With Beep's imminent arrival, Reyes' strange behavior, Hell Hounds caging her in, and numerous lurking threats, Charley doesn't have much energy left for solving Cases, but cases seem to find her wherever she decides to go.

Eighth Grave After Dark
is the eighth Charley Davidson novel and a pivotal book in the series. While the prior books were each focused on various intertwined problems/cases, this installment seems much more of a meandering jumble, but it's an incredibly informative jumble riddled with twists, turns, and answers to long standing questions galore . . . and raises a whole slew of new questions. We also get a brief glimpse at a second viewpoint character.

Eighth Grave After Dark is an adult, urban fantasy and contains:
  • Profanity (F word, *ss, sh*t, etc)
  • Description of childbirth
  • Detailed sex scene (includes oral)
  • Murder
  • Reference to rape
  • Suicide
  • Permanent destruction of souls
Fans of the series will find it somewhat lighter on sex than prior books.

While this book/series does reference God, demons, Lucifer, Hell, Heaven and various other biblical figures/places/theology, it is not and does not claim to be a Christian book. Christian readers will find many views and elaborations etc that do not fit with Christian theology.
