Author of DEAD IS BETTER, DEAD IS BEST, DEAD IS GOOD and DEAD IS BEAUTIFUL from Fahrenheit Press:
"...unique series about a dead man and his dog. I love her writing and I love the extraordinarily original setting of a detective ghost story. Amazingly clever and deeply satisfying."––Eric Idle
"...wickedly entertaining hardboiled supernatural deftness."
"Like 'The Wire' meets The Tibetan Book of the Dead."––Derek Farrell
"...one of today's best-written and most imaginative series. There's nothing like it."––Timothy Hallinan
"DEAD IS BETTER is not just beautifully written but weirdly moving and funnier than death should be and with a dog like Rosie, the afterlife is sweeter than I could have ever hoped for."

"NOBODY ELSE writes books like these. ...enter a world you won't forget... I love love love Charlie and Rose, dead or not." ––Timothy Hallinan
"According to Jo Perry’s highly original dark, and witty novel, the dead are not only with us,
they’re frustrated, confused, snarky and hilarious. Perry’s protagonist...a recently murdered successful businessman and self-described nebbish, narrates his bizarre otherworld adventures accompanied by an equally-deceased mongrel dog who, in truth, seems smarter than he. . . .Stone’s narration is as engaging, suspenseful and flat out funny as a Ted talk given by a top standup raconteur -- living or dead, take your pick." ––Dick Lochte
“The best time I’ve had with a dead person since my gross anatomy class in medical school. The bittersweet charm of our deceased narrator had me from page one.” ––H. Lee Kagan, essayist and contributing writer for Discover Magazine
"Her voice is so distinctive, and her stories curl around you in such an intimate way.
She’s dark and she’s light and she plays with the shades in between with the deftness of an artist. "
A perfect blend of classic crime school meets metaphysical noir . Skillfully executed and elegantly written ...
The trick which Perry pulls of is utterly successful . Five Stars. A treat." ––The Bookologist
“Touching, intelligent, moving, funny, frustrating, unique and marvellous. I dare you not to fall in love with these books.” ––Martin Gore, The Beardy Book Blogger, UK
