Private investigator (and Grim Reaper) Charley Davidson's just trying to get a good night's sleep (for once) when neighbour and best pal Cookie charges into her bedroom, desperate for help in tracking down her missing friend Mimi. Within minutes, the girls are off and running, asking a lot of questions but making little headway. Even Mimi's devoted and frantic husband Warren has no idea what's become of his wife. Where is she, why doesn't she want to be found - and more importantly, why are shady CIA types trying to track her down too?

Charley's determined to find out. She uses all avenues at her disposal - including a couple of ghostly sources - to locate Mimi, not to mention escaped con, Reyes Farrow, whose human body is still missing and being gruesomely tortured by demons. Problem is the entity that resides in Farrow's body, who also happens to be the son of Satan, not to mention the love of Charley's life, refuses to reveal his location. Why? Because the demons are using Reyes to get to Charley and if they capture her, they'll have a free pass into Heaven - and then things would get really nasty.

Sassy, quirky, and always irreverent, Charley Davidson leaves all other paranormal heroines in the dust with her shenanigans - and her unearthly, hot and poignant love affair with the son of Satan. Second Grave on the Left is a fantastic follow-up to Jones' debut novel, First Grave on the Right, and sets the tone for what's to come in Third Grave Dead Ahead, due out early next year.
