Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet

Charley Davidson, #4

What an amazing follow-up to Third Grave! Darynda Jones is brilliant at writing smart, sexy, and sassy books that you cannot put down. Charley, for the first time, isn’t dealing well with everything that has happened. Her vulnerability made me love her even more, which I didn’t think was possible. Her complicated relationship with Reyes, her issues with her dad, and the unknown limits of her power have finally brought her low. It was like seeing a bright light almost extinguished by the trauma she is dealing with. But her wit, determination, and detective ability carry her through to the end. This is one of the smartest, most suspenseful series around and I urge everyone to take a spin with Charley Davidson.

Up until now Charley has rolled with the punches, never letting life and afterlife get her down. But after the events in Third Grave Dead Ahead, she wasn’t able to bounce back so easily. She has holed up in her apartment becoming a shopping channel junkie and refuses to talk about her ordeal. Then a young woman named Harper comes to her asking for help and Charley can’t turn her away, even if it means leaving the apartment and facing her fears. Harper is convinced that someone is trying to kill her, has been for years. As Charley investigates, it becomes clear that everyone in this girl’s life has thought she was crazy. Charley, however, is convinced that Harper is in danger and works hard to figure out who is behind the threats before it is too late.

In Darynda Jones's Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet, sometimes being the grim reaper really is that. Grim. And since Charley’s last case went so awry, she has taken a couple months off to wallow in the wonders of self-pity. But when a woman shows up on her doorstep convinced someone is trying to kill her, Charley has to force herself to rise above. Or at least get dressed. She quickly realizes something is amiss when everyone the woman knows swears she’s insane. The more they refute the woman’s story, the more Charley believes it. In the meantime, the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, has been cleared of all charges. He is out of prison and out of Charley’s life, as per her wishes and several perfectly timed death threats. But his absence has put a serious crimp in her sex life. While there are other things to consider, like the fact that the city of Albuquerque has been taken hostage by an arsonist, Charley is having a difficult time staying away. Especially when it looks like Reyes may be involved. Just when life was returning to normal, Charley is thrust back into the world of crime, punishment, and the devil in blue jeans.
