FOR I HAVE SINNED is told from the perspective of one of Charley's customers. She is a young woman who has died but has yet to move on. She is drawn to the bright light that is Charley Davidson, who just happens to be a private investigator...and the Grim Reaper. Charley then does what she does best: helps the woman remember who she is and how she died, ties up any loose ends, and then sends her into the bright light.
I really enjoyed seeing Charley and her world through someone else's eyes. This lovely little snippet lets us learn more about Charley, who she is, and how important she is to the recently departed. FOR I HAVE SINNED has whetted my appetite even more for book 3, THIRD GRAVE DEAD AHEAD. FOR I HAVE SINNED is placed somewhere between book 2 and book 3, and probably should not be read by a first time reader. But if you love Charley Davidson, then FOR I HAVE SINNED is a definite must!
There's not a lot going on here, but there is a little bit of Reyes in the story and a peek inside Charley's psyche where he is concerned. You certainly don't have to read this one to enjoy and understand the series, but it is a little something extra for fans. It's labeled as book 1.5 in the series. But according to the author, herself, it was written after book 3 and references an event in that book. I suggest reading it after Third Grave Dead Ahead. Almost 4 stars.
That's what Charley does, among other things, she's the Grim Reaper and souls flock to her. Those souls that are unable to pass on, usually because they were murdered, seek out Charley for help in resolving the mystery! Charley is one of those characters that you wish was your best pal, her sense of humor is wicked and her loyalty knows no bounds.
I highly recommend this novellla as well as First Grave on the Right and her upcoming novel Second Grave to the Left! It's a wonderful read and the only short-coming is just that! It's to short! It has me looking forward to the next
This poor woman doesn't know who she is or how she died, but she gravitated toward Charley for help. The goal for Charley is to help her cross over, part and parcel of being the grim reaper, but this woman is confused and needs help remembering the details of her death before leaving earth.
"Is it normal for people to forget who they are after they, you know, pass?"
She shrugged while stirring her coffee. "Doesn't happen often, but it does happen. Especially if the death was particularly traumatic."
A story of courage, of heartbreak, when success happens without you. Knot-in-my-throat kind of sad. Hand-over-heart kind of joy.
Perhaps it was the POV of the character, Jo, instead of Charley that Ms. Jones considered the format? Since I've yet to embark on book #2, my hypothesis is yet unproven. Truth is, it doesn't really matter: Darynda Jones captures moments. When Charley's able to pass on a message from the departed to the suffering, she bowls me over. Charley finds a way to ease the burden of "unfinished business"; a key word or sentiment because she knows it can make a world of difference.Read more ›
