Casey Maldonado and Death have hitched a desperate ride away from one disaster only to find themselves in the middle of another. The semitruck they are traveling in crashes, and before the Grim Reaper takes Evan the trucker away, Evan whispers to Casey about a stash hidden in the truck that she should keep away from "them." The stash turns out to be photos, truck manifests, and other information pointing Casey toward something big and complicated. Whether it's conspiracy, smuggling, or blackmail, she can't be sure. Uncertain how to proceed, she is led by Death to a group of teenagers looking for something other than dust and crops to fill their days and nights. Using their limited resources, she finds her way into a maze of greed and desperation--and into the clutches of people who don't care who gets hurt, as long as they get what they want.

A darker tale than most cozies--how can it not be, when Death is a character, and a capricious, merry one at that--this is a compelling story and it left me wanting to read more about Casey and her unwanted companion.

This book was outstanding. The writer had you on the edge of your seat wondering who the killer or killers was?

I liked it...but didn't love it. Too much improbable for me, but I did like the addition of Death. Believe it or not, he's conscience and comic relief, all rolled up together.

p 149
Death wandered towards the woman, who had placed the cigarette between her lips and puled out her lighter. She flicked on a flame and held it to the cigarette.
Death blew it out.
The woman flicked it once more, and once more Death extinguished it, giggling.
Again and again the woman tried, until she finally threw the lighter onto the parking lot and stormed into the building.
"you're cruel," Casey said.
"I would've thought you'd be glad of my intervention. Because of me she will live a few minutes longer, having not had that cigarette."
