FOLLOWING ON FROM THE BESTSELLING PHENOMENON THE LEFT HAND OF GOD 'You're the right colour for the Angel of Death, Mister Cale. But a little short.' 'I could cut your head off and stand on it. Then I'd be taller.' Returning to the Sanctuary of the Redeemers, Thomas Cale is told by the Lord Militant that the destruction of mankind is necessary - it is the only way to undo God's greatest mistake. Cale seemingly accepts his role in the ending of the world - fate has painted him as the Left Hand of God, the Angel of Death. Absolute power is within his grasp - the terrifying zeal and military might of the Redeemers a weapon for him to handle as simply as he once used a knife. But perhaps not even the grim power that the Redeemers hold over Cale is enough - the boy who turns from love to poisonous hatred in a heartbeat; the boy who switches between kindness and sheer violence in the blink of an eye. The annihilation that the Redeemers seek may well be in Cale's hands - but his soul is far stranger than they could ever know.
