Morgue Drawer Four, by Jutta Profijt
Car thief Pascha is pushed off a bridge after stealing a Mercedes with a body in the trunk. With a high blood alcohol level and a bottle of schnaps in his pocket, Pascha is quickly pronounced the victim of a fatal accident. Pascha's spirit won't put up with this tarnishing of his reputation, and he badgers the coroner, Martin Gansewein, into helping investigate, putting Martin's career, love life, and mortal life in danger. Quite entertaining.
