KIRKUS REVIEW

Charlie Brody is missing. And right after the organization had given him ""Not Just a send-off, a modern send-off...""an A-1 Cecil B. DeMille extravaganza of a funeral. They had also unwittingly put to rest a quarter of a million worth of heroin in Charlie's burial suit.

Merriment, mayhem and a plot that reaLLy keeps you guessing...
