The main character, Axel Pimletz, works for a local newspaper in Boston writing obituaries. He's kind of a slimy guy as he spends a lot of his downtime calling sex hotlines and doing other unsavory things. He gets himself wrapped up in a murder mystery and eventually helps to connect it to another murder which then allows him to help prevent another one from happening. And that's pretty much the end of the story.

This book was terrible. The plot was very boring and unimpressive. I hated the way the writer was constantly clarifying when the main character was thinking or speaking as if it wasn't obvious 99.9% of the time. I would definitely not recommend.
