Sexy earth witch and leather-loving bounty hunter Rachel Morgan returns in The Good, the Bad, and the Undead, the sequel to Kim Harrison's wildly popular debut novel, Dead Witch Walking. Rachel's newest adventure finds her hot on the trail of a serial killer -- and she's his next target!
Having recently quit her job as a runner (supernatural bounty hunter) for Inderland Security to form her own agency, Rachel is finding it hard to make ends meet. Living in an old church in the Hollows of Cincinnati with an ill-tempered vampire named Ivy Tamwood and a wisecracking pixie named Jenks, she is forced to take any job she can get -- like rescuing a baseball team's mascot! But after a series of gruesome murders involving witches, Rachel is hired by the Federal Inderland Bureau to help track down the killer. Her investigation leads her to Trent Kalamack, a powerful councilman with ties to the supernatural underground. But as Rachel gets closer to the killer, she learns more about her own mysterious past -- and what she finds out could kill her!
Fans of hybrid series that blend genres -- horror, romance, mystery, and fantasy -- like Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake novels, Charlaine Harris's Southern Vampire saga, and Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld sequence -- will undoubtedly enjoy Harrison's novels. With strong female characters, breakneck pacing, and enough juicy subplots and villainous secret agendas to power a daytime soap opera indefinitely, these novels are utterly readable: the very definition of guilty pleasure.
