The sensational new novel from the New York Times bestselling author featuring her
vampire-hunting heroine Anita Blake.
Once you tell someone certain things, like, say, you got mailed a human head in a box,
they tend to think you're crazy. Anita Blake's reputation has taken some hits. Not on the
work front, where she has the highest kill count of all the legal vampire executioners in the
country, but on the personal front. No one seems to trust a woman who sleeps with the
monsters. Still, when a vampire serial killer sends her a head from Las Vegas, Anita has to
warn Sin City's local authorities what they're dealing with. Only it's worse than she thought.
Several officers and one executioner have been slain -- paranormal style...
Anita heads to Las Vegas, where she's joined by three other federal marshals, including the
ruthless Edward hiding behind his mild-mannered persona. It's a good thing Edward always
has her back, because, when she gets close to the bodies, Anita senses "tiger" too strongly
to ignore it. The were-tigers are very powerful in Las Vegas, which means the odds of her
rubbing someone important the wrong way just got a lot higher...
