Fifth Grave Past The Light: A Starred Review

Fifth Grave Past The Light is the fantastic fifth instalment of Darynda Jones’ unmissable Charley Davidson series. Booklist have just given it an incredible starred review (below).

Fifth Grave Past The Light isn’t available until 9th July, so if you haven’t read the first fabulous four titles in the series, we suggest you get reading now!

Gutsy, wise-cracking PI has a highly unusual clientele that includes the dead as well as the living. Right now, in addition to her usual spectral guests, Charley’s apartment is filled with the ghosts of 20 blonde women, all of whom were brutally murdered by a serial killer. In fact, their deaths were so horrific they can’t speak to her—they just relive their murders over and over. Charley has other problems.

There’s the undead nurse who appears as a ghost, the naked spirit who has claimed the passenger seat in her Jeep, and the growing suspicion that Charley’s perfect crime-solving record involves more than good investigative skills. As for her love life, with incredibly handsome Reyes, the son of Satan, for a soulmate, you know that things are going to get hot.

From its unique premise to its wonderfully imaginative characters, Jones’ award-winning Charley Davidson mystery series, from First Grave on the Right (2011) onward to this fifth delectable installment, will continue to attract and delight a broad spectrum of readers.
