Just finished the fourth book in Chuck Wendig's "Miriam Black" series. I started reading them earlier this month. 'Blackbirds', 'Mockingbird', 'Cormorant', and 'Thunderbird'. They grabbed me more than anything I've read in years, and I can tell you exactly why: Mr. Wendig is very good at giving his characters terrible, horrible problems and complicating their attempts to fix said problems.
The books aren't for everyone. Much like Wendig's blog, the novels are full of cursing and morbid humor and darkness and horror. I find them incredibly entertaining, though.
