Book Description

Macavity Award-winning author Penny Warner knows there's no rest for the dead....

Life is never dull in the California Gold Country town of Flat Skunk. But deaf journalist Connor Westphal is shocked all the same when she learns that boxes of human ashes have been found stashed in a nearby self-storage facility. The space is leased to one Jasper Coyne, a bourbon-happy fisherman hired by the Memory Kingdom Memorial Park to scatter the ashes at sea.

Connor thinks the scandal will make great copy for her paper, the Eureka!--until Jasper is murdered and suspicion falls on Connor's own best friend, Memory Kingdom owner Del Rey Montez. Connor is sure Del Rey is innocent. To prove it, Connor must navigate mortician politics and skinhead teens to untangle the secrets of Del Rey's past. But when she gets too close to the truth, she makes an enemy who's determined to make sure the intrepid reporter bites the dust along with her biggest scoop of the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't keep quiet about this one! March 12 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Connor Westphal, owner of the local newspaper, the Eureka!, is always looking for a good story. When an incredible tale of unscattered human ashes falls into her lap, she knows it'll make great copy - that is until she finds out that the perpetrator, Jasper Coyne, was once married to her best friend, and Memory Kingdom owner, Del Rey Montez and that some of those cremains were processed by Del Rey's own funeral home. When Coyne turns up murdered, Connor begins to investigate, uncovering far too many secrets, lies and tangled relationships that could end in her own death.
Once again, Penny Warner pens an excellent tale with sidebars of lighthearted humor & eccentricities. Her complex characters, especially the deaf Connor, showcase all sides of the human condition and wrap the reader up in a tangled tale of intrigue and suspense. This is Warner's fourth book in the series and she is only getting better! A QUIET UNDERTAKING is a must read for fans of the amateur sleuth - and for those that like their murders a little more hard-boiled.
