In San Francisco, the souls of the dead are mysteriously disappearing—and you know that can't be good—in New York Times bestselling author Christopher Moore's delightfully funny sequel to A Dirty Job.Something really strange is happening in the City by the Bay. People are dying, but their souls are not being collected. Someone—or something—is stealing them and no one knows where they are going, or why, but it has something to do with that big orange bridge. Death Merchant Charlie Asher is just as flummoxed as everyone else. He's trapped in the body of a fourteen-inch-tall "meat puppet" waiting for his Buddhist nun girlfriend, Audrey, to find him a suitable new body to play host.To get to the bottom of this abomination, a motley crew of heroes will band together: the seven-foot-tall death merchant Minty Fresh; retired policeman turned bookseller Alphonse Rivera; the Emperor of San Francisco and his dogs, Bummer and Lazarus; and Lily, the former Goth girl. Now if only they can get little Sophie to stop babbling about the coming battle for the very soul of humankind . . .

Didn't finish it - too many characters and a confusing plot

Feb 20, 2016

This was a fun audio to listen to. It was fun visiting with Charlie and the gang again. The narration, by Fisher Stevens, was excellent. He added energy and excitement to the story and got all the voices just right.
The story took a little while to get going. At first, there was a lot of rehashing of A Dirty Job to get the reader up to pace but once the story got going, it was an interesting continuation of the story.
The humour had it's delightful moments, Minty & Lemon Fresh were wonderful and Charlie & Sophie made a great father-daughter team.
A fun story.
