Charlie Asher is a pretty normal guy with a normal life, married to a bright and pretty woman who actually loves him for his normalcy. They're even about to have their first child. Yes, Charlie's doing okay--until people start dropping dead around him, and everywhere he goes a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Charlie Asher, it seems, has been recruited for a new position: as Death.

It's a dirty job. But, hey Somebody's gotta do it.

Charlie Asher is a beta male, one of the countless guys who survive in the gene pool by doggie paddling in the shallow end. He doesn't take risks and he seriously hates change. But Charlie's safe life is about to take a really weird detour. On the day his daughter, Sophie, is born, his wife dies of a freak medical condition. As if being a widower and the single parent of a newborn aren't enough, soon people begin to drop dead around Charlie. Suddenly his quiet life is crowded by giant ravens, hounds from hell, a mysterious date book with a list of "appointments," a stubborn old lady who refuses to accept the inevitable, and a wily Buddhist named Audrey.
