Publisher's Summary

Shy, but scrupulous, he is happy working as a coroner in the Cologne morgue - until one of his usually taciturn “clients” starts talking to him. It seems the ghost of a recently deceased (and surprisingly chatty) small-time car thief named Pascha is lingering near his lifeless body in drawer number four of Martin’s morgue. He remains for one reason: his accidental death was actually murder. Pascha isn’t too keen on the good doctor, considering the tidy manner in which his body was dissected upon the autopsy table. But Martin is the only person Pascha can communicate with, and the only person who can do the detective work required to smoke out his killer.
Desperate to reclaim his quiet life, Martin grudgingly agrees to help the ghost, setting off on a wild adventure through the city’s red-light district and the dark world of German car smuggling. Witty and unexpected, Morgue Drawer Four introduces a memorable (and reluctant) detective unlike any other in fiction today.

My first read by this author

Any additional comments?

This is the first book in a series. It is a light and amusing mystery. I have listened to all three in the series. I hope there will be more to follow.

Deeply strange. very enjoyable

We found this book to be quirky, adorable and quite enjoyable. I think it's worth your time, though expect a very idiosyncratic little story.

Morgue Drawer Four

A refreshingly different and original detective story, amusing and entertaining and, as always, narrated masterfully by MacLeod Andrews. Looking forward to listening to the sequel(s) :)

What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

Andrews' ability to capture different personalities in his voice was amazing. His comedic delivery was perfect. He brought the book to life for me.

Any additional comments?

I have to say that this was not the kind of book I would normally read/listen to. First it was a translation, which often means the essence of a book changes. Second it was about a petty criminal in Germany- nothing to relate to there for me. And lastly, it didn't have any romance. What it did have though, I discovered after listening to a sample, was a wicked sense of humour. So I got the book and the rest of the series. And I was not sorry. This is seriously a fun, interesting and fast-moving series with a lovable hero whose insights into the world had me in tears more often than not. I LOVED this series and I recommend it to anyone with a funny bone.
