Holly Jackson is the author of the New York Times bestseller A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder. She started writing stories at a young age, completing her first (poor) attempt at a novel when she was 15. As Good as Dead: The Finale to A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder (Delacorte Press) concludes Jackson’s three-part young adult mystery series. As Pip is about to head to college, she is still haunted by the way her last investigation ended. She’s used to online death threats in the wake of her true-crime podcast, but there’s an anonymous person who keeps asking her: Who will look for you when you’re the one who disappears? Soon the threats escalate. Someone is leaving dead pigeons in Pip’s front yard and mysterious chalk figures in her driveway – and following her. When she starts to find connections between her stalker and a local serial killer caught six years ago, she wonders if maybe the wrong man is behind bars. When the police refuse to act, Pip has only one choice: find the suspect herself, or be the next victim. Kirkus called it “intricately plotted and heart-pounding.”
