Summary

Reaper’s work is never done.

My name is Jazz, and I’m a reaper. That sounds dark, but it’s not so bad. I’m a justice reaper, which means I send bad guys away for a very long time. This also means that when the police need help to catch bad guys, I sometimes have no choice but to step in and do my part.

Just after my best friend joins a coven, someone decides to start murdering witches, and it sure looks like the killer might actually be a vampire.

Adding to the chaos, Sir Edward, my assistant, who also happens to be a monkey, calls in Ghost Stalkers to help clear Eastwood’s underground tunnels of ghostly parasites.

Life in Eastwood can be strange, especially when you have ghosts jumping out at you from every nook and cranny, not to mention the Angel of Death, aka, the boss totally pissed about something.

Join us at The Undertaker for a Bloody Mary and some ghostly fun.

 

 

My Review

4/5 Stars

Not a typical murder mystery. Creative and unique with a mix of supernatural and psychological elements. Even though this is only a little over three hours, there are multiple storylines and plenty going on to keep you hooked.

Each of the characters had their own personality, and that helped to shape the plotline of the story. There was an awesome twist toward the end that kept me from figuring out who the real criminal was.

Even though this is #5 of a series, it’s not confusing to listen to without the first four books. The author wrote it in a way that makes it easy to drop in, but impossible to leave.

Narration was okay.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
