Accordingly to Wikipedia the idiom, “The devil is in the detail” refers to a catch or mysterious element hidden in the details, meaning that something might seem simple at a first look but will take more time and effort to complete than expected and derives from the earlier phrase, “God is in the detail” expressing the idea that whatever one does should be done thoroughly; i.e. details are important.
Truer words are rarely spoken about trust deeds.
