The 99¢ Kindle novel manipulates religious mythology to highlight humanity's penchant for both committing evil as well as defeating it. The protagonist of the story is Stewart Willoughby, an ex-CIA agent who devotes his afterlife to killing the devil. To accomplish this task, Stewart and his girlfriend Layla take a whirlwind ride through a bizarre dystopian afterlife.
Breaking the Devil's Heart creates an afterlife never before seen in a novel. God is nowhere to be found, hell is an office, Satan is a female CEO, demons in suits peddle evil to fulfill sales quotas, and heaven is taken over by fundamentalists. Throughout the story, Stewart and Layla recruit demons as spies, torture demons for information, infiltrate the hellish Company and its Stock Exchange, and eventually find out that Satan, evil, and human fallibility share an eerily common connection.
H. A. Goodman's 99¢ Kindle novel Breaking the Devil's Heart is a testament to his research on how evil is often times legitimized and justified by human beings. The story highlights how the confluence of tribalism, narcissism, and primal emotions allow even the most ordinary of individuals to engage in the most heinous atrocities.
The afterlife dystopia in the story utilizes a great deal of historical fiction, sociology, psychology, international relations and contemporary events to explain the evolution of conflict in the world.
As a former financial advisor and LAUSD history teacher, H. A. Goodman built a world that has resonated with a wide demographic of readers, both in the U.S. and throughout the globe.
