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. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 ★Rachael ★ | 2/12/2014

    " This was really good and funny! Killer cliffhanger so ill be on to book 2 soon! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary | 2/8/2014

    " This book started with such promise and with an odd, but engaging main character. Then it quickly became a slow moving grind to the conclusion. I finished it, which means I must have appreciated it to some extent, but It's not going on to my recommended reading list. Great start......lost steam and character development. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 2/5/2014

    " You know a book will be a little different when the narrator is dead but it really worked in this case. The relationship that developed between the medical examiner and the spirit of a recently deceased person was fun to follow. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe Faust | 1/8/2014

    " Amusing procedural in which the narrator is a dead guy. Predictable in places, but a great ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 CatBookMom | 1/4/2014

    " I idly started reading the first few pages and now, a few hours later, I've finished the book; I just kept reading to find out what happened next. It isn't great, but it's pretty decent, and Martin is an especially nice character. Apparently this was nominated for a German mystery award, too. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Natalie | 1/2/2014

    " I really liked the book except for the end. There wast one. I actually thought there was a problem with my kindle since it felt like the book ended in mid thought. If it had a real honest to goodness ending, I would have given it four stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura M | 12/25/2013

    " Translated from German. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rick | 12/18/2013

    " The first few chapters were quite promising. Interesting subject matter and quite a good style of writing. However the whole thing quickly lost it's way. I finished the book but was disappointed with the end result. I wont be buying the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Knowler | 12/18/2013

    " I thought this was fun, but not as 'different' as I had expected from a European thriller. I liked that the person affected by the psychic phenomenon did what we would all do - reacted badly. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Janet C. | 11/5/2013

    " I thought the story was funny and had some good twists. I have a hard time believing that references to sexual activity have to be included when they have nothing to do with the storyline or the outcome. I thought Pascha was a pervert and a pig. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vickie | 10/22/2013

    " It was o.k...not what I expected. It ended in a weird place. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Simon | 10/16/2013

    " 's ok, but nothing brilliant "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carrie Smith | 5/25/2013

    " Comparable to a grade 10 English Creative Lit Assignment. Poorly written then goes downhill. By the end you just don't really care. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 eileen griffin | 4/29/2013

    " this is quite an interesting book in that it appears to be a mystery, but is also quite funny. you do want to continue with the tale which becomes more involved and definitely holds your interest. I highly recommend it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kerstin Severien | 1/14/2013

    " Interesting book, ghost with a twist? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheekey | 12/22/2012

    " Got for free on Amazon Prime rental. Quick read, enjoyable mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna Weber | 10/26/2012

    " A rather off the wall, twisting story in which the reader must stay fully engrossed. Readers... set aside a block of time to really stay "with" this book; the author works diligently at making you a partner in the storyline! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Samantha Richardson | 10/19/2012

    " The plot was pretty slow moving for me and was glad when I finished it to be honest "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa | 7/31/2012

    " Strange book, but I enjoyed it. I would definately read the next in the series. "
