The Devil Gets His Due
~ Linda B.
the closing moments of The Libertine, John Wilmot,
of Rochester, succumbs to syphilis. But death, however torturous
and premature, proves far less harrowing for my lord Rochester than
the afterlife. Linda B.’s The Devil Gets His Due shows
celebrated libertine stranded in hell and—to his
boring. Imagine Rochester, he of the quick wit and
mind, trapped for three hundred years in a bland room that never
changes, where he lacks all diversion and his only companion is a
devil bent on frustrating his every impulse. Rochester would do
anything to escape this hell . . . but when the devil offers him a
way out, is it just another way to break his heart?
About the Author
The Devil Gets His Due was the first work of fan fiction Linda B. published on the Johnny Depp Zone; it appeared in the winter of 2006. She has since shared a couple of delightful tales that fill in Captain Jack Sparrow’s backstory, Fate Intervenes and The Sparrow’s Nest. Her inspiration for The Devil Gets His Due came from, she says, “an intense desire to give Rochester a second chance.”
