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

Seven of the nine deliveries (chapters) of the new KCDS collection contain the longest story in the youthful paranormal detective troupe's career. At its center is a teenage girl hiding under a new name at her old school because she is strongly, but not conclusively, suspected of murdering her mother. She didn't, of course, but it takes quite an exciting while, capped by a last-minute rescue, for the KCDS to figure out who did. The other two deliveries concern a ghoulishly creepy athlete-doping case. All nine show off Otsuka and Yamazaki's supernatural detectives at their amusing best.--Olson, Ray Copyright 2010 Booklist
