Or that his discovery would lead him to a full-blown investigation involving bribery, kidnappings, more murders . . . and his best friend.

And Christopher?s life will never be the same.
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.
