Charlie D is the host of a successful late-night radio call-in show. His listeners have a particularly intimate relationship with him and often reveal much about themselves, confident that he will honor their trust and that he can save them. In their minds, he is perfect: one of life's winners. But Charlie feels he's something of a fake. His easy confidence on-air belies the reality for a man born with a wine-colored birthmark that covers half his face.

Charlie, this isn't about a lonely guy who wants you to tell him it's okay to have a cyberskin love doll as his fantasy date. There's a murderer out there. We can't handle this on our own.

Love You To Death - Solid Short Story For a more in depth review, please visit my blog, Chorley Chronicals!! I had actually only requested The Thirteenth Rose, on Audiobook Jukebox, not really know that first off, it was part of a series, let alone book 4 in the series, and secondly that it was a short story! Much to my surprise, when I received the email from the Publisher, they had told me that they included the whole series for my enjoyment, if I so desired, or I was more than welcome to only read the requested book, so immediately, I was impressed with the generosity of the Publisher, so I figured the least that I could do was listen to all of them if they were going to be kind enough to give them all to me, plus, all four of them put together wasn't as long as a typical audio book normally is, so I started with this book, Love You To Death. I have to be honest and tell you that given that I had never heard of the author before, and that they were all short stories, I really wasn't expecting much with the Charley D series, but I'll be the first to admit that I was pleasantly surprised with my listening experience! I enjoyed Charley D as a character and his late-night radio broadcase/talk show and thought that the narrator, Daniel Maté, portrayed Charlie D, exactly how I would have pictured him, so bravo Daniel Maté, BRAVO!!! For a short story, I think it was the perfect length to be able to convey the story that Gail Bowen was trying to get across! It was a great introduction into the life of Charlie D and his nighttime radio show. It was interesting enough to keep me listening and to make me want to move on to the second book in the series One Fine Day You're Gonna Die. Overall, I thought that this was a great short story with good character buildup and a good plot! I was impressed with how much I liked this short story! I definitely would have given this a 3.5 rating if it were available!
