Summary:

In San Francisco, the souls of the dead are mysteriously disappearing—and you know that can’t be good—in New York Times bestselling author Christopher Moore’s delightfully funny sequel to A Dirty Job.
Something really strange is happening in the City by the Bay. People are dying, but their souls are not being collected. Someone—or something—is stealing them and no one knows where they are going, or why, but it has something to do with that big orange bridge. Death Merchant Charlie Asher is just as flummoxed as everyone else. He’s trapped in the body of a fourteen-inch-tall “meat puppet” waiting for his Buddhist nun girlfriend, Audrey, to find him a suitable new body to play host.
To get to the bottom of this abomination, a motley crew of heroes will band together: the seven-foot-tall death merchant Minty Fresh; retired policeman turned bookseller Alphonse Rivera; the Emperor of San Francisco and his dogs, Bummer and Lazarus; and Lily, the former Goth girl. Now if only they can get little Sophie to stop babbling about the coming battle for the very soul of humankind . . .

    I don't even know where to start. I think you need to read the first book to really appreciate Secondhand Souls in all its glorious silliness. My favorite (paraphrased) line in the book is [spoken with all seriousness]: "I can't call the precinct about a 14-inch person with the head of a cat talking about cheese monsters." I liked the book. I need more Chris Moore.

    You have to appreciate Christopher Moore to get into this book. There are strange pieces that make it hard to explain why you like the book. It's not my favorite book of his, but still a solid read.
