featuring her vampire-hunting heroine Anita Blake. When Anita Blake meets
with prospective client Tony Bennington, who is desperate to have her
reanimate his recently deceased wife, she is full of sympathy for his loss.
Anita knows something about love, and she knows everything there is to know
about loss. But what she also knows, though Tony Bennington seems unwilling
to be convinced, is that the thing she can do as a necromancer isn't the
miracle he thinks he needs. The creature that Anita could coerce to step
out of the late Mrs. Bennington's grave would not be the lovely Mrs.
Bennington. Not really. And not for long.
