Marius dos Hellespont and his apprentice, Gerd, are professional looters of battlefields. When they stumble upon the corpse of the King of Scorby and Gerd is killed, Marius is mistaken for the monarch by one of the dead soldiers and is transported down to the Kingdom of the Dead. Just like the living citizens, the dead need a king—after all, the king is God’s representative, and someone needs to remind God where they are.

And so it comes to pass that Marius is banished to the surface with one message: if he wants to recover his life he must find the dead a king. Which he fully intends to do … just as soon as he stops running away.

    " Cool! Bought this one based on the title. When I started reading, I wasn't prepared to like Marius. "Oh, great," I thought, "another charming, inveterate rogue." Marius turned out to be a little more interesting than that, and it was a pleasure to follow him on his oddball adventures as he tried to find a King for the Dead. The tongue-in-cheek tone didn't hurt this book a bit. Recommend to lovers of dark humor, as well as those who enjoy stories that stretch the bounds of life and death. "

    " This was fun - different idea - not great but fun to read. "

    " I really tried to like this, as it had an interesting premise, but between the juvenile repartee between Marius and Gerd and the apparent lack of female characters who weren't prostitutes (at least in the first part of the book), I lost interest. "

    " This was fun. Somewhat blackadderish in its humour it started off slowly but had me laughing out loud by the end. "
