Second in the Darynda Jones' award-winning paranormal series that's "hilarious and heartfelt, sexy and surprising." (J.R. Ward)

When Charley Davidson and Cookie (her best friend/receptionist) have to track down a missing woman, the case is not quite as open and shut as they anticipate. A friend of Cookie's named Mimi disappeared five days earlier. This friend then sends Cookie a cryptic message telling them to meet her at a nearby coffee shop. The coffee is brewing, but Mimi's still missing. There is, however, a clue left on the bathroom wall: a woman's name, scribbled by Mimi. Mimi's husband explains that his wife had been acting strange since she found out an old friend of hers from high school had been murdered a couple weeks prior. The same woman Mimi had named in her message.

Meanwhile, Reyes Alexander Farrow (otherwise known as the Son of Satan. Yes. Literally) has left his corporeal body and is haunting Charley. He's left his body because he's being tortured by demons who want to lure Charley closer. But Reyes can't let that happen. Because if the demons get to Charley, they'll have a portal to heaven. And if they have a portal to heaven…well, let's just say it wouldn't be pretty. Can Charley handle hot nights with Reyes and even hotter days tracking down a missing woman? Can she keep those she loves out of harm's way? And is there enough coffee and chocolate in the world to fuel her as she does?
Here is your signpost for the most hilarious read of the summer: Second Grave On The Left.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 cas | 6/6/2017

    " This is a fun series about a great reaper who is just a cool girl "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeanette | 2/18/2014

    " IF, and I mean a big IF; I had a gripe, it would be that I couldn't know how things evolve with Charley and Reyes in one book. Again...the wit, humor & characters that this book consists of just keeps me yearning for more. In book 2 of this series, things get more heated, characters become more familiar, cases become more consistent and heck, everything just comes together. Then again, that's what a great book does! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cori | 2/16/2014

    " Grim reaper and the son of Satan, lots of humor, solving mysteries. What isn't there to love?! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/6/2014

    " Absolutely silly, but really fun to read. I like the world building, with the good and bad blurring the lines a bit. A sassy, smart mouth grim reaper, who is anything but grim is a fun character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Brandi | 1/27/2014

    " Loved it! I'm hopelessly hooked on this series. Good thing I took out the second and third from the library at the same time. In my opinion, characters make the story and in these novels the characters rock. The main character is spunky, smart, with just the right amount of heart vs head. The romance isn't all-prevailing and predictable but is well placed and juicy. thanks Ms. Jones! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Cardwell | 1/24/2014

    " I was literally laughing out loud while reading this book (my bf thinks i'm crazy). I loved the characters and especially Charley. I love that she's a badass who doesn't really seem like a badass and has a smart comment for EVERYTHING. Loved it! Can't wait 1 week for the next one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 1/19/2014

    " Another good one. Now onto book three! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen Bishop | 12/20/2013

    " ...a great combination of fiction, personality, smart-ass comments, family issues, friends working together plus the supernatural and demons! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jaime | 12/20/2013

    " Amusing but getting a little too silly for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelli | 12/8/2013

    " This is a good paranormal romance/mystery series that I recommend for folks who like a sarcastic, stubborn, female character. I've always said that if you like Stephanie Plum books and don't mind the paranormal element, give these a try. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teri | 7/16/2013
