"Thanks Cindy A. Christiansen. I got sucked into Caskets and Corruption so bad. I just read a wee 70%, and I have no idea how I'm going to fall asleep, but I have to because lil dude won't sleep in for me. I can not believe its 1:30am!!!! I'm so gonna die tomorrow. Darn you awesome author!!!!!" ~ Sarah Daley
This book is by one of my favorite authors, Cindy Christiansen. It takes you into the lives of two very interesting characters, who have two very interesting, absolutely necessary, heart wrenching, but little thought about careers. Both of the main characters deal with different aspects of death and dealing with those left behind in the most gentle and caring way possible.
BUT, that is not the main emphasis of Cindy's wonderful, enlightening, and fast-paced story. The plot is filled with intrigue, romance, and the antics of an adorable canine!

This is a fun, exciting, suspenseful story that starts out and just keeps gaining momentum as you go. Each of the characters in the story has a well developed, distinct personality; and I felt as if I knew them all by the end—even the pet “dog”.
The underlying stories that make the primary characters seem to be so distant and solitary are also developed well. Information is inserted in a timely fashion to keep the interest up and the personal interaction progressing.
The probability of anyone, under any circumstances, encountering so many and varied obstacles in such a short time keeps the story awash with a wide variety of interesting solutions. Anyone needing to travel anywhere with virtually no resources should probably read this book to pick up some ideas for survival.
The environments and facts presented are accurate to the best of my understanding and indicate a level of research to keep the credibility there.
I enjoyed reading this interesting story and recommend it to any reader as one that could provide a tear or two, some smiles and laughs, as well as some cause for thoughtful pondering.
Ms. Christiansen writes a fast-paced story where two very different characters are thrown together with a funny, hairless dog, and must find a way to survive. She takes them on a wild ride, throwing them into situations that take them deeper and deeper into trouble, and you wonder how they can ever get out. Add in some humor, suspense, and tenderness and you’ve got a great story I’d recommend to everyone.

Multi-published author of romance and suspense
A funeral director and a portrait artist spontaneously take on the fight against crime, as they seize incriminating evidence and hit the road. Much character development takes place en route to their destination, each helping the other overcome scars left by devastating life events. This is a book with depth to the characters and substance to the plot. It is rich with interesting information presented by the characters as each of their life passions are revealed. The story contains humor, romance, and those who love dogs will especially appreciate the relationship developed between the hero and heroine and a feisty Chinese Crested dog who enjoys all the action as much as you will when you read Caskets and Corruption by Cindy A. Christiansen.
