Charlie D is back doing his late-night radio call-in show. It's Halloween - The Day of the Dead. Not a day filled with good memories for Charlie, but the show must go on. His studio guest this evening is Dr. Robin Harris, an arrogant and ambitious "expert in the arts of dying and grieving," who also seems to be auditioning for her own radio talk show. Charlie and Dr. Harris do not hit it off. Things go from bad to worse when the doctor's ex-lover, Gabe, goes on air to announce that he's about to end his life. Dr. Harris is entirely unsympathetic until she learns that Gabe also has her daughter Kali and plans to poison her too. It will take all of Charlie D's on-air skills to save both Gabe and Kali. ©2010 Gail Bowen (P)2013 Post Hypnotic Press
I think that this was one of my favorite stories in the Charlie D Rapid Reads series! I thought that it helped build up Charlie D's character even more from the first story, Love You To Death but it still stood out and told it's own story.
Again, I felt like the length suited the story perfectly! It didn't feel like it was rushed or prolonged, it just fit together perfectly! The narrator, Daniel Maté, again delivers a stellar performance, probably making this series as good as it was for me!
Each story can be read separately as a stand alone or together without you feeling lost or out in left field. I think they are solid stories that are put together well!
Overall, I wouldn't hesitate to pick up another book by Gail Bowen because I found her Charlie D series to be rather entertaining!
