I loved this book; part gangster story, part fantasy, part morality play, no one character completely virtuous, few completely bad. Schickler does a superb job of showing what makes people who they are and what makes them tick. Grace, the heroine, is trying for God but has a well developed libido and taste for revenge. Henry Dante is a former enforcer for a mobster, Honey Pobrinkis, who would make a marvelous role for a truly great character actor like Tom Wilkinson. The book is a wild ride and packs more into ist relatively short length than some can in double this. HIGHLY recommended.
