Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“A throw-back style detective novel that readers of all stripes should pay attention to.” —The Los Angeles Times 

Christopher just needed a job to kill time the summer after graduation. He didnt expect to stumble across a murder cover-up when he was hired as a janitor at the morgue. With the sheriff as his prime suspect, he turns to Tina, a gorgeous newspaper reporter, to help him get to the bottom of the case. Suddenly they find themselves in a full-blown investigation involving bribery, kidnappings, more murders…and his best friend. 

With plenty of plot twists, red herrings, and dry wit, The Morgue and Me is a page-turning modern take on the classic detective genre perfect for fans of Veronica Mars and Shelter.

 

“A dark and stellar debut.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

 

“Fast-paced and full of red herrings, itll keep you guessing.” —New York Post
