Chaz Dominguez is a professional Babysitter in New Orleans, helping to integrate the recently deceased into their new and improved lives.

Nine lives are all a person can get-and a powerful group of desperate, high-level Nine-Timers will stop at nothing to possess the keys to true immortality.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A promising debut Chaz is a Babysitter for Fresh Start, the family company and the only resurrection game in town. His job is to reintegrate the newly deceased into their new bodies and lives. You see, anyone can resurrect themselves nine times (and nine times only). They can start fresh new lives and leave the past behind. Chaz’ world is filled with One-Timers (those who will not resurrect themselves), Nine-Timers (those on their last chance) and everyone in between. What starts out as a routine baby sitting job turns into something quite different, with far reaching consequences for Chaz and his family. I really liked the premise behind this book--the desperate reach for immortality and the consequences of that reach. I mean, everyone wants a chance to live forever, don’t they? This novel explores that concept and presents a reasonable picture of how the world might look if resurrection was possible. I think this was another fine debut novel.
