From Rob Thomas, the creator of the television series and movie phenomenon Veronica Mars, comes the first book in a thrilling mystery series that picks up where the feature film left off.
Ten years after graduating from high school in Neptune, California, Veronica Mars is back in the land of sun, sand, crime, and corruption. She’s traded in her law degree for her old private investigating license, struggling to keep Mars Investigations afloat on the scant cash earned by catching cheating spouses until she can score her first big case. Now it’s spring break, and college students descend on Neptune, transforming the beaches and boardwalks into a frenzied, week-long rave. When a girl disappears from a party, Veronica is called in to investigate.
But this is no simple missing person’s case; the house the girl vanished from belongs to a man with serious criminal ties, and soon Veronica is plunged into a dangerous underworld of drugs and organized crime. And when a major break in the investigation has a shocking connection to Veronica’s past, the case hits closer to home than she ever imagined.

Over Christmas 2005 I started watching a show Veronica Mars with my cousin. We were hooked ever since. That show ending the following year was devastating. Then last year they announced the kickstarter for the movie. And the movie was amazing. Yes it was for the fans, but hey we needed it. Ever...
Have you ever had a relationship that you knew wasn’t working, couldn’t work, would never work? But you just couldn’t help yourself, because the way it didn’t work was so damn good? So this is where my Two-Week Throwback ends. 64 episodes, a movie and now a book series. Which is funny because I read...
More than the Veronica Mars movie (which I gladly helped fund via Kickstarter), this book's mystery made me nostalgic for the TV show. Not because it was lacking but because it was so reminiscent of an episode of the show, with the space of a novel. The difference here is that Veronica is officially...
