�Stewart Douglas could not, under any circumstances, be considered your average human being. He�d always been a fan of agony as long, of course, as it wasn�t his own.� Well, Stewart is the local mortician, and maybe he has a less than healthy interest in the job. Every community has its secrets, and Savannah, Georgia, is no exception. The questions are: exactly what are those secrets, and who do they belong to?
Mary Charles is the nom de plume of Mary Hadley and Charles Martin. British born Hadley is an associate professor of composition and creative writing at Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, Georgia. She has also written a non-fiction work on the evolution of the female sleuth in British fiction. Martin is an art restorer with his own business. Both enjoy traveling, reading mysteries and their three cats. The Reluctant Corpse is the sequel to Casey�s Revenge.
Mary Charles introduces us to a community of characters, and although we do see the mortician at work, everything is comfortably tranquil, or so it seems. But strange things are afoot. Who can you trust? It may be best to let things rest, but events have their own momentum.
There is a foray into the antique art market, which gives the plot a subtle twist, and as the sinister undertone begins to take on real menace, you will be unable to put down this exciting suspense novel.
