The main character, undertaker Hitchcock Sewell, as described by his ex-wife: "Listen, lovey, you're a curious cat. You itch easily. You were born under the sign of skeptic."

"Backstabber" is mildly amusing, vaguely satirical. Would make a good series for TV in the vein of the old Rockford Files, which starred James Garner.

Although this is only one of several Cockey novels featuring Hitchcock Sewell, one was enough for me - I won't be reading the others.

"The lines between fact and memory and willful self-delusion are wobbly ones."
