Publisher's Summary

Amateur sleuth and restless spirit Pascha gets the chance of a post-lifetime when a reporter turns up dead. Detective Gregor Kreidler - a friend of Pascha's crime-fighting partner, coroner Martin Gänsewein - tops the list of suspects for the murder of Susanne Hauschild, who also happens to be Gregor's ex-wife. Martin already has his hands full with his girlfriend - who's ready to give birth any day - and he's too distracted to comb the streets, so Pascha decides to play ghost cop with gusto. He discovers that Susanne had been investigating a cluster of mysterious deaths at a retirement home before her own death. And retracing her steps leads Pascha to a shady nightclub owner with his own reasons for evading the law. With his unique ability to do detective work undetected, can Pascha solve the case?

The Ghost of a Car Thief Turned Detective

Pascha, before he was murdered was a car thief with a fairly narrow range of interests-- women, action films, drinking, and cars. Since he has become a ghost who has not gone into the light, he has added solving crimes to this list. In this entry into the series one of the friends of the only person Pascha can reliably communicate with, Martin the forensic pathologist, is arrested for a crime and doesn't seem to be trying to help himself at all. So Pascha tries to help. Meanwhile Martin is focused more on his partner's developing pregnancy and the prospect of becoming a father, than on helping Pascha detect.

Translated from the German, this series has really captured my interest. It's a bit uneven, but I thought this one was one of the stronger entries. Pascha is at his crude, snarky best and the poor beleaguered Martin has to put up with Pascha and the revolt of his partner again Martin's efforts to wrap her in cotton wool for the duration of her pregnancy.

This is a new narrator but I didn't really notice until I finished listening to the book, which is the best outcome possible when a series has reached its fifth book with the same reader for the first four. I remember how annoyed I was with the change of narrators in the Jasper Fford Thursday Next series and that was only after the first book.
