While helping the St. Louis Spook Squad investigate the brutal murder of a family, a wealthy businessman offers Animators, Inc. an exorbitant sum for Anita Blake to raise a zombie via human sacrifice. That’s where Anita draws the line, of course...but this would-be client can’t seem to take “no” for an answer. The mystery element in this second installment of the Anita Blake series is a lot more effective than its predecessor, Guilty Pleasures, though graphic description of crime scenes makes it considerably more gruesome. If you’ve got a strong stomach, though, you’ll definitely enjoy this volume just as much (perhaps even more so) than the first.
