When a dead body shows up at a coroner’s conference, Rick Levine — a former, fallen-from-grace defense attorney and current private eye — investigates the murder with help from his new girlfriend Laura, making this a date she’ll never forget!
One Reviewer Notes
“I loved The Zen Man and really had fun catching Rick and Laura’s first case in the prequel, The Ungrateful Dead. These novels have everything I love in a mystery: smart dialogue, a flawed hero, a little romance and a great plot. Murder at a coroner’s conference? What could be more fun!” ~ Nancy Warren USA Today Bestselling Author of The Toni Diamond mysteries
From The Author
In 2008, I wrote a mystery short story, The Ungrateful Dead, based on two characters, Rick Levine (a private investigator) and Laura Fitzhugh (his girlfriend), who spend their first romantic weekend together at a coroner’s conference. I can guess what you’re thinking: “Is she kidding? A romantic weekend at a coroner’s conference?” I happen to know this is possible because, as the saying goes, I’ve been there and done that.During the decade that my husband and I ran a private detective agency in Denver, Colorado, we were invited several times by our state coroner association to give presentations at their annual conferences. Both times, the association treated us to a lovely hotel room, paid for our meals, and more. Just like Rick and Laura in The Ungrateful Dead, we made romantic weekends out of hanging out with a lot of coroners.But unlike Rick and Laura, we didn’t end up investigating a murder at the conference!
