Publisher's Summary

Third in the award-winning paranormal series that’s “hilarious and heartfelt, sexy and surprising.” (J.R. Ward)

Paranormal private eye. Grim reaper extraordinaire. Whatever. Charley Davidson is back in Darynda Jones' Third Grave Dead Ahead! And she’s drinking copious amounts of caffeine to stay awake because, every time she closes her eyes, she sees him: Reyes Farrow, the parthuman, part-supermodel son of Satan. Yes, she did imprison him for all eternity, but come on. How is she supposed to solve a missing persons case, deal with an ego-driven doctor, calm her curmudgeonly dad, and take on a motorcycle gang hellbent on murder when the devil’s son just won’t give up?

    "Found a new author and narrator"

    Awesome....witty....funny..... sensual.
    The cover captured my attention and the story background interested me. Wow..this is book three. and now Books one and two are on my wish list. Interesting side note on the audios end, of the Interview with Darynada Jones by Lorelei King.

    If your a Molly Haper fan.....and waiting for another interesting audio...check out Darynada Jones.

    "Love this series..."

    I would definitely recommend this book and, so far, this series. If you're looking for pure entertainment, these books fill the bill. I listen to my books as I walk every morning and I wonder what people think as I laugh out loud at Charlie and her zany cohorts, alive and departed. I must say that Lorelei King gives a superb performance. I'm never in any doubt as to which character she is portraying...great range vocally and emotionally. I've always been an avid reader, but Its a very different experience listening to a narrator's interpretation of books. You won't be disappointed with Lorelei King or Darynda Jones.

    "OMG, Charley is a riot! These books are AWESOME!!"
    Where does Third Grave Dead Ahead rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This year, it's the best. Without a doubt.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Third Grave Dead Ahead?

    Oh, when Charley finally meets the gang who owns the mental hospital where she goes to talk to Rocket. I loved this whole scene! Was funny and touching, and why I love Charley so much.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It's hard to choose, there are so many great scenes, but I love when Charley and Reyes come face to face for the first time since she's bound him to his physical body.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Hilarity abounds w/ Charley Davidson is around!


    Any additional comments?

    This is the BEST series I've listened to this year ~ the stories are incredible, and filled w/ hilarity, but Lorelei King adds to that w/ her awesome narration...she does these voices SO well, it's as if she were born to be Charley!

    If I could recommend one Audio series for everyone to listen to to judge audio books by, it would be this series, I love it that much!

    "Narration was great, story not so much"

    It seemed Charlie is getting more incompetent. She needs to grow up! For a PI, she's not very smart and yes, it's a wonder she's still alive. Her total naivete and self-involvement was irritating rather than endearing. If it weren't for the outstanding narration, I don't know that I would have listened to the whole thing.

    "To Die For"
    What did you love best about Third Grave Dead Ahead?

    Hijinks and hilarity ensue when the Grimm Reaper is on the case.

    Charley's functioning on a diet of coffee, coffee, and coffee, at this point she's more likely to be a portal to Starbucks than the other side. Her self induced insomnia is due to one scorned son of Satan passionately haunting her dreams. Every time Charley closes her eyes she's bombarded with some transcendental loving via one smoking hot Reyes Farrow. Normally a little visit from the Prince of Darkness is welcomed but the Big Bad is angry and doesn't seem to want to be with Charley in her every unwaking moment.

    Good thing there's work to fill in all her new free time not spent in bed. This go around Davidson is in search of a potential client's wife, but with Charley's semi coherent caffeinated skills she detects the good doctor isn't quite as good as he appears. Unfortunately he's also the least of Charley's man troubles. Davidson is having daddy issuses, along with running into problems with a motorcycle gang, a victim's very large brother, and a sadistic murder,on top of Reyes' big bad baby woes about being bound, leaving Charley in need of an industrial sized can of man repellent.

    Charley's going to need a triple venti latte to save a few lives, uphold her portal duties, solve the case of the doctor's missing wife, help Reyes, and start to realize exactly what a Grimm Reaper can do.

    The Charley Davidson books are probably my favorite audiobook series. The combination of Darynda Jones and Lorelei King is to die for. Third Grave Dead Ahead is another expertly narrated book. King infuses life into Jones' characters. I don't think anyone else could so genuinely portray Charley for the funny, quirky, completely oblivious, ADD prone heroine and make her even more lovable than King does. I truly believe the audiobooks provide the best experience for this series.

    Darynda Jones yet again gifts us with another outstanding book. She weaves a world rooted in reality but filled with the paranormal. I seriously wonder about Jones' mental stability since she comes up with the craziest asides in the form of Charlie's solitary thoughts. She gives us great dialogue that's full of heart and hilarity. But all the fun is just a layer of frosting on top of a deceptively strong series of story lines. You don't realize it until the end because you're enjoying the journey Jones is taking you on but each book is filled with interesting threads and an amazing series plot. Her ideas are only supported by the great line up of characters, though sometimes I think their sense of humor is a little too symbiotic. I can understand her family and friends having that kind of connection but a newly acquainted FBI agent? The weird Stepford comedic sense is the only qualm I have. Everything else was wonderful.

    Love fantasy books, usually with a strong female character. I also enjoyed just about anything from J.D Robb I am a fan of mysteries as well. I also enjoy funny and quirky novels anything from Molly Harper is a winner in my book. Since listening to audio books is important to me while I travel I also follow certain narrators as well.

    "Light Hearted and Dramatic, amazing 3rd book"

    I enjoyed the first two books, but was hooked on the third book. The series is typically light hearted and slightly dramatic. The third book went from slightly interesting to riveting. I was astonished near the end when tears came to my eyes, as I empathized with Charlie. You need to listen to the first two books to understand the third but it's worth it. The narrator is one of my favorites.

    Another in the series. If you liked the earlier ones you should like this too, I did. I really like the introduction of her new guardian.
