There’s one problem with Ollie Dormier’s infamous skull tattoos: her customers will be dead before their new ink heals. As an employee of Death, Ollie’s job is to tattoo her Deathmark onto unwitting and elusive humans so that their Grim Reapers can find them and ferry their souls to the Afterlife. And if she refuses? She faces a Level Ten Offense and an eternity in hell.
Once Ollie is forced to put her Deathmark on her best friend, she ignores the promise of hell to save her friend by rebelling. She throws in her lot with Brent Hume, a Reaper unlike any other. He swears he can help her, and they take off across North America with Death’s police hot on their trail. Trouble is, Ollie knows that her only chance at living to see a day free of despair is to make a deal with the Head of Death, and he has made this clear to Ollie and the rest of the world that Death despises bartering and the souls it wants are non-negotiable.
