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

The new set of deliveries (chapters) about five contemporary Buddhist students using paranormal powers to solve murder mysteries serves romance with the usual chills and laughter. In the first, single-delivery story, the group tries recruiting new members to get a bigger campus meeting room; the one good prospect is pretty but spectrally elusive. In the following three-delivery adventure, they have to deal with big-time Yakuza, and the three-parter after it involves encountering an enterprise tangential to theirs. In all three stories, a KCDS-er becomes smitten as the plot unfolds, and distinctive Japanese funerary traditions are illustrated as well as explained. What a rich series this is.--Olson, Ray Copyright 2009 Booklist
