This book is probably the antithesis of a RomCom. It’s the story about what it’s like to discover you’re a messenger of death. Poor Charlie Asher thought he was just a typical guy with a small business and nice wife. Only he’s not. Apparently, he’s a Death Merchant (his job description is outlined in the Great Big Book of Death). Along with his sidekick, Minty Green, he is supposed to gather up souls before the Forces of Darkness get to them. Soon enough, Charlie finds he has to gear up for the showdown with Death himself (itself?) in this absurdly funny satire.
