Anita Blake's biggest battle begins when Malcolm Blake, the founder of The Church of Eternal Life appears at her office. Since he hates her and her vampire lover Jean-Claude, she is surprised to find him afraid and wanting her to relay a message to the Master of St. Louis. Something is off in his tone that even her powers can only sense but not understand. He refuses to divulge any details and when she tells Jean-Claude about his message and behavior, he closes down and tells her he is forbidden by vampire law to talk about it. It looks as if she will never know what vampires fear.

From official release/information:

Book Description: Anita Blake is about to face the challenge of her life. Into her world-a world already overflowing with power-have come creatures so feared that powerful, centuries-old vampires refuse to mention their names. 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.

Long-time rivals for Anita's affections, Jean-Claude, Master Vampire of the City, and Richard, alpha-werewolf, will need to become allies. Shapeshifters Nathaniel and Micah will have to step up their support. And then there's Edward. In this situation, Anita knows that she needs to call the one man who has always been there for her...
