Audio Review: Dead Serious Case #1 Miz Dusty Le Frey Crawshanks Guide to the Recently Departed By: Vawn Cassidy Narrated by: Joel Leslie

"This book is a great start to this series. I can’t wait for the next book!" Alyssagp on Dead Serious Case #1 Miz Dusty Le Frey.   

From the blurb:

In the business of unfinished business....

Tristan Everett has always preferred the company of the dead because they usually don't talk back. Being a somewhat awkward introvert working as a pathologist at the Hackney Public Mortuary suits him just fine. That is, until a freak accident with a rogue ice cube and suddenly he can see ghosts. No longer content to just lie on the table and let him figure out how they died, they're now peering over his shoulder critiquing his work and confessing their most lascivious sins before skipping off merrily into the afterlife.

Just when he thought his life couldn't get any weirder, sassy drag queen, Dusty Le Frey, is wheeled in with a toe tag, and she's not prepared to go quietly into the light. Not only is she furious at the prospect of spending eternity in last season's gold lame, she's determined that he help her solve her murder.

Suddenly Tristan finds himself thrown into a world of sequins and fake eyelashes, and worse still, he may have developed a bit of a crush on Scotland Yard's brand-new drool-worthy detective, Inspector Danny Hayes, who's been assigned to Dusty's murder. Oh, and as the icing on top of a really crappy cake, the killer now wants him dead, too....

All he ever wanted was a simple life but suddenly he's juggling work, a deliciously sexy detective, a stubborn ghost, and a relentless murderer...and things have just gotten dead serious....

From author Wendy Saunders writing as Vawn Cassidy comes this hot and funny, slow-burn, opposites-attract paranormal caper across the East End of London.

Alyssagp's Review:

Dead Serious, the first book, is entertaining! I enjoyed the sarcasm and quirkiness of the main character Tristan and the drag Queen Dusty. 

I loved the interactions between Dusty and Tristan; the contrast between the two is so fun! The slow-burn romance between Tristan and his love interest Danny was endearing. I enjoyed this book immensely. I need the next book! 

Joel Leslie and the Vawn Cassidy are a great duo! I can’t wait for the next book and audiobook!
