"An appealing series on multiple fronts." -Booklist

"Shows skill at mixing humor with CSI-style crime." -Publishers Weekly

When Deputy Coroner Mattie Winston and her boss/best friend, Izzy, are called to the home of waitress and part-time model Shannon Tolliver, they find the ghoulish Halloween decorations a bit too authentic. Among the fake blood and skeletons is the corpse of Shannon herself. Since the whole town knows Shannon recently had a very public spat with her estranged husband, Erik, he's suspect #1. But Mattie happens to know Erik truly loved his wife, and is simply incapable of the brutal act-even if he owns the exact same caliber handgun as the murder weapon...

Determined to unearth the truth, Mattie puts her scalpel-sharp medical skills to work, and digs a little deeper. What she uncovers is stranger than anyone could have imagined...

Praise for Annelise Ryan and Working Stiff

"Has it all: suspense, laughter, a spicy dash of romance..." -Tess Gerritsen

"Sassy, sexy, and suspenseful...wry and original." -Carolyn Hart

"Make way for Mattie Winston, the funniest deputy coroner to cut up a corpse since, well, ever." -Laura Levine
