Coroner is the perfect job for Dr. Martin Gnsewein, who spends his days in peace and quiet autopsying dead bodies for the city of Cologne. Shy, but scrupulous, Martin appreciates his taciturn clientsuntil the day one of them 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 Martins morgue. He remains for one reason: his accidental death was, in fact, murder. Pascha is furious his case will go unsolvedto say nothing of his bodys dissection upon Martins autopsy table. But since Martin is the only person Pascha can communicate with, the ghost settles in with the good pathologist, determined to bring the truth of his death to light. Now Martins staid life is rudely upended as he finds himself navigating Colognes red-light district and the dark world of German car smuggling. Unless Pascha can come up with a planand fastMartin will soon be joining him in the spirit world. Witty and unexpected, Morgue Drawer Four introduces a memorable (and reluctant) detective unlike any other in fiction today. Morgue Drawer Four was shortlisted for Germanys 2010 Friedrich Glauser Prize for best crime novel.
