A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time grim reaper.
Private investigator Charlotte Davidson was born with three things: looks; a healthy respect for the male anatomy; and the rather odd job title of grim reaper. Since the age of five, she has been helping the departed solve the mysteries of their deaths so they can cross. Thus, when three lawyers from the same law firm are murdered, they come to her to find their killer. In the meantime, Charley's dealing with a being more powerful - and definitely sexier - than any spectre she's ever come across before. With the help of a pain-in-the-ass skip tracer, a dead pubescent gangbanger named Angel, and a lifetime supply of sarcasm, Charley sets out to solve the highest profile case of the year and discovers that dodging bullets isn't nearly as dangerous as falling in love.
The best debut novel I've read in years! Hilarious and heart-felt, sexy and surprising, this paranormal has it all: a heroine you want to be best friends with, a mysterious dark hero and a twist at the end that'll knock your socks off. An absolute must read - I'm already begging for the next one! - Publishers Weekly
The UF genre just got a major infusion of humour and sass in the form of PI Charley Davidson (aka the Grim Reaper). Jones makes a truly memorable debut - Romantic Times
