Publisher's Summary

Outside the apartment where a wake is going on, the manager of the A&P across the street is robbed. Reverend Short, a storefront preacher addicted to opium and brandy, is watching from a bedroom window in the flat. He leans out too far and falls, but a huge bread basket, sitting outside the bakery below, saves him. Back inside, he says he sees a vision of a dead man. Outside, in the very basket Short landed in, lies the body of Valentine Haines. Who murdered Val? It is up to Grave Digger Jones and Coffin Ed Johnson to find out.

What the Critics Say

"this mystery is full of wonderfully stereotypical characters, portrayed by Dion Graham in a silky voice...Graham's characterizations of gangsters, preachers, and thieves are energetic and imaginative, especially when the action heats up. This period whodunit is a treat for listeners who enjoy hearing zany characters brought to life with panache." (Audiofile)
