RE: Order of Series Books
Since it's a mystery series, you can check out www.stopyourekillingme.com The site may or may not be ending as the site founder needs to end the work for her health. However, others may be taking it over.
Another site that would be helpful is www.booksnbytes.com They have sci-fi as well as mystery authors. Lots of info and a little harder to navigate, but they should have the info as well.
