Thanks to the help of Misto the ghost cat, Lee Fontana has beaten the Devil, who tormented his family for generations--or, so he thinks. But fairness means nothing to Satan.
When Lee is released from a Washington State prison, Misto watches for the return of Lee's dark adversary; but the tomcat is also close to nine-year-old Sammie Blake, three thousand miles away. And Sammie is of interest to Satan, too: a child blessed with a gift the Devil covets.
Yet Misto senses a connection between Sammie and Lee that is deeper than just the Devil's attention. And soon Sammie, too, suffers from Satan's attacks when one of the Devil's longtime puppets, ex-con Brad Falon, sets up a deadly robbery and frames her daddy, Morgan Blake, to take the fall.
Morgan is convicted and behind bars when he meets a new friend, Lee Fontana. Together, they plan a reckless escape to bring the real killer to justice and to clear Morgan's name. All they need do is outsmart the Devil, one last time.
