Brought up by a strict Calvinist pastor, Robert Wringham believes he is one of the elect, predestined for salvation while all others - including his real father and brother - are cursed.

Convinced he is indestructible and above the law, Robert commits terrible crimes under the influence of Gil-Martin - his physical double - who claims they are acting in God's name to purify the world.

But does this mysterious tempter actually exist? Could he be an agent of the devil? Subversive and unsettling, "The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner" (1824) is a compelling psychological depiction of religious bigotry and the seductive effects of power on a tormented soul.
