Justeen Case was unlucky-and not just because of her unusual name. She was a victim of young love, and like most romantic tales, it ended in tragedy. Justeen was distraught when her boyfriend had been violently murdered, so in a moment of sheer hysteria, she made a deal with the devil . . .
Until now, Justeen Case had lived a protected life. She had good grades, a family who loved her, and a boyfriend of whom she adored more than life itself. She prayed for God to send her love back to her, but when he didn't answer her call-someone else did . . . Satan.
Desperate to save her love, she made a deal. She'd live her life with him, but when her time was up, Justeen would serve the devil for one hundred good deeds. It sounded like a fair trade. She got what she wanted. She'd be able to see her dearly beloved again, and hold him in her arms until the day she died.
The devil, however, was a twisted man. He knew that her golden string would be plucked, pulled, and that her numbers were fading - fast. And not even twenty four hours after her boyfriend was resurrected, she died. Now she must keep her end of the bargain.
