PK Pinkerton is back with a new mystery to solve. Someone has brutally murdered Short Sally. Her slave girl, Martha, the only witness and on the run, begs PK to find the killer. But there are all too many suspects and it isn't just Martha the killer wants out of the way. Life quickly gets dangerous for PK too. He (or she?) is swung at, shot at, nearly kissed, nearly burned alive and he is imprisoned. He climbs over rooftops, disguises himself and interviews all manner of people in order to find Sally's killer.
It was hard to imagine that the Case of the Good-Looking Corpse could be as good as The Deadly Desperados, but it really is. It has the same brilliantly recreated world, the same skilled narration and flawless voice. As well as this, it's a thrilling mystery that keeps you guessing almost until the end. Really, really impressive writing. I highly recommend this to readers young and old. You won't be able to put it down once you've started.
