Garrett's ire skyrocketed so fast he saw stars. Just like she knew it would. The scene was played to orchestral perfection. Each line delivered with just the right pause. Just the right inflection. The man's expression full of menace. Hers full of fear, yet her chin lifted in defiance. 

Garrett had been played like a heated game of Monopoly. (p.22)

The Graveyard Shift by Darynda Jones (Charley Davidson series #13.5) was published on June 9th, 2020 by 1001 Dark Nights Press.

  1. Hi Laura,

    This probably isn't a book for me, despite the intriguing extracts you shared today. The series is far too firmly entrenched for me to break in, although I love the amazing cover art.

    I checked Darynda out on 'Fantastic Fiction' a site I find really useful for putting books into series and chronological order, and I see that there is another book in the '1001 Dark Nights' series due out next year.

    I must admit that I was a bit confused about the sudden change in cover art strategy so far into an established series, but perhaps, not having read any of the books, there is something I am fundamentally missing! See what you think...


    Thanks for sharing :)


    1. Yvonne,
      The change in cover art is because the two novellas while they are part of the Charley Davidson world, are part of the 1001 Dark Nights series which has many different authors.
      Thanks for coming by and checking it out and for sharing that site.

  2. Sounds like an intense story that would keep me turning pages. Thanks for sharing.

  3. This does sound intriguing. Not my usual read, but I would try it.

  4. I read the first book in this series some time ago, but it just didn't grab me. I'm glad to know that it's a series you're enjoying.

  5. This sounds really intense! I'd probably go for it. Thanks for sharing!
