Summary
Ten Grand charts former mob enforcer Joe Fitzgerald's journey into the world of demonology and ancient powers that threaten to tear down the pillars of Heaven itself in a new war between the forces of light and dark. Joe promised the love of his life that he'd quit after one last job. He never imagined that his target might have demonic connections who killed not only Joe but his wife Laura as well. As he lay dying, an angelic force offered him a deal: in exchange for his services he will be able to see Laura for five minutes every time he dies in a righteous cause...and then resurrect to continue the fight. When not on heavenly assignments, Joe takes on jobs on behalf of the lost and hopeless. He charges ten grand for his services, enough to ward off the losers and the users, but not enough to scare off anybody who truly needs his help. The more desperate the cause, the more just the job, the better his odds of having a righteous death...and that one moment with Laura. Can the man willing to die a thousand deaths so he can be with his love for just a few minutes save the lives of an entire world? Or will this be the end of...well, everything?
