5.0 out of 5 stars Just gets better, 10 Oct 2012
This review is from: Morgue Drawer for Rent (Morgue Drawer series) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
How many detective novels can you write based around the same morgue without getting boring? Well at least three if this latest outing from Coroner Martin and his ghostly sidekick Pascha are anything to go by. This time bodies are being mutilated during the night or disappearing all together and the forensic medicine department has a new bureaucratic idiot of a boss. Pascha falls in love with a beautiful Russian who unfortunately for him is still alive and Martin's relationship with Birgit stumbles along heading for disaster.
This series always reminds me of 'Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased)' but Pascha is much more fun than the sanctimonious Hopkirk in his white suit and you can feel his frustration at being alone in the world except for his contact with Martin.
A clever little twist in the tale is the way that Pascha has become the author of his own novels and there's a clever little twist in the epilogue on this one.
Overall this is a very entertaining series and yes you can easily figure out the plot as it goes along but that in no way detracts from the enjoyment of the story.
