Reviews

On a flight into Chicago, millionaire media mogul Raymond Neenan is visited by his guardian angel. Michael informs Neenan that his life is almost over and that he needs to make amends for mistreating people in his profit-centered existence, among them his wife; his estranged offspring, who hate him; and numerous business associates. With Michael's careful orchestration, Neenan is able to resolve issues with this diverse group and even seems to enjoy his newfound attitude. While not great literature, Contract will keep demand high from fans of Father Greeley (An Occasion of Sin). Very capably read by Dick Hill, this is recommended for most public libraries.ÄDavid Scott, Southwestern Oklahoma State Univ., Weatherford Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

"A witty and delightful inside-out Faust with angelic choirs, a variety of loving, and an ending with a special twist. Greely has fashioned a novel about learning to love and doing it well."--"San Antonio Express-News" on "Contract with an Agel"

"Sit back and enjoy novel-writing Catholic priest Andrew M. Greely's little fantasy about a wealthy and powerful businessman who turns his life around--none too soon--after a visit from a Seraph."--"Dallas Morning News" on "Contract with an Agel"
