-- The Last Dead Girl by Harry Dolan. The story starts off fast and gets complicated from there, with plenty of twists and turns, a crowded cast, and terrific writing. This series can't be beat.
The Last Dead Girl is the third book in Dolan's David Loogan series. In the narrative chronology, it is a prequel to the first two books, Bad Things Happen (reviewed here) and Very Bad Men (reviewed here).
