The Good, the Bad, and the Undead - Kim Harrison

While this one wasn't as much of a push through read as book one, I still didn't flow into it easily. I'm starting to think that short stories are the authors best medium. Too many conflicting/overlapping/annoying threads to the story and one really irritating loose end. What the hell happened to the professor? I'll try book three just to see if that question is answered, but I'm losing faith that a full novel is worth it.
