Grim Reaper's Dance by Judy Clemens (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
Gilbert gives Casey just the right note of pluck despite her vulnerability….Filled with quirky characters (including the sympathetic Casey) and small-town charm, this will be popular with the cozy crowd.
Casey and Death have hitched a desperate ride away from disaster only to have the semitruck they are riding in crash. Before he dies, the trucker whispers to Casey about a stash hidden in the truck, a collection of information pointing to some kind of conspiracy, and warns her to keep it away from “them.”
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch.

Casey Maldonado and Death have hitched a desperate ride away from one disaster only to find themselves in the middle of another. The semitruck they are traveling in crashes, and before the Grim Reaper takes Evan the Trucker away, Evan whispers to Casey about a stash hidden in the truck that she should keep away from “them.”
The stash turns out to be photos, truck manifests, and other information pointing Casey toward something big and complicated. Whether it’s conspiracy, smuggling, or blackmail, she can’t be sure. Uncertain how to proceed, she is led by Death to a group of teenagers looking for something other than dust and crops to fill their days and nights. Using their limited resources, she finds her way into a maze of greed and desperation—and into the clutches of people who don’t care who gets hurt, as long as they get what they want.
