Does anyone know which one of the Southern Vampire books Lily Bard and her husband Jack Leeds appeared in?

I read that "somewhere" recently, but didn't pay attention at the time. Not having read the Lily Bard books yet,  I didn't know I cared.  Don't know if they are sort of a cameo appearance or a significant presence.

I think it was one of the last 2 paperbacks to come out.  Maybe the last one.

Thanks for narrowing it down for me.  I went over to Amazon book reviews and looked through the ones for those two books.  Someone mentioned it in the reviews for Dead As A Doornail.  So that's the one.   Apparently they are in a couple of chapters in their role of private investigators.

It was in the fourth book - Lily and her husband are investigating the disappearance of Debbie Pelt.  They may show up in thr fifth as well, as by the end of the fourth one they hadn't let up on Sookie.

I think it is just the one book that they appear.  I didn't really think it added anything to the story at all.   Especially since they decided that Sookie was not involved in the disappearance of Debbie Pelt, and she was.  It's the one where Sookie goes to the funeral with the Wolf Pack guy, Alcide, or whatever his name was. 

Does anyone actually know how to pronounce that guy's name?  I would love to know.  I can't get a feel for it in my head.

In the audio books she says it like this Al-seed.
