The sensational new novel from the New York Times bestselling author featuring her vampire-hunting heroine Anita BlakeOnce you tell someone certain things, like, say, you got mailed a human head in a box, they tend to think you’re crazy.

No one seems to trust a woman who sleeps with the monsters. Still, when a vampire serial killer sends her a head from Las Vegas, Anita has to warn Sin City’s local authorities what they’re dealing with. Only it’s worse than she thought. Several officers and one executioner have been slain – paranormal style...

'Shut up...And can take the offer so we can all sleep.'The Real Plot Summary:Anita Sue: I am SO much tougher and better at this than those wimpy women in my office, who are clutching their pearls in the other room and sobbing into the Manly Men's chests! I can stare at this head in a box and be TOUG...
Better than some of the other stories that have turned up recently in this series, this, though, has several layers of What and Why going on. Anita turns up in work (shocker!) to find a head delivered to her. The head is that of a police officer in Las Vegas. She knows who it is and goes to Las V...
I don't even want to know. Some weird trible sex?
Even though the beginning's complete 180 for Haven caught me off guard (writer's prerogative or failure to keep track of story thread?), I gratefully let this book wipe away some of the bad taste from the previous lackluster books.
