From the cover: “Diego de Arredondo Dodd was a very ordinary person except in his parentage. He was brought up in the Bide-A-White Tourist Home, lived through a run-of-the-mill boyhood, found himself a girl, left her to sow his wild oats and returned to settle down to a staid and dull life. But by a curious chance, he discovers that his true father was Red Samaël, the Seducer, youngest and most virile of the seventy-two princes of Hell, a red-headed rogue who had made his reputation some centuries ago — and had not allowed it to become tarnished in the intervening years.”
