"He stole my heart, Mr. Shade. I want you to find him and steal it back."
The dead won't stay buried in Denver, so Jonathan Shade isn't too surprised when a deceased woman shows up wanting to hire him. A necromancer stalker has stolen her heart - literally - and she needs it if she's going to live.
But Shade's jobs are never simple. The dead won't leave him alone. They work for a lovesick goddess who wants Shade to turn over her former lover. Chased by zombies, and then by an army of skeletons, Shade and his magically-engineered partner, Kelly Chan, fight to stay alive.
Keep your hands and feet in the vehicle at all times, and hang on, because there are no safe exits from Acheron Highway....

A Great Story With Twists and Turns!
Yes, Acheron Highway was a worthy story to listen to again. It's a fairly short story but has a great plot and moves along at a good pace. Even though I would listen to the story again, I am more interested in listening to the other books in the series.
While listening to this story, I kept thinking how much it reminded me of The Dresden Files but with a few exceptions. Jonathan is an investigator; however, he's immune to direct magic and has no magical abilities but can see and talk to spirits. He mainly relays on others to assist him magically. Also, this story was much shorter than the average Dresden book.
I liked the scene where Jonathan goes back in time undo a terrible mistake, but I do not want to give away any of the plot.
Acheron Highway, where the blood flows.
Joe Hempel did a great job narrating the story. He used different accents, tones, and inflections, so you can easily identify the different characters.
Overall this was a great story and had plenty of action, twist, and turns.
