Book Description

19 Mar 2013

Losing her posh advertising job, her boyfriend, and her apartment all in the same morning has left Corinna Leyendecker with a massive mess where her life should be. She tries to get things back on track, but with a mountain of red tape between her and unemployment assistance and a string of disastrous job interviews under her belt, it’s clear that following the rules is getting her nowhere. So she decides to start doing things her way…

With the help of a quirky friend—and some unconventional branding—Corinna launches her own business: an elite cleaning service for wealthy men. And business is booming…until the day she finds a dead homeless man in the house of a fussy new client. As usual, Corinna’s instinct is to clean up, but body disposal isn’t easy, especially when you’re juggling work, friendships, media attention, and a nasty flu. It’s going to take more than a little elbow grease to finish this dirty job and come out clean.

Fantastic book! Right up there with Morgue Draw 4.

Felt Profijt had given up slightly with Morgue Draw for Rent but with Dust Angel, BOOM - right back up there!

Brilliant :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Light Caper That's Girlish Fun 19 Mar 2013
By Stephanie De Pue TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
"Dust Angel" reaches us as the fourth novel from German author Jutta Profijt, following on the heel of her three "Morgue," mysteries,Morgue Drawer Four, Morgue Drawer Next Door, and Morgue Drawer for Rent. Her first book featuring coroner Martin Gansewein, MORGUE DRAWER NUMBER FOUR, was shortlisted for the German 2010 Friedrich Glauser Prize for best crime novel, and praised by "Mystery Scene Magazine" as "not only funny, but...insightful.". I've previously read and reviewed MORGUE DRAWER NEXT DOOR in these pages, wasn't crazy about it: it got old fast.

DUST ANGEL is a standalone, a light comic caper, featuring protagonist/narrator Corinna Leyendecker, set in Dusseldorf, Germany,a city by which it does a good job. Corinna has had the unenviable experience of losing her job in advertising, her boyfriend, and her apartment all the same morning. She does her best to cope with the red tape associated with unemployment insurance, does a couple of pointless job interviews, and decides to start her own business, Dust Angels, a cleaning, concierge, and catering service for wealthy men without wives. The business is doing well, until Corinna finds the body of a dead homeless man in the walk-in cooler of a fussy new client. She's got a bad case of flu, but she must somehow cope.

Profijt was born in 1967 in Ratingen, Germany. After finishing school, she lived abroad working as an au pair, an importer/exporter, a coach to executives and students, and a business English instructor. She currently works as a freelance writer and translator.

The book started slowly which after Morgue Drawer 4 was a little disappointing. However, once the pace increased, I enjoyed it although the story around the body in the boot fell a bit flat. Probably best as a holiday read or on a train journey to work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable 2 April 2014
By Becc
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Enjoyable light reading. The story was not at all what I was expecting. The ending definitely was not as expected but actually in a good way (trying not to include any spoilers)! Much lighter reading than the Morgue Drawer series the author is known for. Very good for a short quick read!

It was a good story but it fizzled out at the end. I wanted there to be more behind the dead body, whereas it just went a bit flat.

After reading her Morgue Draw books I couldn't wait to give this a try and it was well worth it. I didn't want to put it down.
