Publisher's Summary

There are a lot of monsters in Anita Blake's life. And some of them are human. One such individual is the man she calls Edward, a bounty hunter who specializes in the preternatural. He calls her to help him hunt down the greatest evil she has ever encountered - something that kills and maims and vanishes into the night. Something Anita will have to face alone.

Critic Reviews

"Anita's usual supporting cast is missing, and she's taking time out from her complex love life, but there's plenty of bloody action, vampires, werewolves, and Aztec ritual. Plus a lot more about Edward. Fans will find this installment similar to the earlier books in the series, particularly The Laughing Corpse." (Amazon.com review)
"[A] monstrously entertaining read." (Publishers Weekly)

Not the best abridgment.

I love this series. I own all of the books and have read them multiple times. I like this narrator. But, the abridgment is painful. They left out a lot of the details that make later books and relationships make sense. I wouldn't recommend it as your only exposure to the book. I hope an unabridged version comes out soon.

Abridged?? Really?

I've been enjoying this series since book 1 - all unabridged. Why suddenly is book 9 only offered in abridged?? Especially considering that the unabridged version is available via the iTunes store, really - this speaks volumes to pure greed...
