Publisher's Summary

As crime-fighting teams go, Dr. Martin Gänsewein and Pascha are an unlikely pair. Martin is a shy, scrupulous forensic pathologist who spends his days autopsying dead bodies, while Pascha is the gregarious ghost of a former car thief whose murder Martin reluctantly helped solve. After narrowly surviving that adventure, Martin wants nothing more than a little peace and quiet.
Unfortunately, the good doctor is out of luck thanks to the arrival of Marlene, the spirit of a nun killed in a fire that ravaged her medieval convent and home. Though disappointed that his new sidekick isn’t a leggy blonde, Pascha empathizes with Marlene - and suspects that the deadly fire was no accident. The ghosts are determined to uncover the truth, but they can’t do it without Martin’s help.
Together with Martin’s girlfriend Birgit, the trio embarks upon a madcap (and frequently hilarious) adventure that will enchant listeners from beginning to end.

Finally wore me down

While the performance and world building are good, the exuberant sexism finally wore me down. When our protagonist, the ghost of a car thief, asserts that prostitution will always be *necessary* "as long as women withhold sex" and the ghost of a nun who ran a shelter for battered sex-workers for 30 years, agrees with his analysis of *the* cause of prostitution, I ground my teeth, sighed and deleted the book.

It's one thing for our ignorant, young former car thief to hold, well, ignorant opinions. And he does. Hold many. However, often those same opinions are challenged by the behaviors or conversations of characters whom we respect and our young car thief thinks again. The crude sexist opinions he spouts about women, relationships with women, what women are good for, etc. seem to be impervious to other information. The lecture about prostitution was simply the last straw.

All around Great!

Another great mystery and no Pascha has a partner. So many parts where I'm laughing out loud. I'm outside in my gardens digging out weeds and laughing my a## off! Can't wait for the next book. Never thought I would like it so much, sorry I waited so long to start this series of books. Now onto book 3.
