Senator Howard Stark wants to be President of the United States. So does the demon inside him. With the competing candidates dropping out due to scandal, blackmail, and ‘accidental’ death, Stark looks like a good bet to go all the way to the White House. And if he gets there, Hell on Earth will follow.

Occult investigator Quincey Morris and white witch Libby Chastain are determined to stop this evil conspiracy. But between them and Stark stand the dedicated agents of the US Secret Service – as well as the very forces of Hell itself. Quincey and Libby will risk everything to exorcise the demon possessing Stark. If they fail, ‘Hail to the Chief’ will become a funeral march – for all of us.

The next presidential election is getting near. and handsome, charismatic Senator Howard Stark wants to become president. There's only one problem: He's possessed by Sargatanas, a powerful demon who wants to unleash all evil on earth. To make things worse, Stark's assistant happens to be a malevolent, highly-intelligent practitioner of the black arts, and she'll stop at nothing to get what she wants. One by one, the other candidates begin to die, some of illness, others due to mysterious accidents. Enter the good guys: occult investigator Quincey Morris and his partner, white witch Libby Chastain. Together, they risk their lives while trying to find a way to exorcise the senator, which isn't easy. After all, how do you get passed the US Secret Service and the forces of hell itself? Sympathy for the Devil is pure entertainment. I've read all of the books in this series and I have to say I've always thoroughly enjoyed them. Just like in the earlier installments, the story, told from multiple points of view, opens with a reader-grabbing scene and continues its quick, suspenseful pace until the end. Gustainis makes the stakes high and the characters sympathetic, making you care for their predicament. He's great at making you hate the villain. The secondary characters are interesting, too-even some of the bad ones are likable. Lots of action and dialogue propel the plot; Gustainis doesn't spend much time on description. If you're a fan of urban fantasy and supernatural, political thrillers, you'll relish this one. Also, the book stands alone perfectly, so don't worry if you haven't read the earlier novels. I certainly look forward to reading what Quincey and Libby are up to next.
