Release Date: October 30/2012

Page Count: 320

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, Charley is having a difficult time staying away. Especially when it looks like Reyes may be involved. Just when life was returning to normal, Charley is thrust back into the world of crime, punishment, and the devil in blue jeans.


I'm completely new to this author AND this series (will link to other books below), but I am SO excited to see a Grim Reaper book for adults! I have only experienced one reaper book thus far (Inbetween by Tara Fuller-REVIEW), and didn't enjoy it very much. I don't want to blame the YA genre for that, but I'm interested to see if the Adult genre can pull it off better, and less predictably. I need to get my hands on the first 3 books!
