Greeley is charming a whole new generation of readers as well as delighting his legion of loyal fans. Only a novelist with his unique vision and talent could believably blend Irish-American heritage, angels, capitalism, and romance into a refreshing and modern twist on the ancient legend of Faust.Since when did archangels start appearing in public, offering people deals for their immortal souls? That seems to be more like a job for a minion from down below. But thats just what happens to millionaire media mogul Raymond Neenan. On a flight into Chicagos OHare airport, an ordinary-looking businessman appears in the seat beside him with these words of admonishment: The scenario says you dont have much longer to live. Youd better straighten out the mess youve made of your life.A cynic whos used to playing hardball in the business world, Neenan isnt too interested in his soul or anyone elses -- unless there is money in it -- and hes not buying this angel bit. A little well-timed turbulence that sends the plane hurtling earthward causes him to reconsider. If he doesnt believe in it, what could it hurt to sign?Making amends in his personal and business life, both past and present -- proves to be no easy task. Though Neenan never knew it, hes damaged a lot of lives, including his own. Hes hated or feared by his parents, his ex-wife, his children, and practically everyone hes ever met. But with Michael as his mentor, he just might be able to help some of the people hes ruined and discover that he actually enjoys it -- and that maybe theres hope forthat soul of his, after all.A tale of young love and faith as modern as U2, with a cast of characters, that very well may open Greeleys work to a generation of new readers. Yet those who have followed his works in the past will find the same storytelling mastery and the same understanding of the heart. -- Chicago Tribune on Irish God
