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.

Listener Opinions

    " Dated and slow, but it gets better if you have the patience to follow it through. McDonald is not writing with Lew Archer as his protagonist here. You wonder how much you can trust his perspective. But the action heats up as it goes on, and the ending is more satisfying than expected. "

    " Kidnapping and murder come into play in this Ross Macdonald mystery. Instead of Lew Archer as the protagonist, there is a probation officer. "

    " Nothing exciting. MacDonald does better with Lew Archer novels. This was a recorded book not a book. "

    " Another Macdonald mystery with a new hero: Howard Cross, not as good as Archer, but still decent "
