Vampire hunter Anita Blake is called on to raise the dead-while trying to suppress her ever-growing feelings for a certain wereleopard.
Hamilton (Incubus Dreams) delivers a highly palatable portion of what makes her series heroine, federal marshal and vampire-hunter Anita Blake, a bestseller: equal portions hot sex and supernatural crime fighting with a dollop of old-fashioned male-female melodrama served up in a world where new were-animals have their own crisis hotline. Filling in for a colleague, Anita travels to Philadelphia to reanimate a deceased federal witness, accompanied by Micah, her wereleopard lover. The jaunt serves as a chance for them to share some rare one-on-one time without any of her five other lovers around which Anita fears is not necessarily a good thing. Even worse, since her magic energy has grown unexpectedly strong, she suspects this won't be your run-of-th e-mill reincarnation. A good entry point for the uninitiated, this offering provides further insight into both characters and their universe. A bonus excerpt will whet fans' appetites for the 13th full-length novel in the series, Danse Macabre, coming this June.

Great story. Glad that the raunchy sex was toned down and the story focused more on Anita doing her job as a Marshal. I really enjoyed the book, but I found it kind of short. I can't believe a read it in one and a half day. I wanted so much more. That's what Anita Blake does to me. Love it!!
This book is half the length of every other one in the series so far but still the same price!!!
This isn't a book. It's a short story. The author should be ashamed of herself.
$7.99 for a less-than-300-word novella is ridiculous. I enjoyed the story, but would not have bought it for that price had I realized how short it was.
