I have mixed feelings about LKH's work these past few years. She's gotten to write hardcover fiction and I'm sure gotten some of the money and prestige that goes along with it. But Anita Blake spun way out of control a few books back - it turned into porn first, plot second. But I loved the characters and am familiar with the world so much that I just kept on reading.

In this book, the porn takes a second place to plot FINALLY - however, because two giant orgy scenes conveniently are not in the book with Anita having "blacked out" during them makes me wonder if her editor is finally pulling on the reins? Anyway, I was glad I didn't have to slog through some more scenes where I couldn't even figure out the physics of the sex positions. Okay back to what was in the book - plot! Thanks a lot! I'm really glad of that.

Too much discussion of what is guy behavior and what is girl behavior, what is police behavior, etc. Don't analyze it, describe what they DO and move on!

I think LKH needs to start a new series or branch out with a different main char - she's developed a whole cast here, just take one out and see what happens with them. Like Edward for example!!
