The Laughing Corpse is Laurell K Hamilton’s second outing into the supernatural side of life in St Louis. But she knows that "the older the zombie, the bigger the death needed to raise it". Only a human sacrifice is "big" enough to raise this old soul, and Anita's no murderer.

The two in the bathtub were ruined. Maybe spot remover? The smell was thick and seemed permanent. I put an emergency message on my cleaning service’s answering machine. Didn’t want to frighten them off. I packed an overnight bag. Two changes of clothes and one penguin with his tummy freshly scrubbed, Harold Gaynor’s file, and I was set. I also packed both guns: the Firestar in its inner pants holster; the Browning under my arm. A windbreaker hid the Browning from view. I had extra ammo in the jacket pockets. Hamilton is the bestselling author of the acclaimed Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, Novels. She lives near St Louis with her husband, her daughter, two dogs and an ever-fluctuating number of fish.

“Stupidity isn’t punishable by death. If it was, there would be a hell of a population drop.” There’s no particular reason I chose this quote from the book to start out this review other than I thought it was funny. So sue me.

This book starts only a few weeks after the first book, Guilty Pleasures, ended.

Anita Blake begins by meeting a potential new client in need of her animator skills. Too bad this client is a murderous millionaire who doesn’t care who gets hurt, as long as his zombie is raised. As if that isn’t bad enough, she is also working a case with the local police, trying to figure out what type of creature is ripping apart families…literally. And one of her suspects? Just the most powerful voodoo priestess in all of North America, who just so happens to want Anita to join her in her…less than savory enterprises, and is willing to make her do so by any means necessary. And if that wasn’t enough problems, she also happens to be oh so close to being the new Master of the City’s human servant. Very much unwillingly.

Murder, mayhem, voodoo, and sexy vampires. What more could a girl ask for? Some peace and quiet, if you ask Anita.

I really enjoyed this book, easily as much as the first in this series. Anita is still a tough badass, and there are still so many great, rich characters, that you don’t really get bored at any point in this story, especially with poor Anita having problem after problem thrown at her.

Anita also finds out that she is much more powerful in regards to being an animator than expected, and in a most gruesome way too. It makes you excited to see where just that alone can lead this series. The possibilities are endless.

Something else that I like about these books, other than the great writing and non-stop (yet realistic) action throughout the story, is that, while not necessarily a stand-alone, these books don’t end on a cliffhanger either. Yes, they leave you with knowing that there is more story after the book, that if you want to see what else Anita ends up going through, reading the next in the series is advised. But they end very succinctly, so it makes it a bit more bearable (mostly, haha) to wait a year or two for the next book. Though I still strongly urge you to read this series in order. A lot of things, especially further on (at the time of this writing, I’ve read up to book 24 in the series) won’t make sense if you hadn’t read the previous books. They’re worth it. Don’t skimp!

Overall, I still would recommend this book and series. It covers a lot of bases, such as mystery, crime, paranormal, and fantasy genres, all in one book. It caters to many, which is one of the many things that I think makes them so enjoyable. They don’t try to fit into only one box, so you can enjoy many different flavors at once.
I am rereading this series for the 5th time. Honestly it is one of my favorite. I have Chronic pain and I use books to "zone out" at times when the pain is so bad. I live the fact that this young beautiful woman is such a badass in fighting but still holds on to her faith. In this book she is forced to participate in human sacrifice. Even under a spell is is able to do it her way. Goodbye bad guys. She faces who and what she really is. Her powers are increasing and she is scared but she will deal with it. She realizes she is a necromancer. This book is well written and very good read. One advice once you start reading this series you will be hooked. They are now 25 books in. Still love them. Laurel Hamilton is wonderful and she is my new favorite author
When my children came of age and left home I found a mysterious book among the ruin and disaster. The only book in my extensive collection that did not carry it's cover anymore. I had no idea what it was, but as I needed something to read that day, and i wanted to figure out what this mystery book was, I began with chapter 1. Who is Anita Blake? Is this the first book of a series? Or one from the middle of the series? And why the hell is there a vampire strip club? I almost did not continue, but I am so glad I did! That was Guilty Pleasures. It was so good in fact I read it in one day, which led to the purchase of The Laughing Corpse. Terrific! I love how Ms. Hamilton writes in a way that most of speak on a daily basis, but throws in some big words now and then to show there is more than meets the eye. I love how she teases us with things to come and Anita's internal monologues and wars with the different sides of her personality! And even though each book clearly ends, no cliff hangers yet, you simply cannot wait to get the next one! I am officially a fan and searching for the "friend" that told me years ago not to read Ms. Hamilton's books because they were romance novels so I can slap them in the back of the head!
A beautiful blend of supernatural, detective work, a budding romance, balance of power and one of the toughest women at the center of it all. I never (ever) pay 7.99 for a kindle book, but this one is worth every penny. I'm downloading the third book as I write this review. Laurell Hamilton has captured my interest in a way nothing has since the Sookie Sackhouse books did (long before they were made into a TV show.) This story is an incredible journey, and I'm silently cheering on the master of the city. He's starting to get a clue about how to earn a romance instead of forcing a servant. This series is a must read!
Zombies, Voodoo, thugs, police investigations and Anita is now tied to Jean-Claude, the new Master of the City of St Louis, whether she wants to recognize that relationship or not. There’s plenty of action and horror as Anita refuses requests from 2 bad guys. The first wants her to raise a zombie so old that she’d need to do a human sacrifice to have enough energy to do so, and won’t take no for an answer. The other is the area’s zombie queen who has found a way to do something horrible to make money and wants Anita to join her in her endeavor.

There are elements of this story that I absolutely love, more world and character building, moral issues and Anita once again proves just how much of a kick butt heroine she is. We also see a somewhat vulnerable side, but I have to say it’s one of the earlier books that I’ve reread the least, mostly from a horror perspective. I’m also somewhat disappointed in Jean-Claude’s actions in helping Anita when she asks, but she refuses to bend at all for him. It does get explained much later in the series, but it’s difficult to understand for many books just why Jean-Claude is considered to be as powerful as gets indicated.
