Overview

OVERVIEW:

Mattie Moskowicz is a thirty-year-old, San Francisco, socialite dropout, who moved to a small Iowa town to start a new life that has been steadily going downhill. In hopes of getting out of her doldrums, Mattie purchases a book on witchcraft and sells her soul to a delightful devil, named Devlin S. O'Shawnesey, in trade for fifty-eight percent ownership of the Chicago Tornadoes professional baseball club. Her knowledge of sports could easily be scribbled onto the head of a pin. Mattie has second thoughts about her contract with Devlin and hires the witch who wrote the book to move to Chicago and help break the contract.

The four minority Tornadoes’ stockholders are furious because the previous majority owner, a deceased client of Devlin’s, did not give them the option to buy out his shares, as was originally agreed. Mattie’s estate attorney, Mark, who is also the Tornadoes’ primary attorney, is ordered by the stockholders to draw up a will for Mattie with the buyout clause included. She unknowingly signs the will along with several other legal contracts to take over all assets of the previous owner.

Mattie renegotiates her con-tract with Devlin that will forgive her obligations to him if she takes the last place Tornadoes to a pennant this year, something they haven’t done for over one hundred years. If the team fails he will take ten years off her contract. To complicate matters, Mattie’s life turns into a death race with a minority stockholder’s hit man. She may end up in Hell sooner than she expected unless she can find a permanent way out of Devlin’s contract and her race with death.
