A Dead Man's Tale, by James D. Doss

One of the things I have become more aware of in this series is the use of humor and sarcasm. Generally, the further one is from the "action" in the book, the more loosey-goosey and relaxed--and even downright silly--is the writing. There is some choice goofiness going on in the description of Samuel Reed, the Dead Man of the title, whose Charlie and Scott are hired to prevent. They do, only to find they've been snookered by a pro. Fun(ny) book. Aunt Daisy is particularly devilish in it.
