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.

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.
Yes. I learned a bit about Germany.
Hard to pick, the 2 main ones
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.
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.
RETIRED & LOVING IT.
LAUGH YOU WILL.
ON YOUR WAY OUT, TAKE OUT THE TRASH.
GREAT EXPRESSIONIST, KEEPS THE STORY PLAUSIBLE AND VERY FUNNY.
THE AUTHOR'S GREAT COMEDIC TALENT WHILE WRITING A VERY GOOD MYSTERY.
PLEASE USE A CREDIT AND BECOME ADDICTED TO THIS AUTHOR.
I enjoyed the book and would check out any others by this author. I also believe that the narrator did well
yes, both were excellent, story moved along nicely.
yes, hopefully will be more with these two charactors.
i liked everything about it
Unfortunately I have the other two books in this series and the first book ends on a cliffhanger so you almost have to listen to at least the beginning of the next one to see how it plays out.
I was expecting more of a forensic-type book since you have a coroner as one of the main characters but all he did was go around and ask people questions and a too chatty ghost that could get on anyone's nerves. The book was set in Germany but it sounded more like New York or New Jersey.
La Quinta, ca
not sure, it just didn't resonate on any level
have liked him in other narrations, but was indifferent to this narration.
Disappointment that I spent a credit, and was underwhelmed and there was nothing in this story that interested or engaged. if it hadn't been so short, i would not have finished it.
I didn't find any interesting plot progression or character growth in this story. The two main characters are awkward and while that would be alright if it was intended, I find that their actions make me cringe. Not something I'd suggest.
The characters were weak/no plot progression.
No dramatic representation of the work, seems flat.
All of them....
Not really worth it.
Paranormal-urban fantasy book lover!
Nuff said! In the sample bit it did not give any inclination that it old be a crude but wow it was.
"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) :)
