My concerns when I read Dark Undertakings was that a series based around an undertaker was going to get a bit predictable and silly.

This was a very interesting book. Drew Slocumbe is an undertaking and owner of Peaceful Repose Cemetary. One day, a body is discovered buried there, but Drew and his staff don't know who buried it, which leads Drew to investigate the mysterious body.

This book is very entertaining.
