The Morgue and Me by John C. Ford

Christopher is spending his summer working in a morgue. One day while sitting in the Medical Examiners office he finds an envelope full of money. Christopher thinks of himself as the next James Bond so he immediately senses something is not right and sets out to find out what it is. When the body of a man is brought in Christopher decides to examine it when nobody is around. What he finds doesn't match up with the death certificate so now he is out to solve the mystery. He teams up with a young newspaper writer to uncover what the Sheriff and other people in authority seem to be hiding. Friendships are tested, danger around every corner, Christopher decides that maybe he doesn't want to be a Spy after all.

I enjoyed the action in this book. There were definate times that I didn't want to have to put the book down. The things that I didn't care for were the language and some sexual references. I think YA books are really disappointing me with the "trying to keep it real" mentality.
