"You can"t trust anyone who sleeps with monsters."
That"s what I"ve always said. That"s what I"ve always believed. But now I"m the one sharing a bed with the Master Vampire of the City.
Me, Anita Blake. The woman the vampires call the Executioner. From part of the solution, I"ve become part of the problem. So it hits close to home when an arsonist begins to target vampire-owned businesses all over town – and arsonist who seems to want to destroy more than just property. It"s the monsters who are in danger now.
And it"s up to the Executioner to save them from the inferno...
Pete, on the other end of the phone, sounded frantic. "The city is going nuts. So far we"ve managed to contain the fires to just a few buildings, but if the crazies keep it up, it"s going to get out of hand. There"s no telling how much of the city would go up.
"We need to know who"s behind this," I said.
"Yes, we do," Pete Said. "Get here as soon as you can." He sounded so sure I could help. I wished I was as certain. I sure I could do much in broad daylight. I"d been told once that the only reason I couldn"t raise the dead at high noon was that I thought I couldn"t. I was about to put it to the test.
