Malcolm, head of the vampire Church of Eternal Life, is no particular friend to Anita Blake. So when he shows up in her office, to ask for her help against creatures so feared that no vampire will willingly speak their name, Anita is surprised. But she believes him. Malcolm may not be a Master of the City, but he's an old and powerful vampire, a leader of men, and he does not easily ask for help - especially from Anita and Jean-Claude, whose power Malcolm considers corrupt. That was the first warning of The Harlequin.

The second warning is presented like a gift, left where she'd be sure to find it, with Anita printed on the box. Inside, carefully wrapped in folds of pristine tissue paper, is a white mask, utterly plain. The fact that it's white, Jean-Claude tells her, is the good news. White means they are only being watched.

The flow of power that connects Anita Blake with Jean-Claude, vampire Master of the City, and with Richard, Ulfric of the werewolves, has been growing and changing, increasing exponentially. Their power seems to have attracted attention, and it's a kind of attention no one would desire. Jean-Claude and Richard need to be strong allies now. Nathaniel and Micah need to give all their love and aid. And Anita will need to call on Edward, whose utterly human ruthlessness in her defense makes him the right man for the job.

Anita Blake has the authority to pass judgment on vampires. The Harlequin have the authority to pass judgment on her. It is forbidden to speak of The Harlequin unless you've been contacted.

And to be contacted by The Harlequin is to be under sentence of death. Download and start listening now!

    " This book had a little more of a plot than the previous two, but it was still fairly thin and underdeveloped. There were no random sex scenes. Everything sexual fit with the context of the story, which is a plus from previous books. Again there was a lot of talking about what to do without really doing it. I'm curious to know how things are going to end (if Hamilton ever makes an ending to this mess) so I may continue reading the series despite disliking the recent volumes. "

    " I have made it to the 15th Anita Blake novel. I think that there is something addicting in these books, because i'm never quite sure why i keep reading them. The first 3/4 of the book moved VEEERRRYYY SLLLOOWWWWLLYYY just like they always do. it's like she's a writer for Lost. There is, however, less sex than normal in this book. The Anita Blake books have of late dissolved into a giant, booklong orgy, with too many descriptions of clothes, and lots of retelling introductions and backstory of what we already know stuck in for good measure. I think she got the message that she was going overboard. when there's more sex than 50 shades of grey, you need to rein it in. but the overly descriptive clothes and backstory intros of everyone every two seconds was still here. plus lots and lots of talking. i don't like anita much, because she is so hypocritical. and richard is his usual annoying self. they're so alike. still, i liked this book because things did happen (they don't always in these books) and the last quarter was pretty good. How does Hamilton keep track of all the powers and rules and things she makes up each time? All in all, not the best ever, but pretty good, and if you've been skipping ahead to try and find a book that isn't just a giant porn, then try this one. Not to mention, we get to see how Edward & his family are doing. "

    " Richard really up-set me in this one, but at least he started to be honest with himself and face his issues. "
