He's suave, he's sexy, he's cool . . . and he's an undertaker. Hitchcock Sewell is back in one of the funniest and most fast-paced novels yet, in Tim Cockey's celebrated award-winning series.

A man has been murdered in his kitchen. And the apparent killer wants Hitch to scoop up the body and take it away . . . before the police have arrived. Meanwhile, across town, Hitch smells a rat--maybe two--in the nursing home where an old friend of his has taken up residence. With his matchless wit and uncommon ability to dig out the truth, Hitch is once again up to his old tricks . . . and mystery readers couldn't be happier.

The main character, undertaker Hitchcock Sewell, as described by his ex-wife: "Listen, lovey, you're a curious cat. You itch easily. You were born under the sign of skeptic."

"Backstabber" is mildly amusing, vaguely satirical. Would make a good series for TV in the vein of the old Rockford Files, which starred James Garner.

Although this is only one of several Cockey novels featuring Hitchcock Sewell, one was enough for me - I won't be reading the others.

"The lines between fact and memory and willful self-delusion are wobbly ones."
