Item description for The Reluctant Corpse by Mary Charles...


"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 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Reluctant Corpse?

Chillingly sublime  Jun 24, 2004
The authors have a hit with this one!! Their second novel to date will generate chills as the reader explores the inner psyche of Stewart Douglas, who puts "creepy" on the map in Savanah. I will eargerly await the arrival of the third novel.
Even better than the first book!  May 18, 2004
In The Reluctant Corpse, Mary Charles treats us to a delightfully quirky group of characters who, despite their eccentricities, you're sure you've met somewhere before (well, maybe not Stewart Douglas, shudder...). The action picks up shortly after Casey's Revenge leaves off and her intrepid heroine Casey is involved in a new adventure, although this time not quite as centrally and with quite a few friends to help her out. With the addition of more characters to spice up the action, Charles has also broadened her usual Savannah setting to include nearby Statesboro, both painted colorfully and realistically. Although not strictly a "who dunnit" there are enough plot twists and puzzles to keep you guessing until the very end with what is fast becoming her trademark creepy finale to leave you wanting more...
