Publisher's Summary

After a near fatal car accident, Casey Maldonado's life is over. So she packs up, puts her house on the market, and leaves town, her only companion Death, who won't take her but won't leave her alone.Casey stops in Clymer, a town in upheaval. The town's appliance factory and main employer, a company called HomeMaker, is planning to move to Mexico. Not only that, but the town has been rocked by the suicide of a beloved single mother. However, many citizens don't believe the verdict of suicide at all.Death encourages Casey to investigate, and she uncovers information that points to the factory. Did the victim truly have the means, as she claimed, to keep the factory from leaving town? Is it possible that her death was a cover-up?

Critic Reviews

"Clemens is adept at creating an appealing cast of characters while keeping the plot moving at a fast clip. Casey and Death make an oddly entertaining pair, and readers will hope to see their relationship fleshed out in future titles." (Publishers Weekly)

Interesting idea

Where does Embrace the Grim Reaper rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Interesting idea to have Death as a companion. Main character is interesting to get to know. Why is Death her companion? And what is her purpose? Worth the read and I'll be keen to read the rest of the series.

Great Read

I think this is one of the most surprising good books I have listened to in a while. I am currently up tp date on all of my book series, and I was looking for something to get me through my morning commute of 40 min.. This was perfect. I have already bought the next book.
