The reason that I am not a fan of book series is because most authors simply don't have the ability to draw out a plot to several books. They either run out of ideas and coast or they blatantly continue with the only real motivation being the money it brings in. Charlie Huston is not one of those writers. His Joe Pitt series never lets up in excitement or imagination and the totality of five books is just enough to tell his story. My Dead Body is the fifth and last of the series and it is one of the best wrap-ups I've ever seen. The novel brings all the loose ends together in a satisfying ending. The New York vampire clans and Huston's dogged anti-hero Joe Pitt finally end up in a war that answers all of Pitt's questions. And does Pitt finally get the girl? Got to read it to find out.
