Publisher's Summary

My career in the death care profession spanned a decade but encompassed the industry from several perspectives. What tied all these together was my role as a driver for the dead.
Sometimes I was a funeral driver, other times I picked up from morgues, and in another capacity I picked up the deceased from the scenes of car accidents, shootings, hit and runs, and worse. Finally, I cleaned up after homicides, accidents, and suicides as a side business.
I could have organized it in a logical, linear fashion, but that's not how I remember it. My experiences varied widely and the pacing of the job was frenetic, fascinating, heartbreaking, and strangely edifying. Like death itself, it was always unpredictable.

Makes you think about things you want to avoid.

If you could sum up Death's Driver in three words, what would they be?

Gross, interesting, engaging.

What other book might you compare Death's Driver to and why?

Stiff by Mary Roach. They both tackle the body after death, but from different perspectives.

Any additional comments?

This really isn't for faint of heart people. It is gory, funny, sad and overall extremely interesting. I love glimpses into others lives that make you appreciate the world around you more and this book certainly does. Everybody dies and we are blessed to have people that take care of tragic situations as well as day to day unpleasantness for us.
I received this book free for review from the Author or Narrator through audiobook blast. I really enjoyed the book and the reading.

Creepy yet enthralling

This is not a book for someone who has lost a child, a loved one or anyone recently. It will creep you out yet suck you in. The authors vignettes are quick and to the point and by the time the shock of the imagery of what you heard huts you he is already onto the next scenario. LOVED IT!!!!!

Not for the feint of heart

What did you like most about Death's Driver?

As a Forensic Science student I found this a very interesting book and a good supplement to my lectures!

This is a job many people don't think about, gives an interesting insight! I found it very informative.

The author goes into detail of crime scenes, so I would say not suitable for younger readers and think twice if your an adult that doesn't like blood and gore.

What about J. Scott Bennett’s performance did you like?

The narrator did a good job with a tricky subject.
