Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, is not quite as human as she once was. Consumed by both the lusts of the vampire and the primal hungers of the wereleopards, her desires must be sated. But it is Jean- Claude, the Master Vampire, who needs her now. When she is asked to reanimate the body of a long-dead corpse, it seems like just another case to Anita. What she will soon discover is that the corpse may hold the secret to an ancient crime that not everyone wants to be remembered...
In the pulse-pounding new story of suspense and sensuality, Anita will need to muster all the dark forces of her passion if she is to save the ones she loves the most.
