“Merriment, mayhem and a plot that really keeps you guessing” from the Grand Master of Mystery and author of the John Dortmunder novels (Kirkus Reviews). The corpse isn’t anybody special—a low-level drug courier—but it has been so long since the organization’s last grand funeral that Nick Rovito decides to give the departed a big send-off. He pays for a huge church, a procession of Cadillacs, and an ocean of flowers, and enjoys the affair until he learns the dead man is going to his grave wearing the blue suit. Rovito summons Engel, his right-hand man, and tells him to get a shovel. Inside the lining of the blue suit jacket is $250,000 worth of uncut heroin, smuggled back from Baltimore the day the courier died. When Engel’s shovel strikes coffin, he braces himself for the encounter with the dead man. But the coffin is empty, the heroin gone, and Engel has no choice but to track down the missing body or face his boss’s wrath.

This story happens in the early 1800s in Europe. If anyone knew how to instill fear into anyone, that would be Jack. He was not like many regular boys in spite of how poor his family was. With the mysterious loss of his father and brother, that did not stop him from being a little unruly sometimes. His village was a tight-knit one, where everyone knew who you were and what transpired in your home. Jack’s disappearance brought everyone in the village closer together. He set out one day on a mission for his mother but didn’t follow through with her instructions. This was going to be the beginning of a very long day for Jack. Not only was he lost but never returned home. What happened to him next was what he feared most.
