A novel by

 
The morgue is that cold and sterile facility where medical examiners do their necessary, but to many of us, dreadful work. Less familiar is its dry and dusty version, usually housed in the bowels of newspaper buildings, where old story clippings are filed away. Dolly Madison Sprowls has been in charge of the Nannawa Herald-Union's morgue for more than forty years. She is gruff and salty, well past the age of retirement, the unchallenged queen of her ink-stained domain. Reporters cal her Morgue Mama, but only behind her back. Maddy Sprowls well-ordered world gets turned upside-down when the paper hires 24-year-old Aubrey McGinty for its police beat. Aubrey loses no time in questioning the conviction of Sissy James for the murder of TV evangelist Buddy Wing. Yes,Sissy had quickly confessed to poisoning the famous preacher live on television and the evidence does seem overwhelming, but the ambitious reporter doesn't believe Sissy is guilty. Why, then, her claim?Aubrey enlists Morgue Mama's help and together they begin a harrowing search for the truth. Digging into the morgue's file, they soon, and dangerously uncover enough suspects to fill a church with those who do the devil's work¨ MORGUE MAMA MADE THE BOOKSENSE 76 LIST!!!
