Publisher's summary

Meet Me at the Morgue is the story of a kidnapping that led to four murders. In his search for the killer, Howard Cross digs deep into the Los Angeles underworld, finding along the way a beautiful, lost adolescent mourning a dead lover, a suitcase hidden under an aging sadist's bed, and a slovenly gentleman with an ice pick in his neck. Ross Macdonald has never written a story quite like this, and neither has anyone else.

Critic reviews

"One of the fastest moving, snappiest five-and-a-half hours you will ever spend trying to figure out who dun' it....This is a terrific listen....Gardener's work here is's hard to think that anyone who enjoys a good mystery wouldn't like this one." (
"[A] gorgeous look at the late 1940s....fine listening for Macdonald fans." (AudioFile)
