If book three, Circus of the Damned, is where the shifter community started getting a foothold into the Anitaverse, this book is where their prominence is solidified. Between Richard and the drama from some of the other shifters in the local community, Anita wouldn’t be able to escape dealing with them forever, which just helps add a layer of diversity to an already great series.
And while you deal with POS humans in the first few novels, I think this is the first one where plain Jane ol’ humans are officially shown as legit bad guys that you truly hope get taken down. It’s a great “the monsters aren’t always the bad guys” type of thing.

In the previous volume, Anita was having an early morning interview with Ruebens and Inger. Bert had scheduled it just after dawn. She still had blood under her fingernails from last night's zombie raisings.
Inger suggested that they just tell her what they want. Ruebens sat back down and said they want to find out the sleeping lair of the Master Vampire of the City. Anita stopped trying to help the men. Since she didn't know where Jean-Claude hid his body at night, Anita just told them the truth.
