Of course, the biggest change is bringing in a nun to pair with the irreverent Pascha. Marlene is such a polar opposite to the young man that it's fun to watch them get used to each other and finally begin to work together. While Martin remains a rather static character, Pascha does not. From being in the presence of people with much stronger morals and much more education than he's used to, readers can see how his language changes, how he thinks things through, and how his natural inclinations for compassion and doing what's right are growing stronger. It seems as though Pascha has to earn his wings before he can step into the light.
One scene in Morgue Drawer Next Door did not work for me. Pascha, Marlene, and Martin's girlfriend Birgit have gone off to try to catch a killer while Martin stays at home to work on an invention. I won't go into detail about the scene, but Martin's behavior just does not ring true to his character.
On the other hand, Pascha and Marlene find themselves in a situation that's familiar to crime fiction readers: they know whom the killer is, but there's no proof and a very real chance that the person will go free. However, these two crime fighters have a few tools unavailable to us mortals, and how they set about to force the murderer to confess is absolutely hilarious.
Jutta Profijt is proving to be a writer who can think outside the box-- and one who can make me laugh out loud as I read her books. I'm definitely looking forward to continuing with this series.
This story is about the death from a fire in a convent. Martin is in the hospital and during one of Pascha's spiritual visits, he runs into another ex-alive person, Sister Marlene. Thus, the story develops as he has a new running buddy in the world that doesn't have to wait for the door to open before entering the room.
Though a nearly constantly praying nun is not Pascha's idea of a fun partner for crime solving, he is stuck with helping to find her killer. Of course, that has to involve someone who can actually be physically involved. Martin is dragged (in a manner of speaking) into getting involved.
This series is just fun reading. The situation is unique, the writing is lighthearted (yeah, even with death by fire), and the other characters interesting. This nearly falls into the "cozy" murder category and those who like such should find entertainment with this series by Jutta Profijt. Fortunately, there are at least two more in the series.
However, Pascha is drawn into the odd events at the convent where a mysterious fire resulted in the death of one nun and the hospitalization of another.
I was interested in where Jutta Profijt was going to take this mismatched pair for the second in the series and I wasn't disappointed. While the pacing was a bit uneven and the beginning slow, it ends with some very lively action.
I took advantage of the Whispersync for audio deal which allowed me to take up my Kindle when the iPhone I was listening to it on ran out of battery at an important moment. It did start right at the point the audible had stopped.
The narrator, as before, was excellent.
First in the series is Morgue Drawer Four and the third book is Morgue Drawer for Rent.
