"A story for the ages: A story born long before the time of man and captured by your writer, Christopher Leibig, who seems to be channeling his work from nether places, bringing you tales that promise to keep you up late turning pages!" —John Ellsworth, bestselling author of The Lawyer

Defense attorney Samson Young has an uncanny ability to get even the so-called worst clients off the hook, as he ably demonstrated in Almost Mortal. In Almost Damned, little does he know that his most challenging cases are all leading up to one monumental trial, in which he will lay before the Court the visceral complexities of good vs. evil.

As Sam navigates his cases in Bennett County, it becomes increasingly apparent that his clients – old and new - are surprisingly interconnected, especially when old clients rise from the dead. Literally. He and his office are besieged by death threats and mysterious invitations, each one a clue that compels him to dig deeper into his own past, including the supposed death of his mother and the religion he had long since left behind. With each new discovery, Sam leads himself and his team into a nether world, in an attempt to bring redemption to his toughest clients of all - the fallen angels who have been walking the earth for centuries, unable to find peace.

This is a sequel to Almost Mortal, but also works well as a standalone.

"From a capital case with an outrageous defense to what is undoubtedly the trial of the millennia, Almost Damned is full of characters who would have been just as recognizable in the 11th century as they are in the 21st" —Sean Jenan, author of Cipher
