Lisa Black spent the happiest five years of her life in a morgue. Strange, perhaps, but true.

I've been researching the housing bust and the financial crisis, so this is one of many books I've read. I liked it, it didn't drag too much and I didn't mind the personal story as much as other people apparently did.
