    " Beautiful piece of prose that had me really examining some my unargued ideas about Heaven and Hell. the main characters Tempest and Mr. Angel are an awesome team whose dialect and banter kept me intrigued til the last page....definitely hoping to here from them again. All in all, an great read twice over!! "

    " The Tempest Tales by Walter Mosley was a fast read that leaves you with much to think on. There are strong themes of religion and questioning of it in this book. Tempest Landry is walking home one night when police mistake him for a thief and shoot him. When he dies and stands before St. Peter and hears the list of sins and the pronouncement that he's being sent to hel, however, he denies his sin and that he should go to hell. This actually puts heaven in a predicament because apparently Tempest has the power to destroy heaven with a word. So, they send him back to earth with Joshua Angel, an accounting angel, to try and convince Tempest to accept his sin and be sent to hell. It's not an easy job. This is a fun read with lots of interesting moral quandries to ponder. "
