Sixth Grave on the Edge

Sixth Grave on the Edge
by Darynda Jones

It's just a normal week in the life of PI and Grim Reaper, Charley Davidson.

There's an old, naked, VERY well-endowed ghost riding in the front seat of her jeep.

There's a demon buying souls to eat and a desperate human who wants his back.

There's a looming threat on her life and the life of a friend.

And there's the steaming hot neighbor who is waiting for an answer to his simple yes/no question.

Nope!  Nothing out of the ordinary here.

Final thoughts:  Messy.  I LOVE Charley and her stories, but this one just seemed like an effort to remind readers of all the important characters, while setting up for the big final conflict.  Her dad and evil step-monster pop in for one plot set-up that doesn't get resolved here, but looks like it may in the next book.  The detective plot really is not much to work with.  There are a ton of B-, C-, and even D-plot things going on, but not much for the plot overall.  And I soooo predicted the final scene books ago.  Hopefully the next will be better since I really want to finish this series out with a bang and not a whimper.

Rating: 3/5
