“We may delude ourselves, but that’s hardly the point. We must give voice to the irrational as an act of conscience. It’s the closest thing we have to prayer.” - from 'The Siren of Montmartre' by Leopold Nacht

The Loney - The Devil's Detective
Has anyone read both THE LONEY by Andrew Michael Hurley and THE DEVIL'S DETECTIVE by Simon Kurt Unsworth? These are completely different plots and styles, completely different books altogether. Yet, I am struck with the serendipitous resonance between each book concerning the nature of Hell, Heaven and Purgatory, and a 'conflict' between a Good and Bad Priest in one and a Good and Bad Angel in the other.
And the relativities of Good and Bad.
