: SHAKE HANDS WITH THE DEVIL ' Masturbate. ' Melvin Pickle worked in a shoe store. The store was part of the mall that attached to the multiplex where he'd been caught shaking hands with the devil. I didn't have a lot of enthusiasm for this capture, since I had some sympathetic feelings for Pickle. If I had to work in a shoe store all day I might go the the multiplex to whack off once in a while too.' From 'Twelve Sharp: a Stephanie Plum Novel' by Janet Evanovich. St. Martin's Press, New York. June 2006. Page 12.

I'm sure I recall Norman Mailer using "shake hands with the devil" with that meaning many years back in an interview. He may have been quoting from one of his own books.
