The Good the Bad and the Undead is the second installment of the "The Hollows" series (To other this is called "The Rachel Morgan series"). Rachel Morgan, the series' sexy witch and one of the proprietor of a an independing runner service along with his partner's Jenks, a pixie and Ivy Tahmwood, a living vamapire (aka vampire with a soul).
This time Rachel accepts a contract from the FIB (Federal Inderland Bureau) to investigate a wave of witch murders and she goes undercover to spy on her former professor. Morgan suspects councilman Trent Kalamack of the murders (Along the way we also learn more about Kalamack's history). I like how the story gets resolve with an intertwined new predicament to the protagonist which will basically serve as a precurser to the next book.
The characters continue to develop so it isn't just the same plot but a different adventure. The evolution and and complex relationships of the characters is part of what makes you care about them.
As always I love the witty banters between Rachel and Jenks (who I would now considered the resident comic relief of this series). Ivy's character continues her to emphasize his character being "mysterious" and she always give Rachel the "creep" whenever she 'vamps-out'. "The Good, the Bad and the Undead" is a followup to the series as a whole and with an in-depth revelation about Trent Kalamack, I suspect that this character becomes a factor to Rachel's history as series goes into a much more interesting path.
