The New York Times bestseller from Darynda Jones, Seventh Grave and No Body, puts Charley Davidson in the line of more fires than she may be able to handle...

Twelve. Twelve of the deadliest beasts ever forged in the fires of hell have escaped onto our plane, and they want nothing more than to rip out the jugular of Charley Davidson and serve her lifeless, mangled body to Satan for dinner. So there's that.

But Charley has more on her plate than a mob of testy hellhounds. For one thing, her father has disappeared, and the more she retraces his last steps, the more she learns he was conducting an investigation of his own, one that has Charley questioning everything she's ever known about him. Add to that an ex-BFF who is haunting her night and day, a rash of suicides that has authorities baffled, and a drop-dead sexy fiancé who has attracted the attentions of a local celebrity, and Charley is not having the best week of her life. But all of that combined barely scratches the surface of her problems.

Recent developments—and a few distressing prophesies—have forced her to become a responsible adult. Exactly the kind of adult she's never aspired to be. To conquer such a monumental task, she's decided to start small. Really small. She gets a pet. But how can she save the world against the forces of evil when she can't even keep a goldfish alive?

A tad north of hell, a hop, skip, and a jump past the realm of eternity, is a little place called Earth, and Charley Davidson, grim reaper extraordinaire, is determined to do everything in her power to protect it.
We're doomed.

DEATH BY DECEIT is Book #5 in the Bestselling Caribbean Murder series, which begins with the FREE book DEATH BY HONEYMOON (Book #1)--a #1 Bestseller!

Cindy and Mattheus, finally together, prepare to take time off and live together—when a stunning upset in their relationship tears them apart. Cindy flies home to New York, resigned to never work as a detective—and never see Mattheus—again. 

And then a shocking phone call comes out of the blue: it is Mattheus. A new body has turned up. Cindy at first refuses—until he tells her who it is: his wife. They finally found her, on the shores of Key West. Brutally murdered, they suspect, by an abusive boyfriend. 

Mattheus’ world is upside down, and Cindy has no choice but to fly back down to the islands and help him uncover what really happened. Why did she turn up now, after so many years? How did she turn up in Key West, so far from where he’d last seen her? Why had she never contacted him? Who was she dating? And have the police caught the right man? 

Their investigation takes them deep into the underworld of Key West, a gorgeous, idyllic place where the locals gather to watch the sunset every night with an evening drink. It is an enchanting place—but as Cindy learns, it is also a place with a dark underbelly. Cindy prods deeper into the murder and her investigation takes her into the world of an abused woman’s shelter. Soon, she is convinced the police have the wrong man. She and Mattheus, thrown together again, reconsider their feelings for one another. But there may not be time: Cindy finds out too much and comes in danger herself. As the murder hits too close to home, it may be too late for them both. 

DEATH BY DECEIT is both a stand-alone novel, and is also Book #5 in the Caribbean Murder series. Books #6--#9 in the series are now also available!

DEATH BY DEVOTION is Book
#9 in the Bestselling Caribbean Murder series, which begins with the free book
DEATH BY HONEYMOON (Book #1). 



Before
they get engaged, Cindy urges Mattheus to meet his long-lost Caribbean
daughter, whom he has never met.  Sixteen
years ago, after a one night stand, the woman became pregnant, and Mattheus
quickly left. Mattheus’ beautiful, volatile, fifteen year old daughter, Andrea,
badly needs him, and she wants him to come to Anguilla, where she lives, so
they can get to know each other. One caveat, though: he has to come without
Cindy. Andrea has a mother, and one mother is enough. Mattheus feels his
daughter is in trouble, feels compelled to go, and abruptly leaves Cindy
behind.



Convinced that her relationship with Mattheus is over, Cindy returns to the
States, ready to start her life again. A few days after she gets back, amidst
the excitement and a wonderful job offer, she receives a startling call from
Mattheus down in Anguilla: Andrea’s stepfather has been killed and Andrea was
found beside him, covered in his blood. Mattheus, desperate, begs Cindy to come
down and help. Not only has his daughter been taken into custody—but now he is
a suspect as well.



Unable to say no, Cindy returns to the Caribbean to help find the true killer
and to attempt to free both Mattheus and his daughter—but she soon finds that
she’s up against an underground web of danger on the island, and it may be too
late to save all of them—including herself.


DEATH BY DEVOTION is both a stand-alone novel, and is also Book #9 in the
Caribbean Murder series.
