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.

    "Deeply strange. very enjoyable"

    We found this book to be quirky, adorable and quite enjoyable. I think it's worth your time, though expect a very idiosyncratic little story.

    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "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

    "Stick with it, it's great!"
    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.

    "A tale narrated by a ghost..."

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

    "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.

    "excellent but be aware this continues in book 2"

    I would have gotten book two in this series anyway because I really like the story, the writing and I think MacLeod Andrews is one of the best narrators around, but I do not like the fact that it ends like the Perils of Pauline, with her tied to the railroad tracks and you have to wait until the next episode to see if the train runs over her. Well, you know it didn't but still... I don't like all the loose ends hanging that demand you get the next book.

    Still an excellent story - define 5 stars all around.

    "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.

    "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) :)
