Morgue Drawer Four: Morgue Drawer, Book 1 | [Jutta Profijt]

Morgue Drawer Four: Morgue Drawer, Book 1

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "More New York than Germany"
    Would you try another book from Jutta Profijt and/or MacLeod Andrews?

    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.


    What could Jutta Profijt have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    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.

    "utterly unengaging"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    not sure, it just didn't resonate on any level


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jutta Profijt again?

    probably not


    Did MacLeod Andrews do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    have liked him in other narrations, but was indifferent to this narration.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    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.

    "Enjoyable Listen"

    I have enjoyed all four books in this series so far and look for new ones as they are released. I have a very catholic taste in books and will read almost any genre. Take a chance on this series and try to read it in published order. It will give the story more sense.

    "A tale narrated by a ghost..."

    This was a different approach. Liked it, didn't love it. I might try another by this author.

    Story
    "Can't wait for the next one in the series"
    Where does Morgue Drawer Four rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This set of books are my favorite books I have purchased so far


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Morgue Drawer Four?

    At the very beginning. This book just grabs you from the beginning and you cannot "put it down"


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

    No I have not but he does an excellent job. Excellent is not high enough praise. He makes the book come alive. He has an interesting accent and and just the right voice. I can imagine the character quite well listening to him.


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

    Yes, I would have liked to but usually do not have the time. It was very hard to turn it off when I needed to do something.


    Any additional comments?

    It is such a delightful and interesting book that has me squirming to know if there will be another in the series. I truly hope there will be as I will buy it immediately.

    "Not the best, and not the worst"

    I picked up this book because I was looking for another series to start. I'm sure I wouldn't be reading the next one.

    This novel was just mediocre for me. There was nothing special about the plot, and the summary tells you all you need to know about the book - guy dies and he can only talk to one person - he wants to find out who killed him.

    Although I like MacLeod Andrews as a reader, I couldn't stand the sound of his voice in this reading. The accent, the emphasis, everything just drove me up the wall. I prefered him much more in Brandon Sanderson's Steelheart (there, the cadence of his voice was much more appropriate and added to the story as well as the character).

    This is a novel to pass the time. Nothing ground breaking here.

    "No sense...."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    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.


    What was most disappointing about Jutta Profijt’s story?

    The characters were weak/no plot progression.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    No dramatic representation of the work, seems flat.


    What character would you cut from Morgue Drawer Four?

    All of them....


    Any additional comments?

    Not really worth it.
