The Laughing Corpse - Laurell K. Hamilton ... rights, most people think that vampires are simply ordinary folk with fangs. Anita the vampire hunter has worse problems than vampires when she takes on a hell-raiser who wakes up more than just the dead. The older the zombie, the bigger the death needed to raise is. After a few centuries, the only death 'big enough' is a human sacrifice. I know, because I'm an animator. My name is Anita Blake. Working for Animators, Inc. is just a job - like selling insurance. But all the money in the world wasn't enough for me to take the particular job Harold Gaynor was offering. Somebody else did, though - a rogue animator.

While she is happy to sacrifice chickens or even a goat killing an innocent human she cannot and will not do no matter what the reward is. Meanwhile her expertise is called upon by the Police Department. When she arrives on the murder scene ... Read the complete review

The Laughing Corpse is a book by Laurell K Hamilton. I got my copy from Amazon for just under £5, which I guess is reasonable. I think I've gotten a bit too accustomed to buying them cheaply from the Book People of late. In fairness, the RRP is £7.99 and that's what they retail for instore at our local WH Smiths, so I can't really complain to have paid the price I did. This book is the second in the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series. Now don't be put off into thinking "oh no, not another vampire series" until you've read on just a little. The Anita Blake series is more than just about vampires, as Anita herself is actually an Animator - a person ... Read the complete review
