Publisher Description

A brutal murder, a suspect in jail, and an execution planned—but what if the wrong person is about to be killed? 

When a fellow U.S. Marshal asks Anita Blake to fly to a tiny community in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula on an emergency consult, she knows time is running short. When she arrives, there is plenty of proof that a young wereleopard killed his uncle in the most gruesome and bloody way possible. As the mounting evidence points to him, a warrant of execution is already under way.

But something seems off about the murder, and Anita has been asked for her expert opinion on the crime scene. Despite escalating pressure from local cops and the family’s cries for justice for their dead patriarch, Anita quickly realizes that the evidence doesn’t quite add up.

Time is against Anita, as the tight-knit community is up in arms and its fear of supernaturals is growing. She races to uncover the truth and determine whether the Marshals have caught the killer or are about to execute an innocent man—all in the name of justice.

Good but the ending is rushed

I love her books.
This one was good but there were a couple of things I had issues with:
• it was way too descriptive. Too much that I needed to take a break.
• I missed the main men in Anita’s life. Thank god Edward we in it or it would have been totally boring.
• I wish the last chapter wasn’t so rushed. She is so descriptive through the whole book but the end.

These are the things that totally got me.
Now can we get to the wedding already.

Extremely disappointed!

I love this author. I mean I’ve re-read the books multiple times. I was so excited to see a new book in the series. This book was poorly written, full of repetitive rambling dialogue, and should’ve never been published. I don’t know what happened to her editor but please bring him or her back. I honestly can’t believe what I just read. I really do want my money back. Laurel Hamilton is one of the most interesting innovative authors I have read in a long time and I have enjoyed her books immensely. What happened? Seriously really really bad.

Every book is just as good as the first. Edge of my seat, nail biting, who me?!? Never.... *cough ok every time! I can not put the book down. This one I had a disagreement in my head about hunting with Olaf. But I am thrilled to read every book again, like it’s the first time.
