Author: Dr. Charles A. Reap, Jr.
Devil's Game concerns an ordinary citizen that becomes bewitched by the devil. Tragic, horrible, and bloody incidents occur all around the protagonist, George Sheldon.
The main problem is that only George can see the devil, who drives a light blue extra-large sport utility vehicle. When law enforcement officials learn that George is always around when these disasters occur, they suspect terrorist plots. He is arrested time and time again. No one, not even his wife, believes his story since they can not view the SUV or its driver.
Devastated by all the tragedies and arrests, he tries in vain to confront the SUV driver, the devil. George cannot gain understanding, "Why me?" He turns to alcohol to try to subdue his stress of viewing the blood and flames, and loses his wife, home and job. He is eventually confined to a mental institution.
Upon his release, however, he degrades into a drunken, nearly penniless bum, living on the filthy streets. What will become of him? Can he regain his sanity and once again lead a normal life? Can he defeat the devil's diabolic toying with him?
Although this is Dr. Reap's, first venture into fiction, he has previously published two dental textbooks and numerous journal articles. He began his literary avocation by working at his father's weekly newspaper, The Albemarle (N.C.) Enterprise.
