Charlie and Rose return in dead is good June, 2017
From FAHRENHEIT PRESS
Advance praise for DEAD IS GOOD:
"Jo Perry's DEAD IS GOOD is the best book yet in a solid-gold series: funny, sad, suspenseful, and totally original.
They're set in a world in which the dead can observe the living -- including those they love -- but can't lend a hand.
And her often-beautiful prose is uniquely her own."
––Timothy Hallinan, celebrated author of the Junior Bender, Poke Rafferty and Simon Grist mysteries.
"Dead is Good is a metaphysical detective novel: a meditation on the meaning of life—and of death.
It’s also an evocative and wickedly funny portrait of Los Angeles, a city whose disparate communities barely seem to connect.
But connect they do, and Perry draws the line between exploited downtown garment workers and ostentatious
Beverly Hills McMansions with the sarcastic, chronically dissatisfied Charlie and his sweet-tempered dog, Rose as our guides.
Sure, they’re both dead, but they live and breathe as characters whom you want so much to find some form of peace and happiness.
I can’t wait for their next case."
––Lisa Brackmann, critically-acclaimed author of Dragon Day, Rock, Paper, Scissors, The Go-Between and other thrillers.
