Going to Hell has a way of shifting your perspective, at least where he's concerned. Jackson, a former demon hunter gone rogue, contacts an old friend to act as his confessor as part of his twelve-step program. Seeking absolution for his many transgressions, Jackson begins his twisted tale with his own death and subsequent funeral, after which he learns the truth of the plot against him, perpetrated by his former friends and mentors. In retaliation Jackson slays the council of elders, leaving only one man alive and switches sides, opting to work for the beings he'd been paid to hunt. Systematically, Jackson smashes his way through the clues, unlocking the web of deceit and betrayal that seems to have begun back in his childhood, shaping him into the monster he has become. In the process, he manages to put himself back on the radar after living like a ghost for several years, drawing the attention of the Russian mafia in the process. After a series of poor choices and botched revenge scenarios, Jackson is forced to play the reluctant hero, ending up with more innocent blood on his hands than he bargained for before finally discovering the identity of the last name on his hit list.
