I had watched the first seasons of the TV series a few months ago and started reading the books shortly after. I am only on the third book in the series, having to wait my turn patiently at the library...
I was really surprised to be able to check out this particular book right away. "A Touch of Dead" is wonderful, my only complaint would be that it wasn't long enough! It has five short stories, all fitting in different time periods in the regular novels.
