Meticulous coroner Dr Martin Gansewein leads a quiet life. That is, until the day the spirit of Pascha, a small-time criminal who dealt in stolen cars and whose body is now lying on the slab in front of him, insists on striking up a conversation. Pascha is in one hell of a bad mood – his supposedly accidental death was in fact murder.
Martin is the only one he can communicate with, and he needs his help if the truth is to come to light. The restless Pascha’s spirit takes possession of the pathologist’s body and the action begins. Before Martin knows what’s hit him, he finds himself having to negotiate the red light district, and becomes embroiled in the world of Cologne car thieves. Not only is his life turned upside down, but it’s in serious danger of a violent end. Now it’s up to Pascha to come up with a plan, and quickly, if he wants to save his new friend….
A not-quite-dead petty thief and a fastidious coroner join forces to track down a murderer – this is a book that will have you shaking with laughter and quaking with fear!
