Headline is thrilled to be publishing the sensational New York Times bestselling author Laurell K. Hamilton, the queen of vampire fiction.
The older the zombie, the bigger the death needed to raise it.
After a few centuries, the only death big enough is a human sacrifice. I know because I m an animator. My name is Anita Blake. Working for Animators, Inc. is just a job like selling insurance. But all the money in the world wasn t enough for me to take on the particular job Harold Gaynor was offering. Somebody else did, though a rogue animator. Now he s not just raising the dead... he s raising Hell. And it s up to me to stop it.

The Laughing Corpse is the second book in the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series. Anita has the ability to reanimate the dead as zombies and also works to solve murders. The name of this second book is also the name of a vampire comedy club.

I love Anita Blake, the series is brilliant and I’m so glad that Hamilton has written so many books. In this instalment, Anita is in a rush to find a zombie who just isn’t right. As well as this, Anita has to deal with many other threats and the normal issues of life. It’s a hard life for her, yet so entertaining for the readers.

This is a definite winner, with so many subplots and action.
