School shootings, terrorist attacks, mothers who murder their children … this is the Devil’s work. But the Devil has some help on Earth from his selective, yet ever-increasing group of “Dead Souls” — people who have sold their souls and now owe a favor to the lord of the underworld in exchange for having their greatest wish granted.
In J. Lincoln Fenn‘s Dead Souls, Fiona Dunn is one of those Dead Souls.
Before signing away her soul, the young woman had been a successful marketing manager at a high-end backpack company. She had joked that the third level of Hell was reserved for marketers, never suspecting that she’d soon put herself in a position to eventually find out if that’s true.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: a baby is the sole survivor of a horrific family massacre. The infant is adopted by a crazy person who keeps the child’s history a deep, dark secret. On his 18th birthday, the kid gets a phone call out of nowhere letting him know that he’s inherited a large estate aka a ramshackle farmhouse and barn in the woods.
He ventures to Maine where he meets an attorney anxious to get the estate dealt with as soon as possible. The kid, against the advice of some off-kilter locals who tell him to turn back and go back where he came from, decides to stay at what is revealed to be site of said horrific family massacre.
