(From the publisher):
At a cocktail party to launch his latest creations, Adam and Eve, God is challenged to a bet by the Devil (who has crashed the event). Unimpressed by the Boss's new toys, the fallen angel wagers that, far from being the custodians of Earth that God has created them to be, humans will inevitably destroy themselves. God, possessed of a fragile ego, can't refuse this wager in front of all his guests and so accepts. If Satan wins, he gets his place back in Heaven and control of what's left of Earth. If he loses. he will retire into outer darkness and never bother God more.
Coming down to Earth, we meet Martin Grey, a simple dentist at the end of his tether, who finds himself assisting the Angel Gabriel in a desperate attempt to stop the Devil laying waste to the Earth by means of a fiendishly cunning computer game. But when Martin's wife is kidnapped and dragged down to Hell, it is clear that his problems are just beginning...
