Three Days to Dead (Dreg City #1) by Kelly Meding
Three Days to Dead is Kelly Meding‘s first novel. It’s about Evangeline Stone, who wakes up naked and cold on a morgue slab and has three days to solve her own murder. Problem is, she doesn’t remember what happened, she’s in a stranger’s body and she has lots of enemies from her life as a bounty hunter, tracking and killing non-humans.
I bought this book because Patricia Briggs blurbed it, calling it “gritty, imaginative, and a terrific read.” I wasn’t totally sold on the premise so it sat in my To Read pile for a while. When I finally picked it up, I was really pleased with it. Three Days to Dead is gripping and fun and has good characters. I ended up reading it through pretty quickly because I just couldn’t put it down. It’s hard to believe this is her first book because it was a really solid story.
