The best book on dependent origination is one that doesn't think that it represents the one and only way in which dependent origination can and should be interpreted. Sorry if that's not an actual book per se, but a good criteria by which to take a foray into the post-sutta investigations of dependent origination.
A good online source that gives a couple of interpretations is...Dependent Origination by P. A. Payuttohttp://www.buddhanet.net/cmdsg/coarise.htm
