With old friends like these, who needs enemies? It's a question short, mild mannered detective Edward Newson is forced to ask himself having in romantic desperation logged on to the Friends Reunited Web site searching for the girlfriends of his youth. Newson is not the only member of the Class of '86 who has been raking over the ashes of the past. As his old class begins to reassemble in cyberspace, the years slip away and old feuds and passions burn hot once more. Meanwhile, back in the present, Newson's life is no less complicated. He is secretly in love with Natasha, his lovely but very attached sergeant, while comprehensively failing to solve a series of baffling and peculiarly gruesome murders. A school reunion is planned and as history begins to repeat itself, the past crashes headlong into the present. Neither will ever be the same again. In Past Mortem, Ben Elton, previous winner of The Crime Writers' Association Gold Dagger Award for Popcorn, delivers both a heart-stopping thriller and a killer comic romance.

    " An enjoyable read, if not very disturbing in a mildly confronting way. "

    " Amazingly gripping plot, the mystery, the poignancy, the characters, the deaths! I found myself racing thru the last few chapters to finally catch the killer and altho it made sense i was jus a lil disappointed. However that shant cloud my view of the book as a whole .. for my first Ben Elton book, it has left me well and truly converted! Bring on the next one ... "

    " This is an excellent serial killer thriller from Ben Elton. Not at all what I was expecting from him having read many of his other works but an absolute stunner. The mystery unfolds slowly, the serial killer is incredibly inventive and Elton's Detective is totally believable. My only criticism is the very, very hard core sex scene in the novel. It was not only way too explicit but felt gratuitous to me and I think that detracted from the novel overall. Still a highly recommended read but definitely NOT for children. "

    " Enjoyed the modern touch of using an old school reunion website. Great easy read with a lot of laugh out loud moments. "
