Summary

Summary

Your body is their business! Five young students at a Buddhist university, three guys and two girls, find little call for their job skills in today's Tokyo... among the living, that is! But all that stuff in college they were told would never pay off - you know, channeling, dowsing, ESP - gives them a direct line to the dead... the dead who are still trapped in their corpses and can't move on to the next reincarnation. The five form the Kurosagi (Black Heron' - their ominous bird logo) Corpse Delivery Service.'

Booklist Review

Kuro Karatsu and the gang are back, this time to schlep the body of an executed prisoner who murdered Ao's family 15 years ago. Attempts to deliver the corpse lead the crew into a larger mystery involving the sinister Nire Ceremony funeral home, a little girl who can raise the dead, and a psychotic doctor. The tongue-in-cheek horror series' genius continues to lie in its subtle balancing of humor and suspense. Less episodic than the first volume, this one thus allows for more plot twists and turns. Not for the faint of heart, unless they expect gore and nudity. --Tina Coleman Copyright 2007 Booklist
