5.0 out of 5 stars That voodoo you do-do, 16 Sep 2009
This review is from: The Laughing Corpse (Anita Blake Vampire Hunter) (Paperback)
Anita Blake is an Animator. Anita and co. raise the dead to settle will disputes and the like, for a reasonable fee. On the side Anita is a vampire hunter -- she's been nicknamed 'the Executioner' and (obviously) isn't too keen on vampires. The new master of the city is very interested in her, much to Anita's chagrin, and is keen to make her his human servant.

Anita is all set to solve another case while she's on retainer to the police. Someone or something managed to consume a number of victims in one place... nice. Anita being the freak expert is called in to offer her expertise. The scenes are gory (as usual) and there was some great stuff with her and her police friends. There are also a few other plot threads that all converge one another pretty well. This books arc took a while for me to get into, but around halfway through I ended up really enjoying it.

The Laughing Corpse wasn't quite as good as the first book, as it lacked the emotional bitter sweetness that pervaded Guilty Pleasures. Many of the characters introduced in the previous book are back here too, except, disappointingly, Edward although I'm not sure how he would have fitted in here anyway.

Anita continues to be tough minded and sympathetic to those that deserve it. We learn a little more about her powers and the root of what Animators can do -- I thought Dominga wasn't the most interesting of antagonists but she served her purpose well.
