Entertaining story, superb narrator. Vivid, nuanced conceptual exploration of what Hell could be, and perhaps is?

If you could sum up The Devil's Detective in three words, what would they be?
My best friend called me and suggested this book to me - "it's dark and deep," she said, "you'll love it." And that it is. It's poetic and riveting. I could not stop reading this book. I actually bought it in person. Definitely not a book to recommend to say -- er--- your mother-in-law. But a book that makes you question what hell and heaven really is... one of the most striking comments in the book was (and I'm paraphrasing) -- that in hell, you live in a world of constant torture, rape, murder, and destruction but the worst part of it isn't all that, the worst part of hell is not knowing why you're there. You know you deserve this - but what did you do that made this so? (The characters in hell have no memories of their lives in Earth and that's what makes hell truly hell).
The character development and the ending are absolutely phenomenal. If you're into dark fiction, please give this a read. You will not regret it.
