Sometimes being the grim reaper really is that. Grim. And since Charley’s last case went so awry, she has taken a couple months off to wallow in the wonders of self-pity. But when a woman shows up on her doorstep convinced someone is trying to kill her, Charley has to force herself to rise above. Or at least get dressed. She quickly realizes something is amiss when everyone the woman knows swears she’s insane. The more they refute the woman’s story, the more Charley believes it.
In the meantime, the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, has been cleared of all charges. He is out of prison and out of Charley’s life, as per her wishes and several perfectly timed death threats. But his absence has put a serious crimp in her sex life. While there are other things to consider, like the fact that the city of Albuquerque has been taken hostage by an arsonist.
Darynda Jones can't seem to go wrong in my opinion! 18 pages in and I am laughing out loud at the antics and banter of Charley and Cookie. Charley hasn't left her house in 2 months since her attack by Earl Walker, and her family and friends are starting to worry. But then she gets a new case that brings her back to life, and back to Reyes Farrow. No matter what Charley says, Reyes will never be far away. The Bandits make an appearance, and Charley has issues, fights, and compromises with her family. Another wonderful addition to the Charley Davidson storyline.
