About the Book- As Good As Dead by Holly Jackson

The finale to A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder series. By the end of this mystery series, you’ll never think of good girls the same way again…

Pip is about to head to college, but she is still haunted by the way her last investigation ended. She’s used to online death threats in the wake of her viral true-crime podcast, but she can’t help noticing an anonymous person who keeps asking her: Who will look for you when you’re the one who disappears?

Soon the threats escalate and Pip realizes that someone is following her in real life. 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.

Police refuse to act, so Pip has only one choice: find the suspect herself—or be the next victim. As the deadly game plays out, Pip discovers that everything in her small town is coming full circle… and if she doesn’t find the answers, this time she will be the one who disappears…

Our Review of As Good As Dead by Holly Jackson

The series is good. But this book wasn’t. There is one thing that pricks me over and over again. I had noticed it in the second book but now in the third book, it is fully spread and out in full display. Before I delve into that let me tell you that it has nothing to do with the book but something that is up for personal taste.

Ravi Singh has to be the perfect boyfriend. I mean he is probably in the Top 5 of the best book boyfriends, if I ever make a list. if you have been with the book from the beginning then you must have noticed how cute and absolutely charming the boy is. He is the best support system one can ask and it is from the second book, that I kept noticing how Ravi is the actual character who gets all the cane as an aftereffect of our female lead’s action.

In the second book, although I felt it might be just a plot thing, in the third book, it absolutely pissed me to the extreme level as to how ill-treated my favourite character is. He almost has the guest appearance and that too mostly cleaning up our FC’s messes.

The series is good but I think this has to be my least favourite book in the series. To begin with I felt that the third book is actually a sweeping of all that was leftover from the first two books. So don’t bother picking this book if you haven’t read the previous two. And if you have read the previous two books, you might be a bit disappointed as I felt there was no actual meat to it.

Of course, the series is the finale of everything that has been happening over the past two books but I wouldn’t say it is the best ending you could have possibly imagined for this series that began so fantastically.


In conclusion, I would say that I personally didn’t find myself satisfied and impressed with the series finale as I felt there could have been a better stronger purpose rather than just brushing up all the leftovers and doing a final clean-up and dragging along with an annoying FC.
