Sept tombes et pas de corps, Darynda Jones

Leur but : me tuer, moi, Charley Davidson, faucheuse hors du commun et détective privée à mes heures, et rapporter mon cadavre à Satan. Mais j’ai d’autres chats à fouetter : comme mon père disparu alors qu’il menait une enquête des plus étranges ou encore mon ex-meilleure amie qui me hante nuit et jour, une épidémie de suicides qui laisse les autorités perplexes et mon fiancé qui s’est attiré...
