Anita Blake goes to New Mexico to repay the favor she owes Edward for killing his back-up. Lots of guns, hand to hand, two vicious serial killers, and the usual Blake wise-cracking. Readers learn more about Edward and his desire for a family, but the "boys" (Richard and Jean-Claude) are not present.
