The Empty Coffin by Gary Moore
I thoroughly enjoyed The Empty Coffin and look forward to finding more books by this New Zealand author.
The story is set in Auckland and is an unusual feel-good thriller. The main character is a Maori man who lays out the bodies at a funeral home and makes sure that they look nice for their families. He leaves work late one night after taking a long time over a young boy who was stabbed to death. When he returns the next morning, the body is gone. Please can we get some more books by this author!
