Meet Me at the Morgue is the story of a kidnapping that led to four murders. In his search for the killer, Howard Cross digs deep into the Los Angeles underworld, finding along the way a beautiful, lost adolescent mourning a dead lover, a suitcase hidden under an aging sadist’s bed, and a slovenly gentleman with an ice pick in his neck. Ross Macdonald has never written a story quite like this, and neither has anyone else.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“My favorite...[Macdonald] is first among those novelists who raised the genre from its roots in pulp fiction to serious literature.” P.D. James, from Talking About Detective Fiction
“All the pace and excitment of earlier Macdonalds...A legitimately surising solution.” New York Times
 “A gorgeous look at the late 1940s…fine listening for Macdonald fans.” AudioFile
“One of the fastest moving, snappiest five-and-a-half hours you will ever spend trying to figure out who dun’ it…This is a terrific listen…Gardener’s work here is amazing…it’s hard to think that anyone who enjoys a good mystery wouldn’t like this one.” Audiobookstoday.com

Ross Macdonald (1915–1983) was the pen name of Kenneth Millar. Born near San Francisco but raised in British Columbia, he returned to the United States as a young man and published his first novel in 1944. For over twenty years he lived in Santa Barbara and wrote mystery novels about the fascinating and changing society of his native state. He is widely credited with elevating the detective novel to the level of literature with his compactly written tales of murder and despair. His works have received awards from the Mystery Writers of America and of Great Britain, and his book The Moving Target was made into the movie Harper in 1966. In 1982 he was awarded the Eye Award for Lifetime Achievement from the Private Eye Writers of America.
