Interesting piece. Kind of reminded me of Stephen King but I'm not sure why. The narator has this skiill of inflicting this weird state of claustrophobia to the reader while describing the main character's emotional purgatory, so major props for that.
You also do a really good job at creating a pretty complex character within the span of 20+ pages.
The concept wasn't very original and the dialogue seemed a bit dry- altough I did love that line ďItís not our fault! It canít be our fault!Ē. It's so simple. It came out of nowhere and it gave a whole new dimension to the "angry mob", indicating more than just anger and outrage aimed at the main character.

Death's voice screeching "There will be no negotiations" in a latina accent is still ringing in my head. The plot was interesting. There were some points that I feel you should try to work on like the fight between Death and the Devil... read

    Finished reading it. Woah, talk about a grim story. It also had quite a few surprises that I liked although the last one with Kevin being Halleluiah's murderer seemed bit stretched out, also I find it a bit unlikely that the police would leave his glasses behind at the murder scene. The conversations he had with his targets were a bit over the top. Not really expecting "quip"... read
