A summer job at the morgue?  It's not for everyone, but it's just right for Christopher.  Mystery, intrigue, and some day working as a spy are what fill his thoughts.

When Christopher overhears his boss agreeing that a recent death at a local motel was the result of suicide, he doesn't think too much about it.  That is until he gets a peek at the body.  There are five gunshot wounds in the guy's chest.  That's hardly what most medical examiners would rule a suicide.

There's a mystery to be solved, and Christopher is on the case.  When he tries to take the evidence he's found to the local newspaper, he meets up with a new reporter named Tina.  Not only is she interested in the case, but she's pretty hot, too.  Together they are determined to find out the truth. 

THE MORGUE AND ME is a real whodunit kind of mystery.  The two amateur detectives find themselves wrapped up in a complicated scenario that involves local business people, a couple of lawyers, the sheriff, and more.  Not only are Christopher and Tina in danger, but also Christopher's kid brother.  Can they find the evidence they need to convince the authorities that the would-be suicide victim was actually the victim of murder?

Both teen readers and adults will find this quirky mystery filled with plot twists and turns a satisfying read.
