My concerns when I read Dark Undertakings was that a series based around an undertaker was going to get a bit predictable and silly. I'm glad to say that this second in the series wasn't predictable or silly. The author has moved Drew Slocombe on and he now owns his own small business - a natural burial ground. I can see more milage in the series from here. Which is good because I like the characters and want to know what happens next. Rebecca Tope has a knack for creating characters who do the kind of things that make you think 'oh that would only work in a book' but who seem very realistic at the same time. Delightful really. I wish these books were easier to get hold of.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0749009705, Paperback)

With Peaceful Repose Cemetery, Drew Slocombe is determined to revolutionize the entire death industry and make cheap, ecologically-sound burials a popular choice. Unfortunately, Drew's gravedigger has just discovered that their cemetery has one too many corpses. The body of an elderly woman has been occupying the field for months before Drew opened for business. The police don't appear to be particularly concerned by the death and seem to think that the body is that of a vagrant. But for Drew things don't add up: even if the woman died a natural death, someone was obviously responsible for burying her.

The mystery deepens when Genevieve Slater turns up at Drew's door. With reasons of her own for not wanting to contact the police, she wants to hire Drew to prove that the body is that of her missing mother. Drew realizes helping her might get him in trouble with the law, but for a man looking to escape both money worries and marriage problems, Genevieve proves impossible to resist.
