‘The Goddess Fortune is the Devil’s servant ready to Kiss any ones Arse’:
quote by William Blake.
With the Covid-19 lockdown, together with the closure of my local tennis club, I was expecting to fly along with my writing of The Devil’s Servant. I had just finished Part 1, so starting on Part 2 was going to be easy.

But, as I am nearing a successful conclusion, can this be said of my much-loved antihero, Darren? (Yes, I really do love him.) As minor characters from his past start to re-emerge to both embarrass and threaten him, who, if any of them, will prove to be his Nemesis?
