The Last Dead Girl (David Loogan #3) by Harry Dolan

Book Description

January 9, 2014
David Loogan’s dark past is revealed in this prequel to Bad Things Happen—the critically acclaimed mystery that Stephen King called a “great fucking book.”On a rainy night in April, a chance encounter on a lonely road draws David into a romance with Jana Fletcher, a beautiful young law student. Jana is an enigma: living in a run-down apartment and sporting a bruise on her cheek that she refuses to explain. David would like to know her secrets, but he lets them lie—until it’s too late.
When Jana is brutally murdered, the police consider David a prime suspect. But as he sets out to uncover the truth about Jana, he begins to realize he’s treading a very dangerous path—and that her killer is watching every move he makes.
Review –
This is the first book that I have read by this author and is a “prequel” to his other books but since I had no knowledge of his other works this was a total surprise for me.
It is a murder mystery written with a Noir feel to it. There are  many flashbacks but they are not in any order and were confusing at times but because the plot was so mesmerizing I  didn’t let that hinder my five-star rating of the book. There are twists and turns that you don’t see coming and that is always a plus in a good mystery.  If you are fond of Noir and great murder mysteries – put this one on the top of your “to be read” list. I had the audio version and had to make myself take breaks or I would have listened to it straight through and it was almost thirteen hours long!
