Publisher's Summary

When a vampire serial killer sends Anita Blake a grisly souvenir from Las Vegas, she has to warn Sin City's local authorities what they're dealing with. Only it's worse than she thought. Ten officers and one executioner have been slain - paranormal style.Anita heads to Vegas, where's she's joined by three other federal marshals, including the ruthless Edward. It's a good thing he always has her back, because when she gets close to the bodies, Anita senses "tiger" too strongly to ignore it. The weretigers are very powerful in Las Vegas, which means the odds of her rubbing someone important the wrong way just got a lot higher.

#1 Best Narrator, Pure disappointment In L.K.H.

First, Laurell K. Hamilton is a one of kind, incredible writer. Her ability to bring modern day America into all that is supernatural and make the meshing feel normal, and believable, like a "must see" police action drama/thriller, big screen movie or number one television series, shows much more than raw talent and imagination. Hamilton's first Nine (9) books in audio format are nothing short of amazing. Presently there are twenty (20) L.K.H. "Anita Blake,Vampire Hunter Series" installments.
I am a disabled Marine Veteran from the second year into our war with Iraq. Having lost an arm to the shoulder and most of one leg, it is pretty much impossible to read a regular book. My favorite, flirty nurse set me up with and the first "Anita Blake", L.K.H. audio book, "Guilty Pleasures".
Less than ten minutes into the book on my computer and it was like watching a great movie that lived up to all the hype. The Narrator, Kimberly Alexis, is nothing short of CREATIVE GENIUS. How does a person describe a symphony in mere words. Kimberly Alexis actually channels written words into living, breathing works of a Master Painter. The timing and cadence as she reads can bring up a soft breeze, filled with scents and sounds. Alexis changes voices with fluidity of quick silver or bending light. Every character's voice tells the listener all they need to know about their fictional lives, politics, religion, style and every subtle or overt mood. Kimberly Alexis does many different men, women and a host of monsters in all their confidence, foolish bravery, loyalty, friendship, love and their underlying needs, intentions, fears, hatred, bigotry and naked, human shame.
When the action comes, it hits hard and fast. Alexis turns that cool breeze into a firestorm! Her intensity ebbs and flows like the thrusts and parries of a bloody sword fight to the death. Makes me sweat,curse & worry.
Books #1- #9 are amazing. The next 11books are mainly bad XXX porn. L.K.H. ruins "Anita".

Where's Cynthia?!!!

I miss Cynthia Holloway!

This narrator sucks, her Jean Claude is HORRIBLE!!! Although the little bit if J.C. we did get, he was pissed and I liked that. Glad to know he cares. Please bring Cynthia back for the next one. I'm giving this one 3 stars because I enjoyed the change of scenery and the new men. I did not miss Anita's whining regulars(i.e. Requiem).
