The sensational new novel from the New York Times bestselling author featuring her vampire-hunting heroine Anita Blake.
When Anita Blake meets with prospective client Tony Bennington, who is desperate to have her reanimate his recently deceased wife, she is full of sympathy for his loss. Anita knows something about love, and she knows everything there is to know about loss. But what she also knows, though Tony Bennington seems unwilling to be convinced, is that the thing she can do as a necromancer isn t the miracle he thinks he needs. The creature that Anita could coerce to step out of the late Mrs. Bennington s grave would not be the lovely Mrs. Bennington. Not really. And not for long.


Skin Trade is the eighteenth book in the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series. It is also the shortest of all of the Vampire Hunter Books at just under two hundred pages.

Some people don’t take no for an answer. And Anita learns this the hard way in Flirt. When a grieving husband asks for his wife to be raised from the dead, Anita just can’t and won’t do it for various reasons I won’t go into here. The husband takes things a step to far trying to force Anita into doing what he wants. Unfortunately for him, Anita has her own secrets and he learns that sometimes no means no.
