Review: The Laughing Corpse by Laurell K. Hamilton


Paranormal murder mysteries continue with Anita Blake. Someone or something is leaving bits of bodies behind, but very few clues to follow. Anita must help the police get in touch with a voodoo priestess, avoid killer zombies, and avoid a millionaire's attempts for paying her for a raising involving a human sacrifice. As if all that is not one large mess of trouble she has a run in with Jean Claude at The Laughing Corpse that may just leave her with more questions than answers and tempt her farther into his world.

I found this follow up to Guilty Pleasures to be fascinatingly, disturbing just like the first and loved it from beginning to end! Anita's strong sense of self is wonderful and her ability to take care of herself and just plan scare the guys is wonderful! Jean Claude's character begins to change a little bit from the previous book, but he is still a guy I can't wait to find out more and more about in books to come. So, you will definitely be seeing more of the Anita Blake series on this blog. It is one of my favorites!

Sadly so far this is it, but I'm working on it. I started w/ her Merry Gentry Series and put this off for some reason.

Let me know when you get to number 7 I think. (So far I've read to Blue Moon). I really liked the first six, but then they kind of took a dive off the deep end...

I *love* Anita Blake books. I loved all of them up to books 10 but then had a break. I'm hosting The Anita Blake Challenge 2010 so I will be re-reading them and moving on too. I'm glad you are enjoying the series so far! :)
