Charley Davidson is the grim reaper though she has been trying to avoid her destiny which refuses to be denied.
Being the grim reaper can be quite grim at times. Charley has taken a couple of months off to wallow in self-pity as her last case went very wrong. Charley forces herself to rise above her self-pity or at least get dressed when a woman shows up on her doorstep because the woman is convinced someone is trying to kill her. Charley knows something is off when everyone that knows the woman tries to tell Charley that the woman is insane. The more the people dispute the story the more Charley is convinced it is true.
Meanwhile, Reyes Farrow, also known as the sexy, sultry son of Satan is finally out of prison and out of Charley’s life. Which was what she wished for and after several perfectly timed death threats. Though his absence has put a crimp in her sex life. Charley is having a hard time staying away even with other considerations like the fact that Albuquerque has been taken hostage by an arsonist. What makes everything worse is that Reyes might be involved too.
Just when Charley thought her life was getting back to normal.
