Publisher's Summary

Pete Talbott is a California native and harried Boston computer wonk still grieving over the death of his wife Terri, when he finds himself at the wrong end of Gino Parini's .45 reading his own obituary torn from that morning's newspaper. Talbott figures it is all a big mistake until Parini shows him his wife's obituary too. That is a mystery Talbott cannot leave alone.

From a funeral home in Indiana, to car chases on the Dan Ryan, a bloody Back Bay townhouse, snipers in New York City's Washington Square, The Undertaker is a fast-paced mystery filled sleazy lawyers, corrupt County sheriffs, mafia hit men, the FBI, an army of Chicago cops, and an unforgettable scene in the upper berth of an Amtrak train. Snarky, funny, and terror-filled, The Undertaker is an action-packed thrill ride with a touch of humor and romance. Someone with a penchant for sharp scalpels and embalming tables is planting bodies under other people's names. If Pete Talbott doesn't stop them, he and his quirky new girlfriend, Sandy Kasmarek, will be next on the Undertaker's list.

    "Suspense and romance"
    Where does The Undertaker rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've read (or listened to) several of Mr. Browns books (I listened to the audiobook of this one), and enjoyed them all. For some reason, this one didn't hold my attention like the others did, but it's a good suspense novel that almost becomes a romance novel before it's over. Without going into the details of the plot (several other reviewers have), I found that I had to 'suspend belief' on several of the adventures...kind of like you have to do in many adventure movies. The fairy tale ending made me chuckle with pleasure, since many of the books I read don't give me that kind of ending. .


    Would you be willing to try another book from William F. Brown? Why or why not?

    Even though I've like some of his other books better, I'd recommend this one and look forward to more of his writings


    Have you listened to any of Eddie Frierson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't recall listening to him before, but I enjoyed his performance. He had a variety of voices for the characters and was easy to listen to.

    Any additional comments?

    or a hard copy just to savor this delightful adventure at your own pace. Combined with the fantastic narration by Eddie Frierson, Bill's story comes across with the accomplished skill we've come to expect from the likes of Tom Clancy, Janet Evanovich and John Sanford. The 'Undertaker' needs no sequels, is filled with action, mystery and is funny as hell to boot. This book needs to be a movie, it's that good.
