The early Anita Blake novels find new life in trade paperback-as perfect collectibles for long-time fans or as great ways for new readers to sink their teeth into the series.

In The Laughing Corpse , a creature from beyond the grave is tearing a swath of murder through St. Louis. And Anita will learn that there are some secrets better left buried-and some people better off dead...

Though I'm not passionate about the series, nor on-board with all the decisions Hamilton made, I'm still interested. I like that there are a lot of grey areas with her characters. I think I'd enjoy these more if everything didn't wrap up so neatly at the end.

This book is much darker than the first, Anita loses heroes, finds true evil, and fights monsters that exist only in your worst nightmares. The book is darker than the graphic novel version... because there is no way to draw a picture of a murdered child... but the description is worth a thousand sad pictures. The world in these novels is a better place with Anita keeping the monsters at bay.

The thought that I had actually spent money on anything pink was more than I could bear.
