This is the second book in the "Dead" series. The first book was Dead Wrong, it was the better book of the two. Dead Certain had a lot of action, and you should read the first book, just to get a feel for the characters. Although certain parts did tend to drag, I was still a good read. Her books are well written, and although some consider them "romantic suspense", I did find much romance. If you liked this book, read her Mercy series (3 books) and her Truth series. All are quick reads--great for the beach, pool side or plane.
