Mortuary Confidential

Mortuary Confidential: Undertakers Spill the Dirt - Todd Harra, Todd Harra

Mortuary Confidential is a collection of tales about the funeral business.

So, in the wake of my grandmother's death, I was thinking about the great beyond a bit and stumbled upon this. Since I have nearly infinite store credit at the local used bookstore, I snapped it up.

This is not precisely the book I thought it would be. I was expecting hilarious, inappropriate stories. While some of the stories were funny, most were just interesting. I guess I can't fault the book for that.

Some favorite tales include a mortician locking himself out of the hearse, two brothers beating the shit out of each other at a funeral, and the bottom of a casket dropping out while the pallbearers were carrying it.

Mortuary Confidential is a fun read but don't expect it to be a barrel of laughs. Three out of five stars.
