* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Both main characters. Meg can be a spiteful little horror, but quickly cottons on when she has gone too far (such as when she tells Lowrie that "its a bit late for this life" and then immediately realises the full ramifications of what she has said) or when things are deadly serious (her reaction to Belch's pitbull savaging Lowrie, and her attempts to get Belch to stop the attack; an attempt which saves Lowrie and saves herself from hell.) Lowrie, for his part, is a grumpy old man, but is still sensitive enough to take Megs issues in life and her desire for retribution against her abusive stepfather seriously. Both characters, in this way, demonstrate hidden sensibilities even if they are outwardly not particularly nice.

* FreudianExcuse: Megs childhood, in her own words, was "no great shakes", and goes some way towards explaining her mean-streak, especially in comparison to the story's antagonists.

* NotUsingTheZWord: The Devil forbids the use of God's name in Hell, to the point that his servant starts saying "God help..." and quickly corrects himself because somehow, the Devil always knows when someone lets the G word slip out.

The novel begins with the protagonist, Meg Finn, dying horribly in a gas explosion after a break in goes wrong and the guy she's helping (sort of) accidentally blows them both up. However, because she tried to do good just before she died- saving the life of the old man Lowrie she was stealing from- she gets sent back to tip the scales, so to speak, one way or the other, to heaven or hell. To do this she has to help Lowrie complete the items on his "wish list": a list of things that he feels will correct the many mistakes he made in his life. In the meantime, both heaven and hell are out for her soul.
