Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling author Laurell K. Hamilton returns with another addictive adventure featuring vampire-hunting heroine Anita Blake, to thrill fans of Charlaine Harris and Anne Rice.
My name is Anita Blake and I have the highest kill count of any vampire executioner in the country. I´m a U.S. Marshal who can raise zombies with the best of them. But ever since master vampire Jean-Claude and I went public with our engagement, all I am to anyone and everyone is Jean-Claude´s fiancée.
It´s wreaking havoc with my reputation as a hard ass - to some extent. Luckily, in professional circles, I´m still the go-to expert for zombie issues. And right now, the FBI is having one hell of a zombie issue.
Someone is producing zombie porn. I´ve seen my share of freaky undead fetishes, so this shouldn´t bother me. But the women being victimised aren´t just mindless, rotting corpses. Their souls are trapped behind their eyes, signalling voodoo of the blackest kind.
It´s the sort of case that can leave a mark on a person. And my own soul may not survive unscathed . . .
