    1. This was a fab one to read Much mellower than the first in the series I loved that one too Maddy Sprowls cracks me up She s in her 60s, does not take any crappe, especially at the newspaper where she runs the morgue or the place where past copies or articles are maintained She She runs into a murder that affects her past and present and she knows the cops are going to do little to investigate what she thinks needs investigating I like watching her mind work She s smart and can see things in a wa [...]

    3. I was drawn to this book because it was about a former member of a Beat Generation group that was trying to link two murders that occured fifty years apart.First of all, although the author knew a lot of Beat Generation history, it was presented with an irreverence, in my opinion, as a passing fad, like the hula hoop, rounding off the edges of an important literary movement, missing the spirit of the whole post World War II scene.Then, I could not relate to the female senior citizen would be det [...]

    4. Another dud Which is really unfortunate, because I liked the first book in this series enough to buy the sequel in the first place Partly my problem was the mystery itself it was boring The ending was, again, one of those cliche things that annoy me And without a character like Aubrey the sparky cub reporter from the first book to uh spark things up, it was a very slow paced and again boring story Oh well This mini review was originally posted here.

    5. Maddy isin charge of the archives the morgue for the local newspaper When Maddy s college colleague, Gordon Sweet, is found murdered at a disused landfill, she can t help but follow up on her curiosity and concern With a pugnacity that gets on many people s nerves, Maddy finds connections and motives she wished could have been different.Maddy and the other characters are consistent and well developed A few characteristics are a bit overdone air pawing, specifically , but that s a tiny glitch in [...]

    6. Newspaper librarian, referred to as Morgue Mama because she works in the paper s morgue is 60ish and investigating the murder of an old friend, shot dead at a landfill at which he was involved in an archaeological dig Morgue Mama gets in the way of the police, with friends remembers the beat generation and Kerouac s one day visit to the town, and generally solves the mystery I would refer to the book as a day tripper Fast moving, lightweight, and fun to read

    7. Decently done who done it about a 60ish newspaper librarian whose job in the morgue of dead clippings is the source of her nickname who pokes around in her old friend s murder and helps the police uncover the real killer.

    8. this is the second book with the morgue mama character, but the first one i read i like her a lot and this book emphasized her college years old gang than the newsroom connection.

    10. Very fun, even though it s about murder A 68 year old protagonistwho was a beatnik and has a great sense of justice
