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 amazing....it's hard to think that anyone who enjoys a good mystery wouldn't like this one." (Audiobookstoday.com)
"[A] gorgeous look at the late 1940s....fine listening for Macdonald fans." (AudioFile)

Classic crime noir

No one's better than Ross MacDonald, his stories are tight, the characters are excellent studies, the plot doesn't stop til the last sentence, the writing is as good as it gets ("In this room I felt the heart of the evil...").

I wondered if he would hold up after all this time (they are set in mid 50's) after recently being disapointed in a John D MacDonald story I bought on audible but Ross holds up great. I listened to it in one sitting, the narrator is also well suited for the material.
