Thomas wants to be anything but a mortician's apprentice. It's his family's business, though, so there's not much choice.
Fitzroy Books and Edelweiss let me read this book for review (thank you). It will be published on March 21st.
When they find a body on the doorstop., his father takes it in for preparing. But Thomas knows it was murder and he and his friend try to solve it.
There are ghosts, wicked men, and danger of drowning. The more Thomas learns, the more dangerous it gets. He's off on an adventure he may not come back from.
It's a very good thing he made another friend on the trip or he might not have made it...
