Baltimore's sexiest undertaker, Hitchcock Sewell, is once again cruising for trouble.
A childhood friend has been charged with the murder of a local nightclub owner, but Hitch, in his heart, knows she didn't do it. Problem is, the friend has gone into hiding--and she's taken his ever-vivacious ex-wife, Julia, with her. Hitch's search for his friends and for the real killer takes him from smoky jazz joints, to the world of illegal sports gambling, to the beach (in his hearse, natch)--and, as usual, to a few too many of Baltimore's colorful bars and saloons. The Hearse Case Scenario is another humor-laden hit from one of the freshest voices writing in the mystery world today.
