Laurell K Hamilton is an American author, best known for two series of fantasy novels, which centre on Anita Blake, a vampire killer and animator of the dead, and Meredith Gentry, a faerie princess and private investigator. The early novels focus predominantly on crime-solving and action; the later ones on Anita's personal and sexual relationships and powers. Born in Arkansas in 1963, Laurell has written eight Merry Gentry novels and 20 Anita Blake novels, with the latest due out in June 2011, as well as a range of other novels and an Anita Blake Marvel Comic series. The Lunatic Cafe is the fourth in the Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series of horror and mystery novels. The novel opens with Anita interviewing a potential client. George Smitz tells Anita that his wife, Peggy, has disappeared. Anita explains that she is not trained as an investigator, and suggests that George contact the police, but he will not. Peggy is a werewolf, and George is afraid to contact the police because she owns and operates a butcher shop, and if her condition were made public, she would lose her customers. Anita ultimately refers to Ronnie, who agrees to look into it. That night, Anita meets Richard Zeeman for a date at a performance of Guys and Dolls. Anita is charmed that Richard likes musicals, but off-put when she notices him watching theatre patrons as if the were prey… You can listen online to free English audiobook “The Lunatic Cafe” by Laurell K.
