The Curse of Tenth Grave (Charley Davidson #10)
St. Martin's Press / June 28, 2016 / $26.99 print, $12.99 digital
Charley Davidson is back. Back in Albuquerque and back in her right mind. Good luck with that. She’s also back to doing what she does best, getting into trouble–I mean, private investigating.
Darynda Jones has returned our favorite attention-deficit grim reaper to her old stomping grounds in New Mexico, but life doesn’t always go smoothly for Charley. Charley is settling back into her old life, but she is missing her daughter, missing her father, and not missing her step-mother. On the plus side, she has a new case to investigate but there is something peculiar about being called in by the ADA to investigate a murder charge on behalf of the defendant, especially when said ADA is not a fan of yours.
I drew a deep, cleansing breath. “No, you’re right. I need to just put on my granny panties and deal. We have a case. No more thongs for me.”
“We have a case?” she teased.
“A real one,” I said with a nod. “And according to Nick the Pri—Nick Parker, an innocent man could go to prison if we don’t figure out who really killed his girlfriend, Emery Adams.”
“See? It’s good to keep busy. Keeps your mind off all the other, total-annihilation-and/or-death-by-an-angry-celestial-being stuff.”
