Publisher's Summary

This audiobook includes a wonderful dedication to the longtime narrator of the series, Lorelei King, read by the author.
In a small village in New York, Charley Davidson is living as Jane Doe, a girl with no memory of who she is or where she came from. So when she is working at a diner and slowly begins to realize she can see dead people, she's more than a little taken aback. Stranger still are the people entering her life. They seem to know things about her. Things they hide with lies and half truths. Soon she senses something far darker. A force that wants to cause her harm, she is sure of it. Her saving grace comes in the form of a new friend she feels she can confide in and the fry cook, a devastatingly handsome man whose smile is breathtaking and touch is scalding. He stays close, and she almost feels safe with him around.
But no one can outrun their past, and the more lies that swirl around her - even from her new and trusted friends - the more disoriented she becomes, until she is confronted by a man who claims to have been sent to kill her. Sent by the darkest force in the universe. A force that absolutely will not stop until she is dead. Thankfully she has a rottweiler. But that doesn't help in her quest to find her identity and recover what she's lost. That will take all her courage and a touch of the power she feels flowing like electricity through her veins. She almost feels sorry for him. The devil in blue jeans. The disarming fry cook who lies with every breath he takes. She will get to the bottom of what he knows if it kills her. Or him. Either way.

I couldn't put it down!

I listened to the entire book in one day. I loved it, it was action packed, funny and just amazing! I can't wait for the next one!
As usual, Lorelei King was flawless, she is so good that Darynda Jones actually dedicated this book to her! When does that happen?!

- The Mays "I love urban fantasy, paranormal romance, YA, and dystopian. My favorite authors are Ilona Andrews and Kim Harrison."

This was a disappointment for me

I have been a fan of the Charley Davidson series since the beginning, but I did not enjoy this book at all. At the beginning of the book Charley has amnesia, she works in a diner, all her friends are there and pretend not to really know her. By the end of the book Charley has amnesia, she works in a diner, all her friends are there and pretend not to really know her.

Not quite half way through the book, I lost interest, Other elements of the story felt contrived and ridiculous. I resisted many urges to skip to the end, and forced myself to finish the book for the sake of the series.

Lorelei King's performance was as great as always. One of my favorite narrators.
