[/amazon_link]After I bit the Bullet and completed my review, I thought I was done.  But no.  She posted an excerpt from her next book, Hit List, on her blog, and I had to go read it.  (Had to, I tell you.  It’s a law, or something).

I read it, and I’m going to like this one, unless she jumps the shark after the first chapter.  LKH wisely moved Anita out of St. Louis for this book, this time to Tacoma, Washington, and hooked her back up with her old (platonic) pal Ted (who is like Dexter, but not as sexy, and does his killing on the up and up, now, has a license and everything).  There is a mystery to be solved, and obvious bad guys.  Moving the story out of St. Louis reduces some of the Mary Sue effect, so maybe Anita can even get hurt. 

The original link is now gone, but the book has been out for awhile. Give it a read and tell me what you think.
