Christopher just needed a job to kill time the summer after high school graduation. He didn't expect it to be in the morgue. Or that he would accidentally discover a murder cover-up. Or that his discovery would lead him to a full-blown investigation involving bribery, kidnappings, more murders . . . and his best friend. And he certainly could never have predicted that Tina?loud, insanely hot, ambitious newspaper reporter Tina?would be his partner. But all of that did happen. And Christopher's life will never be the same.

With plenty of plot twists, red herrings, and dry wit, "The Morgue and Me" is a page-turning modern take on the classic detective genre.
