Publisher Comments:

Anita Blake has the highest kill count of any vampire executioner in the country. Shes a U.S. Marshal who can raise zombies with the best of them. But ever since she and master vampire Jean-Claude went public with their engagement, all she is to anyone and everyone is Jean-Claudes fiancée.

Its wreaking havoc with her reputation as a hard ass—to some extent. Luckily, in professional circles, shes 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. Anita has seen her share of freaky undead fetishes, so this shouldnt bother her. But the women being victimized arent just mindless, rotting corpses. Their souls are trapped behind their eyes, signaling voodoo of the blackest kind.

Its the sort of case that can leave a mark on a person. And Anitas own soul may not survive unscathed . . .

Review:

"Hamilton's 17th Anita Blake novel draws the vampire hunter into a game of cat-and-mouse with a particularly monstrous vampire named Vittorio. Aided by sadistic serial killer Otto Jefferies, convenient sociopath Edward Kemper and fanged escorts handpicked by her lover Jean-Claude, U.S. marshal Anita offers her services to Las Vegas, now under siege from Vittorio's army of enthralled preternatural beings. Manipulated by the cunning Vittorio and occasionally misled by coincidental events, Anita employs her insight into Vittorio's condition and weaponized libido as the decisive weapons in this struggle. The book is largely concerned with the melodramatic conflict between hunter and hunter and Blake's soap-operatic love life, but Hamilton does manage some genuinely moving passages, particularly those describing the terror of innocent vampires caught up in the arbitrary and draconian U.S. legal system. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

When a vampire serial killer sends Anita Blake a grisly souvenir from Las Vegas, she has to warn Sin City's authorities what they're dealing with. Only it's worse than she thinks, in the latest work in the bestselling Vampire Hunter series.

Synopsis:

Unabridged CDs ? 15 CDs, 19 hours

Anita Blake heads to Las Vegas for a trip that?s all business, no pleasure. In Skin Trade, she partners again with Edward to find the source of eleven slain Sin City officials, and a host of weretigers.

Synopsis:

Some zombies are raised. Others must be put down. Just ask Anita Blake.

 

Before now, she would have considered them merely off-putting, never dangerous. Before now, she had never heard of any of them causing human beings to perish in agony. But thats all changed.

 

Micahs estranged father lies dying, rotting away inside from some strange ailment that has his doctors whispering about “zombie disease.”

 

Anita makes her living off of zombies—but these arent the kind she knows so well. These creatures hunt in daylight, and are as fast and strong as vampires. If they bite you, you become just like them. And round and round it goes…

 

Where will it stop?

Even Anita Blake doesnt know.
