Publisher's Summary

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Darynda Jones comes a new story in her Charley Davidson series...

The job should have been easy. 

Get in. Assess the situation. Get out. But for veteran tracker Quentin Rutherford, things get sticky when the girl he’s loved since puberty shows up, conducting her own investigation into the strange occurrences of the small, New Mexico town. He knew it would be a risk coming back to the area, but he had no idea Amber Kowalski had become a bona fide PI, investigating things that go bump in the night. He shouldn’t be surprised, however. She can see through the dead as clearly as he can. The real question is, can she see through him? 

But is anything that’s worth it ever easy?

To say that Amber is shocked to see her childhood crush would be the understatement of her fragile second life. One look at him tells her everything she needs to know. He’s changed. So drastically she barely recognizes him. He is savage now, a hardened - in all the right places - demon hunter, and she is simply the awkward, lovestruck girl he left behind.

But she doesn’t have time to dwell on the past. A supernatural entity has set up shop, and it’s up to them to stop it before it kills again.

While thousands of questions burn inside her, she has to put her concern over him, over what he’s become, aside for now. Because he’s about to learn one, undeniable fact: she’s changed, too.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new listeners, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

What the critics say

“Narrator Lorelei King provides an entertaining and skilled performance of this audiobook…. King keeps listeners' attention throughout the fast-paced story. She expertly switches between the various characters' unique voices. Though this is only a taste of the series, King's narration will entice listeners to order the full meal.” AudioFile Magazine

Amber and Quentin

This is about Amber and Quentin, all grown up. A fun mini novella for all Charley Davidson fans. It’s Darynda Jones, of course it is good.

Disappointed :(

I was so hoping that this story would continue to move the series towards Beep & Osh. I didn’t even feel like I knew the Quintin & Amber characters. As always though, Lorelei King was fabulous.

Short but fun.

If you enjoyed the Charley Davidson books, you’ll like this novella as well. I always liked Quentin and Amber’s characters, so it was interesting to find out what had become of them after the Thirteenth Grave book ended. (I’m hoping that there will be more about them in future books.)

Q&A investigation is all grown up!!!

I have been listening to the Charley Davidson books for years. Darynda Jones has become one of my favorite authors! It was great to hear what happened to Quentin and Amber when they grew up. I hope this isn't the last we hear from them.

Super happy to see Amber and Quentin's story!!

The Charley Davidson series is one of my favorites. This book is really sweet and edgy, interesting and suspenseful. Another home run for Darynda and Lorelei.

The best story teller ever

Darynda Jones is one if my favorites and I absolutely love Lorelei king as a narrator and a narrator can make or break a book…. And his book didn’t disappoint at all! Just as I expected of them.

Lovely to read old friends again

For fans of the Charley Davidson universe, this is a little nugget of joy. Lorelei is one of my top 5 narrators. She takes a good story and makes it riveting.

Amber and Quintan.

Loved it, wish it was longer. I feel that this could easily have been made into a full length book. Always love the T-shirt slogans. Narrator was awesome as usual.

Great Story!

This is an author who never disappoints and a narrator who brings the story to life! There is action, heat, and a world that springs to life at the hands of these two gifted ladies. Highly recommend anything they have their talents involved in!
