My concerns when I read Dark Undertakings was that a series based around an undertaker was going to get a bit predictable and silly. I’m glad to say that this second in the series wasn’t predictable or silly. The author has moved Drew Slocombe on and he now owns his own small business - a natural burial ground. I can see more milage in the series from here. Which is good because I like the characters and want to know what happens next. Rebecca Tope has a knack for creating characters who do the kind of things that make you think ‘oh that would only work in a book’ but who seem very realistic at the same time. Delightful really. I wish these books were easier to get hold of.
