What is Adam Simcox reading?

About The Ungrateful Dead, from the publisher:
The gripping third instalment in Adam Simcox's supernatural crime DYING SQUAD series.


Detective Joe Lazarus is missing. The Dying Squad are on the case, but following reports of his sighting, signs suggest he may have fallen back into his criminal ways.
