From the highly praised author of The Hearse You Came In On and Hearse of a Different Color comes the third Hearse mystery featuring that drop-dead gorgeous undertaker-sleuth, Hitchcock Sewell.
Cockey’s new mystery finds Hitch up to his ears in murders, and the latest clues point to a Baltimore nightclub. Following his nose, Hitch uncovers a host of nefarious goings-on as well as some downright strange characters, including a felonious artist, a Miles Davis wanna-be, an Ida Lupino look-alike, and one very irritated dance instructor. Put them all together, throw in a bag full of cash and an incriminating Polaroid, and you have another surefire, humor-laced hit from one of the freshest voices writing in the mystery world today.

“Just as fresh and fun as its predecessors . . . smart-mouthed hero, vivid, fully developed supporting cast.” —Booklist
