Hell has changed. No longer punished by fire and torture, humans are assigned miserable, thankless jobs overseen by a demon bureaucracy. Thomas Fool is Hell’s detective, tasked with solving crimes curious even by Hell’s standards. Navigating a dystopia echoing Orwell’s 1984, Thomas delves deep into the machinations of a world he will never understand, confronting ancient, powerful demons. His quest for the truth imbues him with something forbidden in Hell: hope.
