The Laughing Corpse by Laurell Kaye Hamilton
The Laughing Corpse continues the adventures of Anita Blake, as she attempts to solve a particularly grisly set of murders, while simultaneously avoiding two potential threats to her life from people interested in using her talents as a zombie animator. Meanwhile, Anita continues to attempt to come to grips with her powers and her relationship with Jean-Claude, the vampire master of St. Louis and Anita's would be lover/master. As with its predecessor, Guilty Pleasures, The Laughing Corpse blends elements of supernatural and detective fiction, specifically police procedural and hardboiled fiction in this novel.
Within the novel, "The Laughing Corpse" is the name of a vampire comedy club operated by Jean-Claude, one of the main characters. Hamilton employed the practice of titling the novels after a location within each novel for most of the books in the series.
