Never Trust a Dead Man

ebook
This winner of the Edgar Award for Best Young Adult Mystery is "an entertaining blend of fantasy, whodunit, and comedy" (School Library Journal).

When Selwyn, a farmer, is accused of murdering his rival, Farold, he is sealed in the village burial cave with Farold's moldering corpse to await starvation—or worse. Worse comes along quickly in the form of a witch who raises Farold from the dead. Selwyn thought he disliked Farold when he was alive, but that was nothing compared to working by the dead man's side as they search for the real killer.

"Murder, magic, salacious secrets, and sparkling wit immediately pull the reader into this engrossing medieval whodunit . . . universally appealing and difficult to put down." —Kirkus Reviews

"A tongue-in-cheek medieval farce and a supernatural mystery." —Library Journal

"An entertaining book that will attract both fantasy and mystery readers." —Booklist
