Description

"The immortal incarnations of Death and Time, who can't be defeated, competing in a game against each other is an intriguing idea pulled off with sharp-fanged flair."- The BookLife Prize

"...a confrontational psychiatrist infuses therapy with menace to the delight of thriller enthusiasts."- Kirkus Reviews
--
A controversial New York City psychiatrist, incapable of lying, tells his patients precisely what he thinks they need to hear: the truth, no matter the consequences. And in a fragile society where the smallest truth can crush the hardest heart, his patients both love and hate him for it.

Allister Boone is more than an ear and a shoulder with a sharp tongue and a penchant for self-suffering. He is a sociopath in a suit and a smile; he's addicted to this world but wants it to end, and since he is Death, his part in the apocalypse is always just a breath away.

While being Death has its advantages, being a jaded immortal wearing a human suit and with a severe case of OCD has many disadvantages. Especially when, in a moment of desperation, Allister agrees to play the game of all games with Time, also known as the insufferable Morty Finch:

"Let's see how many lives you can save while I work against you to end them."

Allister's biggest disadvantage, however, is his own deteriorating mental condition. With billions of souls trapped inside of him, he can only go for so long wearing the same body before they drive him mad and send him over a ledge of his own. Literally in a race against Time, Allister must not only save the lives of his patients-which is difficult to do when one has no empathy-but he must do the unthinkable to save himself and put balance back into the world.
