First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones

Charley Davidson, Book 1

Synopsis : A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson — part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper.

Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to ‘go into the light’. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life…and it turns out he might not be dead after all. In fact, he might be something else entirely.

Charley Davidson is a Grim Reaper, the only one who exists. Her name is a little original, but she is very proud of it.

But this time, Charley has to deal with the murder of three lawyers, and she has to face the lover of her dreams that she doesn’t know anything about.
