People start dropping dead around Charlie, giant ravens perch on his building, and it seems that everywhere he goes, a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Strange names start appearing on his nightstand notepad, and before he knows it, those people end up dead, too. Yup, it seems that Charlie Asher has been recruited for a new job, an unpleasant but utterly necessary one: Death.

I got an email or saw reference on the Audible home page - First or Favorite books to listen to (I don't exactly remember what it was called). The book, 'A Dirty Job' was raved about and highly recommended. I guess I am easily roped in, so I bought it. It was, without a doubt, the biggest waste of time, stupid, vapid, OMG blog mess of a thing I have ever listened to. Never again will I purchase a book based on a review.

Lacking - Not Worth The Wait

I really enjoy these books. I also liked the first year of True Blood - the second was lacking.
I do have to say this book was also lacking and not worth the wait.
I agree with reviewer Jamie, but I think a true fan with talent would have done a better job.
My favorite books were the first and the fourth. This book would have to be my least favorite of the series.
I didn't wait for a credit, and paid for the book.
That was probably the good news.

I love this series of books and have listened to them many times over; however, I got mine for 1 credit each when they were new. The only one I didn't buy from Audible was Breaking Dawn because it was 2 credits. There are many other books with the same price and even higher that are 1 credit. Your 'why 2 credits' excuse doesn't wash.
Let's see if you print this review.
