The Ambivalent Corpse – Jerold Last

Start the series where it all begins! The Ambivalent Corpse, the first novel in the Roger and Suzanne mystery series, finds private detective Roger Bowman and his girlfriend scientist Suzanne Foster traveling through Uruguay, Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina to solve a baffling and grotesque murder case. Parts of a dismembered corpse are found on a rocky stretch of beach in Montevideo, Uruguay, apportioned equally between Memorials to the Graf Spee, a German cruiser sunk in World War II, and the Holocaust. Because of the murder victim’s strategic location shared between two antithetical monuments, the Uruguayan press names her “The Ambivalent Corpse”. This fast paced mystery has plenty of action in an exotic locale. While the novel is basically a tough mystery story, it adheres to the cozy conventions of clean language and no explicit sex.
