The New York Times bestseller from Darynda Jones, Seventh Grave and No Body, puts Charley Davidson in the line of more fires than she may be able to handle... Twelve. Twelve of the deadliest beasts ever forged in the fires of hell have escaped onto our plane, and they want nothing more than to rip out the jugular of Charley Davidson and serve her lifeless, mangled body to Satan for dinner. So there's that. But Charley has more on her plate than a mob of testy hellhounds. For one thing, her father has disappeared, and the more she retraces his last steps, the more she learns he was conducting an investigation of his own, one that has Charley questioning everything she's ever known about him. Add to that an ex-BFF who is haunting her night and day, a rash of suicides that has authorities baffled, and a drop-dead sexy fiancé who has attracted the attentions of a local celebrity, and Charley is not having the best week of her life. But all of that combined barely scratches the surface of her problems. Recent developments—and a few distressing prophesies—have forced her to become a responsible adult. Exactly the kind of adult she's never aspired to be. To conquer such a monumental task, she's decided to start small. Really small. She gets a pet. But how can she save the world against the forces of evil when she can't even keep a goldfish alive? A tad north of hell, a hop, skip, and a jump past the realm of eternity, is a little place called Earth, and Charley Davidson, grim reaper extraordinaire, is determined to do everything in her power to protect it. We're doomed.

The ability to access and economically develop vast amounts of America’s unconventional natural gas resources, especially large shale gas formations, has altered our national view on energy and has subsequently changed the discourse at the federal, state, and local levels. Since 2008, when the economic viability of shale gas resources first became widely recognized, policymakers and industry leaders have worked to better understand the nature of this resource; the risks and opportunities associated with its production, transport, and use; and the potential strategic implications of the United States’ new energy reality.

We are all interested in knowing who we are and the purpose of our lives. Our healing gives us the opportunity to understand ourselves better and therefore achieve better health. When we take more responsibility for our healing, we can expand more our levels of knowledge and welfare. During the journey you will take upon reading my book, you will fi nd the opportunity to share with me my sincere wishes to fi nd a better welfare for ourselves, as human beings, and the universe in general. I was born in Surata, Colombia. I fi nished my medical studies at the medical school of the Universidad del Valle and University Hospital in Cali, Colombia; the Lutheran Medical Center in Cleveland; and the Charity Hospital of New Orleans, Tulane Division, where I did my specialization in obstetrics and gynecology. Through my human experience, I have been in different places and at different times, but in the deepest core of my being, there has always been a need for a better relationship with myself and with my outer world. I have always wanted to vividly live more consciously, my knowledge and my experience of holistic medicine as integral as a hologram. My relationship with nature, my sports, among others, and the need to live in a family that is increasingly healthier physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually as well have been the key drivers of my enigmas and dilemmas in finding my self healing. Let us create more hope.
