In this fast-paced, fun, and sexy third entry in Frost's ( New York Times best-selling "Night Huntress" series—following One Foot in the Grave (2008), also available from Blackstone Audio and narrated by Tavia Gilbert (—half-vampire Cat Crawfield is happily involved with her undead lover, Bones, when her identity is uncovered by some pretty scary bloodsuckers. After a woman from Bones's past appears seeking vengeance, Cat solicits help from characters who appeared in the previous two titles, though there is enough detail to ensure that listeners new to the series will not be confused. Gilbert is a strong reader; her pacing and inflections are especially good. Her only weakness is the not-so-convincing accent she gives to Bones. For fans of Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse series and Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter novels.—B. Allison Gray, Santa Barbara P.L., Goleta Branch, CA
