    Story

    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.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes. I learned a bit about Germany.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hard to pick, the 2 main ones


    What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

    Love how each character's voice was different enough to determine which was speaking. I take it when all male/female voices sound the same. It makes it hard to follow.


    Was Morgue Drawer Four worth the listening time?

    Yes. It took a little getting used to. I almost paused it for another day, but I stuck with it, and it really gripped me in the middle.

    It was an even pace until the end, and then I was on the edge.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

How will he trace the fate of the girl, known only as Mary, in a population of more than one billion? Who is taking pot shots at him and his prize chilli plants?

    What did you love best about The Case of the Missing Servant?

    the characters!!! They're painted so vivid and given such distinct personalities, it was easy to follow and enjoy.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love the main character. I like how he nicknames all his operatives. He gives the impression that he's not too smart, but he sneaks up on them with all of the answers.


    What does Sam Dastor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It's difficult to get all the different accents and voices in your head when you read. I like how they didn't all sound the same.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    it made me laugh off and on.


    Any additional comments?

    loved it
