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.
Even as a young child, NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Darynda Jones loved writing. She grew up spinning tales of dashing damsels and heroes in distress for any unfortunate soul who happened by. After graduating from school, she married her “rock star” and had two beautiful sons. Her oldest son was born deaf, so when he was 5 years old, she moved to Albuquerque to enroll him into a Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program. She decided to go back to school while in Albuquerque and ended up graduating Summa cum Laude from the University of New Mexico with a degree in Sign Language Interpreting. Darynda moved back to her home town and worked 3 jobs mostly teaching at a local college and interpreting pretty much everywhere. Little by little her desire to write kept growing inside her, so after several turned down attempts, she won numerous awards for her work, including a prestigious RITA, a Golden Heart, and a Daphne du Maurier. She currently has two series with St. Martin's Press, the Charley Davidson Series and the Darklight Trilogy. Darynda currently lives in New Mexico, with her husband of almost 30 years and two beautiful sons, the Mighty, Mighty Jones Boys.
