The Laughing Corpse [Hamilton]

Book: The Laughing Corpse [Anita Blake book #2]
Author: Laurel K. Hamilton

Review: When an old man offers Anita a million dollars to raise an old corpse, she turns down the job knowing it would require human sacrifice. But when a series of brutal murders start happening, she realizes someone else has already attempted (and botched) the job. Anita hunts down the murderer (who is a zombie on the loose) while battling a powerful voodoo priestess.

This was a quick, enjoyable read. Once again, the mystery was easy to figure out but the humor and fast action still made this book fun. The more I read about Anita, the more I like her. Hey, who doesn't like someone who secretly collects penguins? (I'm a fellow penguin lover, so Anita and I are kindred spirits! :) )

Grade: B
