Book Review: The Good, The Bad, and The Undead (Rachel Morgan #2) by Kim Harrison

Former-bounty-hunter Rachel Morgan has it pretty good. She's left the corrupt Inderland Runner Service and started her own independent service. She's survived werewolves, shape-changing demons, bad-hair days, and sharing a church with her vampire roommate Ivy. She even has a cute (if human) boyfriend-what more could a witch want?

But living with a reformed vampire isn't all it's cracked up to be, particularly when your roommate's very bad ex-boyfriend wants her back, and wouldn't mind you in the process. And especially when he's six feet of sheer supernatural seduction, and you've got a demon mark that makes vampires literally hotter than hell....

The second Rachel Morgan book has her trying to catch a serial killer.  She is working with the human-run FIB and is posing as a college student to spy on a professor who is a suspect.  Book one left Rachel very suspicious of Trent Kalamack so she's focusing more of her attention on him.  This book was a better read than Dead Witch Walking.  Rachel is a mostly likeable heroine; not as much as Sookie Stackhouse, but I like her all the same. 

Just One Gripe:
I'm tired of reading about Rachel's vampire-made boots.  So they are silent, supple, and great---I get it already!
