I have a book on my bookshelf that doesn't seem to have all of the info for it and was wondering if there was a way to edit it that I'm not seeing. The book is listed as Cruel, but it should be Cruel and Unusual (and it's part of a series and other books in PBS are listed with "Kay Scarpetta, Bk 4" after the title).

Yes.  On the book page there is a pull down option called Edit Book Data.  Under More Options.  That brings up a form to edit.  The Book edit team are all volunteers, so it really helps if you cite locations where you are getting the data, such as Amazon.  Or the book itself.

There is also a book wiki at the bottom of the book page.  That is a great place to add info about the series.

The Team reviews every edit before changing them.  So the changes do not show up right away.  Be patient.  They seem to edit in big clumps.

They will also PM you if they have a question, don't agree with the edit or if you made a mistake and they fixed it.
