Charlie Asher es dueño de un edificio en San Francisco, tiene una tienda de objetos de segunda mano y está casado con una mujer guapa e inteligente que lo quiere por ser tan normal. Sí, a Charlie le van bien las cosas... hasta el día en que nace su hija, Sophie. Justo cuando se dispone a irse a casa, ve junto a la cama de su mujer a un extraño que asegura que nadie debería poder verlo. Pero Charlie lo ve y, de allí en adelante, comienzan a suceder cosas muy raras: la gente cae muerta a su alrededor, cuervos gigantes se posan en su edificio y parece que, allá donde va, oye susurros de una presencia siniestra. / Charlie Asher is a pretty normal guy, the kind of fellow who makes his way through life by being careful and constant. And Charlie's been lucky. He's married to a bright and pretty woman who actually loves him for his normalcy, and who is about to have their first child. Yes, Charlie's doing okay. That is, until the day his daughter, Sophie, is born. Just as Charlie turns to go home, he sees a strange man in mint-green golf wear at his wife's bedside, a man who claims that no one should be able to see him. But see him Charlie does, and from here on out, things get really weird... People start dropping dead around him. It seems that everywhere he goes, a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Strange names start appearing on his nightstand notepad, and before he knows it, those people end up dead, too. Yup, it seems that Charlie Asher has been recruited for a new job, an unpleasant but utterly necessary one: Death. It's a dirty job. But hey, somebody's gotta do it.

1.0 A Dirty Job
This book could have been so good but the liberal use of f-bombs and incessant cries for the main character to get laid made the book read like it was for a pre-pubescent male. I just couldn't finish it even though I wanted to know how the actual plot wrapped up. When the main character started to h...

0.0 Pure Moore
Or should that be puerile Moore? I don't know why I enjoy his potty-mouth style of writing but I do. I guess maybe it's because, vocabulary aside, he spins a pretty good yarn and populates it with some pretty off the wall characters, especially the secondary characters and their attendant running ga...
