Charley Davidson isn't your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper. She's more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire. However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case. Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth...but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason. When it becomes apparent that her own sister, Gemma, is the serial killer's next target Charley has no choice but to ask for Reyes' help. Arsonist or not, he's the one man alive who could protect Gemma no matter who or what came at her. But he wants something in return. Charley. All of her, body and soul. And to keep her sister safe, it is a price she is willing to pay.

Charley Davidson is at it again in Fifth Grave Past the Light , the sexy, suspenseful, and laugh-out-loud funny fifth installment of the New York Times bestselling series by Darynda Jones.

Oh my gosh, I love her writing style. I really have trouble putting her books down. You HAVE to start at the beginning of the series though.

Picked up the book when the library opened and started reading at bed time. Bed time? What is that. I read until I finished it at 4 in the morning.

I like all of her books. This one, there wasn't quite as much violence, there were some disconnects (about the asylum ownership) and I can't say that I am quite clear on whether she intends to write any more of this series, as there wasn't any chaptizing of a possible first chapter of a new book.

Now I just need to see if I can find "Death and the Girl Next Door" and "Death, Doom and Detention" and especially, the short novella "For I Have Sinned" (aka Charley Davidson #1.5)
