Book Review: Sympathy for the Devil

Sympathy for the Devil, by Justin Gustainis

Senator Howard Stark has been possessed by a demon who wants to be the next President of the United States, and begins removing the competition by any means necessary. If he makes it to the White House, humanity will suffer by apocalyptic proportions. When supernatural investigator Quincey Morris and his partner Libby Chastain discover the conspiracy, the two will try to exorcise the demon and will have to side with a rivaling faction of demons to bring down the evil within Stark.

This is the third installment in the Morris and Chastain Investigation series. Though. more than half of the novel doesn’t actually revolve around Morris and Chastain. It centers on the Senator Stark conspiracy and the resulting fallout. The result is the feel of a political thriller meets urban fantasy in this latest release. Dark, suspenseful, with plenty of surprising twists, the story was completely engaging and hard to put down. And the characters are complex and gritty. Gustainis never fails to entertain.
