Lieutenant Al Wheeler works for the County Sheriff s office as an investigator The novel opens in a mortuary with the discovery of a young lady asleep in a coffin She has no clue how she got there but when another coffin is opened and an associate of a prominent doctor of a research foundation is found inside with a bullet hole in his forehead, Wheeler knows it s going to be a long day I ve read a few Carter Brown books over the past couple of years but this is only my second in the Al Wheeler series Carter Brown is the pseudonym of the prolific Alan Geoffrey Yates and I would say this book is typical of his output These books are best read for the witty dialog and absurd humorous situations rather than the mystery elements Al Wheeler is adept at solving the mystery but this takes secondary importance to his
The Good The finest in 60 s cheap paperbacks hackneyed writing, ludicrous plot, and wildly outdated attitudes A brisk, easy read Though it s played straight, it wouldn t be hard to believe that Girl in a Shroud was written with tongue planted firmly in cheek The Bad The unlikable characters and sexist attitudes will be a turn off for some
crap Awful The one good thing about this book was that it was short, so it didn t take long to read
