He's a part time funeral director and part time deputy, husband, son, nephew, staunch friend. And he's got a whole lot of firecrackers to juggle. There's the murders, the uncle with a severe concussion sustained while saving a life at the parade, the good friend who gets people in trouble with his inability to keep his mouth shut, the mob, several federal agencies, and then there's the family funeral home. The publisher's blurb gives some more hints, but it's the compelling nature of the characters, the writing, and the suspense that keeps you reading too late. And the plot twists complete with red herrings! Excellent read!
