Pete Talbott is a California native and harried Boston computer wonk still grieving over the death of his wife Terri, when he found himself at the wrong end of Gino Parini's .45 reading his own obituary torn from that morning's newspaper. Talbott figured it was all a big mistake
until Parini showed him his wife's obituary too, and this was a mystery Talbott couldn't leave alone. From a funeral home in Indiana, to car chases on the Dan Ryan, a bloody Back Bay townhouse, snipers in New York City's Washington Square, sleazy lawyers, corrupt County sheriffs, mafia hit men, the FBI, an army of Chicago cops, and that unforgettable scene in the upper berth of an Amtrak Train, The Undertaker is a thrill ride with a touch of humor and romance. Someone with a penchant for sharp scalpels and embalming tables is planting bodies under other people's names; and if Talbott doesn't stop them, he and his quirky new
girlfriend, Sandy Kasmarek, will be next on the Undertaker's list.
If you enjoyed The Undertaker, take a look at the author's new suspense novel, Amongst My Enemies. An old German U-Boat lies rusting on the bottom of the Baltic. Inside are millions in gold, stolen art and jewels, and a secret that could tear NATO apart.
The Undertaker now has 16 Five-Star and 15 Four-Star Reviews from independent reviewers and bloggers, and only one grump who didn't like it.

The Undertaker, my first e-book, is a snarky, fun, fast-paced domestic thriller with a slug of humor, romance, and stark terror!
