⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When a fellow U.S. Marshal asks Anita Blake to fly to a tiny community in Michigan's Upper Peninsula on an emergency consult, she knows time is running short. When she arrives, there is plenty of proof that a young wereleopard killed his uncle in the most gruesome and bloody way possible. As the mounting evidence points to him, a warrant of execution is already under way.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

But something seems off about the murder, and Anita has been asked for her expert opinion on the crime scene. Despite the escalating pressure from local cops and the family’s cries for justice for their dead patriarch, Anita quickly realizes that the evidence doesn't quite add up.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Time is against Anita, as the tight-knit community is up in arms and fear against supernaturals is growing. She races to uncover the truth and determine whether the Marshals have caught the killer or are about to execute an innocent man—all in the name of justice.

    Sucker Punch Reviews

  • Lorena

    This novel represents a bold move by Laurell K. Hamilton, for in its pages, you will find absolutely nothing to appeal to any remaining fans of the series. Are you still reading them for the over-the-...

    How has Anita's vagina not fallen out and killed her by now?...

    I…don’t know what to do with this.I’d stopped reading LKH a few years ago. At the time I stopped, the books felt like 20% plot and 80% icky sticky orgies. I was bored.But when I was offered a ch...

    Happiness! Anyone who has kept this series knows they can expect a certain amount of craziness of one kind or another. If you've kept up with these books, you know that the first ten-ish books were cl...

  • Dianne

    3.5 stars rounded up.What can I say but that I liked this book, but that I still had issues with it? The mystery was clever and twisty with your ideas of the 'who-dun-it' changing with each chapter. I...

    This is a difficult rating and review because, while I liked this one much better than previous installments, many of the same LKH brand annoyances are accounted for. Lengthy physical descriptions? Ch...

    I want more of Jean-Claude and Anita ONLY. No Nathaniel no Micah no Nicki. Please. And if there should be sex, just Jean-Claude and Anita ONLY AGAIN....
