Karla Sorensen used to be big in horror films. In the 60s and 70s no self-respecting low-budget bloody schlocker shocker was complete without the Queen of Vampires presiding over it. She was well-qualified for it, after all... at the age of ten, she sold her soul to the devil. Now, although spookily ageless, Karla is knocking on in years. Her residuals are drying up and she needs some cash, so she decides to return to the north of England, to Manchester, to appear in 'Menswear', Britain's most risque TV soap opera. But not everyone's happy about her return to the fame game. 'Menswear's current star is Lance Randall, the famously sexually-confused heart-throb, and he's furious to hear that Karla is about to become his co-star. He hates her, he fears her, and he's convinced that she's come to steal his very soul. Darl clouds are massing around Manchester - and deep, dark, devilish secrets are about to be unleashed... Raucous, fabulously witty and unputdownable, 'To the Devil - A Diva!' sis Paul Magrs at his inimitable best.
