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 "

Bestseller Jones's 10th Charley Davidson novel (after The Dirt on Ninth Grave) opens with an arresting sentence: "Ignoring the dead girl standing next to me, I crossed my bare feet on the cool windowsill, took a sip of piping-hot coffee, and watched the emerging sunrise from my third-story apartment window." For the uninitiated, Davidson soon reveals herself to be a deity. She's married to the worst of the three gods of Uzan, Reyes, who "destroyed worlds and obliterated life wherever he went." In addition, Charley's own daughter is "destined to defeat Satan and save the world." Providing contrast with the high stakes of this backstory and the eventual mystery plot are snatches of snarky humor (for example, Charley refuses to be friends with the archangel Michael because he once tried to kill her). And despite Reyes's reputation for evil, Charley can't keep her eyes or hands off his "perfect ass." This mix of romance, mystery, and the supernatural may be an acquired taste, but series fans will be enthralled. Agent: Alexandra Machinist, ICM Partners. (June)
