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
    "Unique, clever & delightful"

    Much respect for the narrator who brought very clever dialogue to life. The ghost idea has been done before, of course. What made this so clever was the first person account by the ghost and his personal growth, after death, from his strained friendship with the pathologist. This growth was demonstrate with language and linguistic choices. Excellent writing brought to life by the narrator.

    "Kept my attention to the end"

    This was a nice change of pace for me. And the translation was great. I am so glad I have it a chance.
    However, I hated the cliffhanger ending! That was annoying. But I will definitely be getting the next book in the series

    Story
    "A surprise enjoyment."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Morgue Drawer Four to be better than the print version?

    I never read the hard copy, but I found myself enjoying the audio version.


    What other book might you compare Morgue Drawer Four to and why?

    Any of the MC Beaton novels.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Didn't really have just one favorite.


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

    Not really, it was more of "what's going to happen next?"


    Any additional comments?

    This came up in one of those cheap promotions and I thought what the heck, $4.99. I had no idea who the author was or anything about the book but I soon discovered both.

    "What a great listen!"
    Would you listen to Morgue Drawer Four again? Why?

    Interesting characters, unique plot line and dark humor. The narration was just perfect. More than once I stopped what I was doing and chuckled out loud. I will be getting every book in this series.


    What other book might you compare Morgue Drawer Four to and why?

    Odd Thomas would be a comparison.


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

    No, but I will be looking for them. great narration

    Story
    "Delightful, entertaining and captivating"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Morgue Drawer Four to be better than the print version?

    I have not yet read the print version of this book. I can say with complete assurance that the reader of this book hooked me with his engaging voice and endearing attitude. I love the Pascha character most along with the others. The story line is intriguing and the forensics touch is captivating. I have three of them so far, and hope to have more as soon as they are available.


    What other book might you compare Morgue Drawer Four to and why?

    I can't say I've read another book like it. I do think of the old detective mysteries when I listen to this one.


    Which character – as performed by MacLeod Andrews – was your favorite?

    I am convinced that MacLeod Andrews could make any character a favorite. However, Pascha has got to be my number one favorite.


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

    Not only did I want to listen to this one in one sitting, and I very nearly did, but I also would like a marathon of these books in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly entertaining and fun audio with mystery and intrigue splashed in.

    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.
