The fourth in this fun and sexy New York Times best-selling paranormal series.

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.


Yes, you do need to read or listen to the series in order. Each installment builds off the other.

Holy Moly a lot happens in the Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet in the Charley Davidson series. We get more insight into Charley and what she is capable of. It also sheds more light on what is going on with the reaper side, ghosts, and people surrounding Charley.

Cookie continues to be a great side-character. She’s Charley’s best friend and always their for her no mater how much she tries to push her away or feels it’s too dangers, Cookie is their to support and kick Charley out of her slumps when need be. I just love Cookie.

Charley’s family. I liked that we got to see the love between Charley and her sister. I felt it was extremely important especially after the events in Third Grave Dead Ahead with what her dad did. I’m still made at her dad.

Reyes… What can I say about this bad boy? Their are still so many questions surrounding him. Will he end the world or be it’s salvation? And, the chemistry between Charley and him is combustable. It continues to be strong even though Charley’s a little fed-up with him and on how he treats her. I was extremely happy to finally see them have the physical sexy times instead of in the dreams or what ever place it was.

The Narration: Ms. King continues to deliver a superb listen. Her witty tone and colorful reading add to the listeners enjoyment and brings the world and characters to life. I’m very much enjoying the audio for the Charley Davidson series.

This series continues to entertain and intrigue. If you enjoy snarky humor and a good mystery then I recommend giving the Charley Davidson series a try. I also recommend the audio version for this series.

Rated: 4 Stars
