This first book in the series gives us a new and interesting character. I can't say that I've read a lot about morticians, especially funny ones. Hitch Sewell is a funny guy, with lots of snide and wry observations. The story is an enjoyable read.

I read this one and the next, but after two books, I was finding that I really didn't like Hitch very much. He has very loose morals; I found his way of thinking not aligned with mine. It was uncomfortable to go around with a guy who is not faithful to his woman (girlfriend in this case) and doesn't feel conflicted by that.

So read the first one, enjoy the funny situations, and try not to identify with Hitch too much.

I do love Cockey's tales of "Hitch," the tall good-looking Baltimore mortician, his daffy ex-wife, Julia, and his aunt Billie, partner in the funeral home. In this first of the series, Hitch meets Kate. And the bodies pile up. A very funny series.

A very entertaining undertaker combined with a good mystery makes good reading

Fun, but not overwhelmingly clever. I liked this book's refreshing approach, not all the same old stuff. My book club hated it, though.

Don't let Cockey's wry dialog and observations fool you, this is a nitty gritty murder story with plenty of curves and turns to keep you reading until the end.

The first in the Hitchcock Sewell series.

Enjoyable wisecracks and puns, fired off good-naturedly, characterize our hearse-equipped hero Hitchcock Sewell. At first I thought there might be too many jokes per square inch, but I adjusted!

This was an enjoyable read...fast paced, funny and I didn't want to put it down.

This is one of the funniest books I've ever read. The premise itself is odd in that an undertaker is an amateur sleuth, but the dialogue is laugh out loud funny. If you like Who-Dun-Its with a bit of humor this book is a sure bet.

When a beautiful woman shows up at a funeral home wearing a tennis dress, that's cause for suspicion. When that same woman wants to talk about her own funeral arrangements, well...what self-respecting mortician could resist?
