The Curse of Tenth Grave

By Darynda Jones

Signed Hardcover

If one door closes and another one opens,
your house is probably haunted.
―Bumper Sticker

As a Part-time PI and fulltime grim reaper, Charley Davidson has asked a lot of questions throughout her life: Why can I see dead people? Who is the hot supernatural entity following me? How do I get gum out of my sister’s hair before she wakes up? But, “How do I trap not one malevolent god, but three?” was never among them. Until now. And since those gods are on earth to kill her daughter, she has little choice but to track them down, trap them, and cast them from this dimension.

There’s just one problem. One of the three stole her heart a very long time ago. Can the Razer, a god of absolute death and destruction, change his omniscient spots, or will his allegiances lie with his brothers?

Those are just a few of the questions Charley must answer, and quick. Add to that a homeless girl running for her life, an innocent man who’s been charged with murdering the daughter of a degenerate gambler, and a pendant made from god glass that has the entire supernatural world in an uproar, and Charley has her hands full. If she can manage to take care of the whole world-destroying-gods thing, we’re saved. If not, well…

 

“Sexy, sassy…Jones’s characters, both living and dead, are colorful and endearing.” ―The Associated Press

“Jones makes a truly memorable debut with her unique tale that is sexy, mysterious, and sarcastically fun!” –RT book Reviews

“Jones perfectly balances humor and suspense…Will leave readers eager for her next installment.” ―Publishers Weekly
