Released: Feb. 1, 2012

ELEVENTH GRAVE IN MOONLIGHT by Darynda Jones
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Jan. 24, 2017

SECOND GRAVE ON THE LEFT by Darynda Jones
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Aug. 16, 2011

"An onslaught of over-the-top, sarcastic and infantile one-liners and observations become increasingly tedious.

Grim Reaper Charley Davidson (First Grave on the Right, 2011) returns to solve a missing-person case and to protect the Son of Satan Reyes Farrow from demons. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

FIRST GRAVE ON THE RIGHT by Darynda Jones
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Feb. 1, 2011

"This first in a series ends with the son of Satan and the promise of a grand battle between good and evil, but this opening offers little more than a clever premise and a ho-hum murder mystery."
The intended laughs don't materialize in this supernatural chick-lit whodunit, featuring a back-talkin' P.I. who sees dead people. Read full book review >
