9780147510006: The Morgue and Me

“A throw-back style detective novel that readers of all stripes should pay attention to.” —Los Angeles Times 

Christopher just needed a job to kill time the summer after graduation. He didn’t expect to stumble across a murder cover-up when he was hired as a janitor at the morgue. With the sheriff as his prime suspect, he turns to Tina, a gorgeous newspaper reporter, to help him get to the bottom of the case. Suddenly they find themselves in a full-blown investigation involving bribery, kidnappings, more murders...and his best friend. 

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 perfect for fans of Veronica Mars and Shelter.

 

“A dark and stellar debut.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
 
“Fast-paced and full of red herrings, it’ll keep you guessing.” —New York Post

Edgar Award nominee
Agatha Award nominee
YALSA Best Books for Young Adults nominee

About the Author:

John C. Ford (johncfordbooks.com and @fordjohnc) is the author of The Morgue and Me, a YA take on the classic detective novel that was nominated for an Edgar Award and short-listed for five different state teen book awards.  A former litigator who practiced in the nation's capital, he eventually returned to his love of writing fiction, and to his hometown outside Detroit, Michigan.

From Booklist:

Senior year is history and college is still a few months off. What better way to kill the summer than by working as a janitor in a morgue? True, it’s Christopher’s interest in being a spy that draws him to the job, but it’s his first encounter with a corpse that really snares his attention. Mitch Blaylock is the dead man’s name, and he’s listed as a suicide. Those multiple bullet wounds, however, don’t look self-inflicted. What was the sheriff doing whispering over the body? And what gives with all that cash hidden in the medical examiner’s desk? The questions, suspects, and dangers keep accumulating, and soon Christopher pairs up with an “insanely hot” wannabe muckraker from the local newspaper. Too much serendipity plays into the hands of this crime-fighting duo (and not enough is made of the character traits that would drive someone to work at a morgue), but Ford’s unpredictable curveballs and switcheroos never relent. A satisfyingly grim departure from the usual squeaky-clean teen sleuthing. Grades 9-12. --Daniel Kraus
