Why would a dead man need an alibi? 

Bug and Roche work for the National Detective Agency. They solve mysteries for a living using well established, step-by-step procedures—and plenty of wisecracks, insults and bad office coffee. 

When they’re sent to check out a suspicious car crash involving an already dead driver, they smell something fishy. They quickly work out the crash was part a much larger crime—a multimillion-dollar-bank heist. But unravelling the connections isn’t easy—especially when more people start dying—and the coffee isn’t getting any better. 

Witty and wise, with a nod to the golden age of pulp fiction, Alibi for a Dead Man is an ingenious novel by a talented newcomer.
