offering to sell his soul to the Devil. All he wants is twenty more years to complete his life’s work. After that, he really doesn’t care. But the assistant demon assigned to the case has his suspicions, because the philosopher is Saloninus–the greatest philosopher, yes, but also the greatest liar, trickster and cheat the world has yet known; the sort of man even the Father of Lies can’t trust. He’s almost certainly up to something; but what?

Not a Bad Story

Not a bad story, but I do have one major issue. I don't know if it is an audio presentation issue or the way it is written, and since I do not have the actual book/epub in front of me, I have to guess. As this is told in the first person, my issue is the switching back and forth between the two characters without notification. I was always eventually able to pick up on it after a while from context, but it was annoying after a while. I don't know if the book has some sort of divider or is perhaps labeled as chapters or something. Otherwise, a pretty good story.
