Charlie has a new job, he’s the harbinger of death. Sometimes he is sent as a courtesy, sometimes as a
warning. He gets to travel, and he meets interesting people, some of whom are actually pleased to see him. But the end of all things is coming. Charlie's boss, Death, and his three associates are riding out, and it's Charlie's job to go before.
Some have said this book has not plot, and in a way, it doesn't. What it does have is a unique look at life and death and a humorous streak that runs through the entire piece. The story is purely character driven. The reader meets people at the end of their lives through Charlie’s interactions with them. If you love characters, humor and are up for an unorthodox look at the four horsemen, this is the book for you.
