The Undertaker: Pete and Sandy Murder Mystery 1 (Amongst My Enemies Book 5) (English Edition) Kindle版
Pete Talbott, a harried Boston computer wonk, is still grieving over the death of his wife, when he finds himself at the wrong end of Gino Parini’s .45 reading his own obituary torn from the morning newspaper. Talbott figures it’s all a big mistake, until Parini shows him his wife’s obituary too; and that’s a mystery that Pete Talbott can’t leave well-enough alone.
Sandy Kasmarek is a kick-ass art gallery attendant on Chicago’s stylish North Michigan Avenue, and her late and un-lamented husband is also featured in another of the bogus obituaries.
With a photographer’s sharp eye and the quick feet of a black belt, she and Pete are soon embroiled in government corruption, organized crime, and an FBI undercover shell game.
From a funeral home in Indiana, to car chases on the Dan Ryan Expressway, a bloody townhouse in Boston’s Back Bay, snipers in New York’s Washington Square, the cramped lower bunk on an AMTRAK train, they find themselves knee-deep in sleazy lawyers, corrupt County sheriffs, the FBI, and Mafia hit men. And if Pete and Sandy can’t stop him, they know they will be next on the Undertaker’s list.
Looking for a good beach book or something to curl up with in front of the fire, this fast-moving conspiracy thriller is from the author of Burke’s War, Burke's Gamble, Burke’s Revenge, Burke's Samovar, the new Burke's Mandarin and the forthcoming Burke's Rescue, The Undertaker, Amongst My Enemies, Thursday at Noon, Winner Lose All, and Aim True, My Brothers, as well as the Our Vietnam War series, Volumes 1-4, with interviews and photos from 240 American and allied Veterans.

Ginny Reader, Amazon Reviewer, 5-Stars! "As intense as Stephen King! William Brown has the talent of Stephen King to develop well rounded characters we love and create tense situations that keep you on the edge of your seat. Combine that with a grieving character who is smart and has a sharp wit and you've got someone I'm interested in reading more about.
Sandra J. Trublood, Amazon Reviewer, "Edge of Seat. If you like mysteries that are intelligent, yet scary, this is the book for you. I couldn't put it down.
Passion Reads: "5 Stars! An awesome must read! This one had me jumping in, head-first. From the beginning to the end, I was kidnapped and taken for an exciting and thrilling ride. And to top it all off, it was hilarious."
Book Pleasures: "5 Stars! Great fun! It is a thriller with enough action, intrigue, humor and romance to please the most jaded reader. My recommendation? Buy this book and have some quality entertainment time. You won't regret it."
Karen J. Dahood. Reviewer, 5-Stars! "Unexpected Charms! "Wow! I read the Prologue and decided I wasn't going to like this book. Then I read Chapter One and was hooked. I read Chapters Two and Three. I had to put it down and do other things, but took it up again at bedtime, waking in the morning to find I had left my light on and my Kindle still beside me.
Garys, Amazon Reviewer, 5-Stars! "A heck of a story! I just finished "The Undertaker" by William Brown, and as with any well-written tale, I was sorry to have it come to an end. Dashiell Hammett, one of the truly great American mystery writers, once said that people want to read about people, and Brown follows that dictum to the letter. His characters quickly reveal themselves as individuals you care for and about.--このテキストは、paperback版に関連付けられています。

This is one of the most suspenseful novels I have read in a long time.There were times when it became so gripping I had to put it down and do something else for a short while. I will definitely be seeking out more novels by this author
This is mostly superficial goodie versus baddie chasing but is a fun read and the main character Talbott is likeable, as is Sandy(almost), and nearly believable. I'd very much recommend it if you are making a long trip and need a read that requires little effort.
There are some suprising twists in the story and I found the book "unputdownable"
