Noël Rippe-Cermak | 6 comments I recall coming across a book late last year or early this year that I believe was a mystery, possibly a dark comedy, possibly part of a series (which will sound confusing in a moment)... It involves two male detectives that are friends, possibly retired policemen, possibly bumbling. I believe both of main characters die at some point - they may both be ghosts. I recall the synopsis treating the fact of their deaths with humor.

Noël, are you still looking for this or did you find it?

Noël Rippe-Cermak | 6 comments Thank you for the suggestions! Yes, possibly still looking; I am trying to get my hands on a copy of the first book in the Bryant and May series to determine if we're a match. I will be sure to update once I know for sure, but this is sounding very promising so far.
