When all hope is lost, shall hope be found in hopelessness; when all that was known is forgotten, shall be revealed that which was never known. When the word of God falls on deaf ears... then... shall The Devil rise to speak! Adam William Jones - a billionaire playboy, a thief, an oil smuggler, a murderer, a lost romantic and a scorned lover, looks back at his life and his quest, as he stands at the dawn of the meaningless truth, in empty anticipation of the fulfilment of his life's purpose - his revenge! Howard Patrick Thompson - an exemplary FBI agent - loses his mind after the rape and murder of his wife, and wanders through life, lost to himself, in quest of a man he hopes doesn't exist...in the quest to lose his soul. Daniel Zachariah, in life, was one of the wealthiest men on the eastern shore. In death, they say ... he is the Devil! Will Adam find in his heart to forgive, or metamorphose into the enemy he set out to destroy? Will Howard find the purpose to his existence, or lose himself to the quest? Is Daniel really dead? Could what they say be true... Does The Devil really walk among us?
