In a Prohibition-era world where demonic princes pull the strings that make crime families dance, Eddie is a mortal with two things working for him.

First of all, he can’t die. Well, he can and does, quite often, but he doesn’t stay down for long. Second, Eddie runs the Gehenna Room, a nightclub with a strict “no demons allowed” policy. but blessings and curses don’t look all that different these days, and failing to tell the two apart can get a person killed–over and over again in Eddie’s case.

So when one of Eddie’s old friends shows up seeking sanctuary, Eddie knows he’s in for a double-cross, and that indicates walking the line between salvation and damnation once more.
