Slab City Blues Synopsis: One good thing about the books is you don’t need to read them in order. You can read them out of order and there’s no problem with that. However like any book series, it’s best to read them in order. In the first novel, McLeod, the bourbon addict, is suspended from the force. But that doesn’t mean he can’t investigate – and he does just that after a mystery posed to him by a vampire.
