    Dead Is Good is Jo Perry s third novel and the latest installment in her series that follows the cynical Charlie and the loyal canine Rose in their attempts to solve crime and bring justice to those who deserve it on the mean streets of LA In this story, the pair strive to unravel the mystery of a haunting, deliberately public suicide by cop The only issue is both Charlie and Rose are dead themselves.Charlie was the victim of a road rage incident three years ago, and in death he is as dissatisfied, irreverent, and sarcastic as he was in life Rose is a sweet tempered, ever faithful dog whose miserable life ended in an extreme state of hunger and thirst and isolation In death, she has found Charlie and is his sage companion in the void of the afterlife in which he is stuck Together, they set about uncovering the events that led the young woman to kill herself in such a shocking way.This supernatural detective procedural is suspenseful, poignant, and darkly funny The mystery is straightforward, but the fascinating twist is that the protagonists cannot do anything with the information they ...

    The third in the series following the challenges of the dead when they would really like to intervene in the affairs of the living but can t In Charlie s case the only woman he ever loved is in danger of being killed in this case study.I still think the concept is charming but admit to enjoying the first two books than this third one There was a great deal of action that was on and off confusing in the midst of pinatas and social causes as Charlie and Rose investigate why the sister of the woman he loved arranged for her own suicide by cop as witnessed by Charlie and Rose Charlie finds his despicable brother involved peri...

    This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader. Oh, and after all this time I learned something else about being dead.Death is failure.Death is loss.Everything who you are, what you know goes Whoever you thought you were, you weren t and you re not.When he was alive, Charlie Stone was married multiple times to pretty horrible women if we re to believe him and we might as well, he seems pretty upfront and honest about this kind of thing , not that he was any catch, either But he really only loved one person, Grace Morgan Grace broke things off with Charlie and moved on with her life, but apparently after hearing about his murder, she was moved to change her approach to art deciding to challenge the audience, forcing them to realize how close to death they are Yeah, it sounds pretty silly and pretentious to me, but heythat s not the important part of the story Maybe if we got examples of her art, I d care and maybe even understand What is important about Grace, for our purposes, is that her life is in danger, it s because of this danger that Charlie and Rose have been brought from their afterlife limbo back to Earth The book opens with one of the blatant suicide by cop scenes you ve ever read, which is intended to serve as protection for Grace It doesn t work out, or the book would be really short Powerless to do anything but watch and hope things turn out ...

    This is the third installment of the Charlie and Rose investigations, in which a ghost and a ghost dog float around LA trying to solve mysteries If that sounds a bit bonkers, don t panic This is not a premise for a wacky cosy crime novel, but for a noir y exploration of solving mysteries when you can t actually tell anyone or influence events.I would have read this in one sitting if I could but my train got to my destination and I had to go to work I liked the previous books in the series, but I liked this This time Charlie is trying to keep his ex g...

    A truly engaging, suspenseful read It was thrilling to follow Charlie and Rose s investigations again and watch them discover what the living are not able to see I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a surprising and unconventional mystery.

    This is the third book in the Charlie Rose Investigate series, and let me tell you, although this series started out amazing, it just keeps getting better and better Dead is Better is the first, and Dead is Best is the second And, although you don t necessarily have to read them in order, I d recommend doing so It ll help you get a better hold on the story behind the lives and deaths of the heroes, Charlie Rose.Jo Perry has perfected this series down to an art form In keeping with the first 2 books in the series, each chapter starts with a death related quote from someone famous Some of my favorites in this book came from William Wordsworth, Eric Idle, the Dalai Lama, and Derek Farrell who s another wonderful Fahrenheit Press author You ll find the writing and storylines to be unique, and the heroes, too But the stories in this series are than just stories they each envelop themes of justice that are intertwined with important moral philosophies and social inequities This 3rd book is no exception, and one of the characters in the story is even quoted as being crazily committed to social justice If you follow Jo Perry on Twitter, you ll quickly learn that she also has a strong sense of ethics and morals and a great desire for social justice But she also tells it like it is in her books Despit...

    3rd in the series Again Charles and Rose are drawn into the world of the living because one of his ex wives is in danger And again they are confounded by the inability to interact or alter anything in the liv...

    I m a big fan of Jo Perry s loose style and her humour and I love Charlie and his ghost dog, the beautiful and so perceptive Rose I really enjoyed this third installment up until the end which I felt was too rushed Looking forward to number four
