       Additional Information  
      "In Corwin's witty and engaging caper, the start of a new series, newspaper archivist Dol­Iy Madison Sprowls, called Morgue Mama 'behind her back,' and a determined cub re­porter, Aubrey McGinty, team up to investigate the poisoning of TV evangelist Buddy Wing at the Heaven Bound Cathedral in 'the Hallelujah city' of Hannawa, Ohio.... The irrepressible, 67-year-old Maddy (as she prefers to be called), a lonely divorcée clinging to her post as manager of the Hannawa Herald-Union's morgue, helps Aubrey search the newspa­per's records, which yield a multitude of suspects, some amusing and some tragic, but each adding an intriguing dimension to the ever more complex case. Smalltown politics and office love affairs entangle almost every­one except Maddy, whose existence be­fore now has revolved around filing news ar­ticles in steel cabinets for brash reporters to paw through. Her matchup with Aubrey brings her and the reader genuine excite­ment right through the stunning conclusion to this lively adventure."
