Praise for Morgue Mama... "[A] witty and engaging caper...genuine excitement right through the stunning conclusion." -Publishers Weekly In the world of newspapers, the morgue is the place-usually somewhere in the bowels of the building-where old story clippings are filed away. Dolly Madison Sprowls has been in charge of The Hannawa Herald-Union's morgue for more than 40 years. She is gruff and salty, well past the age of retirement, and the unchallenged queen of her ink-stained domain. Reporters call her Morgue Mama-but only behind her back. Maddy's well-ordered world is turned upside-down when the paper hires 24-year-old Aubrey McGinty for its police beat. Aubrey loses no time in questioning the conviction of Sissy James for the murder of TV evangelist Buddy Wing. Sissy had confessed live on television, and the evidence seems overwhelming, but the ambitious young reporter doesn't believe she did it. But why did Sissy embrace guilt? Aubrey enlists Maddy's help and together they begin a harrowing search for the truth. Digging into the files, they soon-dangerously-uncover enough suspects to fill a studio with those who do the devil's work. C.R. Corwin is the pseudonym of Rob Levandoski, a former newspaper reporter in Akron, Ohio. During his career in journalism, he covered police and schools, wrote for the entertainment department, and snapped pictures for the Medina County Gazette. He later worked in public relations, edited political science textbooks, wrote book reviews for The [Cleveland] Plain Dealer and taught writing courses at the University of Akron. He died unexpectedly in 2008 at age 59.
