Silas has worked for Death in Nevada for 150 years. He gets Christmas and Christmas Eve off. Only this year, his substitute finds him in a Las Vegas casino. His substitute, who is little more than a boy, a boy whose task terrifies him. If the boy finishes the task, he’ll have a permanent job. If he doesn’t, a dozen kids will live in agony. […]
He calls himself Ben…sometimes. Mostly he avoids thinking of his name so other people won’t remember him.
He kills people for a living, but he has standards. He uses astrology to help him follow the right path.
But when someone targets him, Ben realizes his methods might just get the astrologers who have been helping him killed.
