“The Devil Walks in Mattingly” encourages the reader to identify with key characters disillusioned by the crippling impact of the darkness of regret, the insecurity of self-doubt, and the struggle to move forward after the death of Philip Mc Bride.

Author Billy Coffey left me with a lingering sense of reliving my own past shedding light on events, thought long forgotten, and their dramatic impact on my personal choices, core values, their limitations on my accomplishment and their inspiration leading to current successes, self-worth, and healthy relationships.

Coffey writes with a n intensity and conviction that reaches deep into the heart, producing self-revelation, higher aspirations, a stronger sense of commitment to purpose, and a better understanding of God’s grace,  forgiveness, and redemption.
