Amazon: Angel on My Back | B & N: Angel on My Back

When Jake Hannity loses his wife to leukemia he realizes he’s not as tough as he thought. Now it’s too late to apologize for treating her badly and to tell her she’s the only woman he could ever love. He feels guilty and no longer cares about life. Even when he wins the lottery he can’t bear the shame and loneliness so he turns to the whisky bottle. He thinks he’s lost forever.

However, the Commander of the Universe believes Jake is worth saving. He sends Angel Gabriel to find Jake Hannity and set him straight. Gabriel protests because he feels Hannity is a no good scoundrel, and not worth the effort. However, the Commander insists the angel take the challenge.

Hannity agrees to do a ‘few errands’ only to get the Gabriel off his back. Jake feels no emotion, but wants to be left alone to drown his sorrows. Gabriel is unrelenting and Jake reluctantly follows through.

The question is, will Gabriel help Jake become the town hero, or will Jake fall flat on his face because of his attitude?
