Fielding Bliss has never forgotten the summer of 1984: the
year a heat wave scorched Breathed, Ohio. The year he became
friends with the devil.
Sal seems to appear out of nowhere - a bruised and tattered
thirteen-year-old boy claiming to be the devil himself
answering an invitation. Fielding Bliss, the son of a local
prosecutor, brings him home where he's welcomed into the
Bliss family, assuming he's a runaway from a nearby farm town.
When word spreads that the devil has come to Breathed, not
everyone is happy to welcome this self-proclaimed fallen
angel. Murmurs follow him and tensions rise, along with the
temperature as an unbearable heat wave rolls into town right
along with him. As strange accidents start to occur, riled
by the feverish heat, some in the town start to believe that
Sal is exactly who he claims to be. While the Bliss family
wrestle with their own personal demons, a fanatic drives the
town to the brink of a catastrophe that will change this
sleepy Ohio backwater forever.
