Michael is left with no clue where Dez has gone. She just split. No words of explanation. No consolatory goodbyes. She just vanished into a puff of smoke.
A few months have passed, and Michael can feel the weight of loneliness crushing him. Learning to embrace his exhaustion, he decides to spend New Year's Eve curled up in the comfort of his bed.
He expected to find the sweet relief of slumber.
Instead, he found only more suffering.
SUFFERING, a bonus Hellfire short which takes place between the events of The Devil You Know (book one) and Speak of the Devil (book two). This short was previously released as part of the bestselling urban fantasy New Years Eve anthology The Stroke of Midnight.
