Review: Third Grave Dead Ahead By: Darynda Jones

Third Grave Dead Ahead (Charley Davidson #3)Third Grave Dead Ahead by Darynda Jones
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Remember that show Dead Like me? A cult classic, filled with humor, sarcasm, and drama. Get your weekly lesson of life through a dead girl carrying out her penance as a reaper.. I loved that show, and now I can understand the addiction I have to this series.

Charley Davidson is the grim reaper, but not in the historical sense that most of us have been raised to believe. She is the beacon of light that the dead must use as a gate into heaven. Charley is also a Private Investigator whose father retired from the Albuquerque Police and her uncle who still works there.

Being the reaper has its advantages especially in her line of work, afterall the dead easily find her and always have their tale to tell.

In this book Charley must deal with her father's demand to change jobs, Reyes Farrow's escape from prison, a husband that has a missing wife and a history of losing women in the past, a biker gang with a problem of someone poisoning their dogs, and the search for Earl Walker - the man Reyes was in prison for killing.

With excellent storyline that is a roller coaster ride, characters that are wonderfully written and so dimensional that they float off the page into life. You can not go wrong diving into this series.
