Publisher's Summary

Mike is a tattoo artist running his own shop, and Deb is the piercing artist he hires to round out his studio’s motley crew of four. The last either expects is romance, but that’s what they get as they follow their off-kilter careers and love lives into complete and total disaster. When Mike follows a growing trend and tattoos the ashes of deceased loved ones into several customers’ tattoos, he has no idea that it will one day provide the solution - and solace - he will sorely need. And when the life of a serial killer tragically collides with the lives in the tattoo shop, Mike and Deb will stop at nothing in their quest for revenge, even if it means stepping outside the known boundaries of life and death. Ink that is full of crematory ashes, a sociopathic killer, and pain in its rawest form…this is going to hurt.When the hope of redemption runs headlong into the dark side of life’s chaos, we are left with one of the most haunting thrillers in recent memory. A Good and Useful Hurt delivers the bittersweet essence of life with the sting of a needle in skin.

Murder-mystery/love story/paranormal

An artistic man becomes a tattoo artist. He has a lot of pain in his life, along with a group of great friends who work in the tattoo parlor with him. Then comes love, pain and slight paranormal incidents that leave to a fairly cool and unexpected conclusion.
On sale right now (5/12/14) for a few more days, I encourage those of you who like slightly oddball but well written stories combined with one of the best narrators around..Luke Daniels has a great voice. I love his narrating.

This is my first Aric Davis book and I decided to try another one because I enjoyed this so much. Hope you do too!
