Mystery & Suspense • 30 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Anita Blake, vampire hunter, is back. In this adventure, a vampire serial killer is murdering strippers, and Anita is called in to assist police with the investigation. As Anita juggles lovers and relationships, frequent coupling refuels her "power triumvirates," which are in need of constant attention. Cynthia Holloway's performance captures an insouciant, wisecracking Anita, whose libido is her principal motivation. However, Holloway uses the same sassy bad-girl tones that work well in early scenes for the overly long, steamy sex scenes, and that "attitude" misses the mark. Laurell K. Hamilton's twelfth visit to the vampiric/lycanthropic wilds of St.Louis is ponderous to the point of tedious, and desperately in need of a good edit. Even so, Hamilton's fans will clamor for more.
