"About the Book Millionaire media mogul Raymond Neenan is flying in a plane next to the Archangel Michael. When turbulence sends the plane hurtling earthward, Neenan considers Michael's offer to save his immortal soul. But making amends will be easy task, since Neenan has destroyed his relationship with his parents, ex-wife, his children and practically everyone he's ever met. Book Synopsis Millionaire media mogul Raymond Neenan can't believe his ears--or his eyes. the seat next to him, empty for the whole flight, now barely contains a huge man who looks a lot like Chicago Bulls superstar Michael Jordan. In fact, the man is the Archangel Michael (Not Mike, not Mikey, but Michael. you got a problem with that?), and he's looking to make a deal for Neenan's immortal soul. Neenan isn't interested in his soul or anyone else's unless there is money in it, but a little well-timed turbulence that sends the plane hurtling earthward caused him to reconsider. If he doesn't believe in it, what could it hurt to sign? But for a man like Neenan, making amends is no easy task. Though he never knew it, he's damaged a lot of lives, including his own. He's hated or feared by his parents, his ex-wife, his children, and practically everyone he's ever met.
