Johannes Cabal, a brilliant but reclusive scientist, has never pretended to be a hero. There is after all little heroic about robbing graves, being chased by torch-bearing mobs and selling your soul to the devil. All routine inconveniences, however, when your business is raising the dead.
But now Cabal wants his soul back and he descends to Hell to retrieve it. Satan, incredibly bored and hungry for a challenge, proposed a little wager: Johannes has one year to persuade one hundred people to sign over their souls or he will lose his own forever.
With little time to lose, Cabal raises a crew from the dead and enlists his vampire brother to help out. One the road, Cabal wields weird science and black magic with the moral conscience of anthrax, but are his tricks good enough to beat the Devil at his own game?
