Paranormal PI and grim reaper Charley Davidson is back in Jones's latest spicy, funny series (after Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet). Her new next-door neighbor, the sexy Reyes Farrow, is not only the son of Satan, he's also the main suspect in an arson investigation. But when Charley's apartment fills with several dozen dead women, all blond, silent, and terrified, she knows something truly terrible is happening. Lorelei King continues to provide superb narration, adding great depth to the characters. Truly laugh-out-loud moments interspersed with high suspense and some very enlightening backstory thrown in, mixed with a handful of sizzling scenes, make a most excellent addition to the series.
VERDICT Recommended for readers who would enjoy a supernatural and snarky Stephanie Plum. [See the Q&A between author Jones and narrator King, p. 44.]
