One moment Mark Twain is dead in his grave, the next he's resurrected in a fresh white suit, chilling in a mountain lodge in a small town he doesn't recognize, surrounded by eleven other geniuses he never liked.
Oh, and Satan just walked in the door.
He says the group has been tasked with figuring out the secret purpose of life. If they don't find the correct answer in the next three days, Satan's wife (God) shall annihilate the entire human race. The author refuses to play along. Instead, he discovers true love for the first time with a pretty young barista across the street. Satan launches an escalating series of catastrophes upon the town, yet Twain remains unmoved by humanity's plight - until his beloved is captured by a town mob eager for a witch-burning. As time ticks down to the final hour, Twain must choose to humor a God he never believed in, or to trust in the Devil's trickery

Michael's capture, however, presents her with an unthinkable dilemma: will she have to return the cursed crown to the evil ones so that her beloved protector's life can be spared?
