The story starts of by Ig waking up with devil horns. He has no idea how he got them.
Ig's life is not very great. Everyone in town thinks that Ig murdered Merrin even though he is completely innocent. Even his own parents believe he did it. Ig is the prime suspect of the murder because of how close he was with Merrin and because the night before her murder he got into a big public argument with her in a restaurant. After the argument Ig gets very upset and storms off by himself leaving Merrin alone in the restaurant. But, even though everyone thinks Ig did it, the police have no evidence to prove him guilty. All the evidence was lost in a fire.
Ig has a few powers his horns have granted him. One of them being that people will just tell him their deepest darkest thoughts. He can also persuade people to make bad decisions. For example when Ig goes to the church as a last attempt for help a nun confesses that she wanted to steal all the money from the church and run away even though he didn't even ask her.
I want to steal all the money from the church and run away! Ig should I?
When Ig figures out what his horns can make people do, he goes on a mission to find out who really murdered Merrin. During his mission he discovers many things he didn't want to know. For example his parents confess that they secretly hate him and that they never want to see him again. He also discovers that his brother Terry had actually been with Merrin the night of her Murder and he didn't tell anyone about it.
