"A throw-back style detective novel that readers of all stripes should pay attention to." -- Los Angeles Times Christopher just needed a job to kill time the summer after graduation. He didn't 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, it'll keep you guessing." -- New York Post
