This latest volume in Hamilton's bestselling Anita Blake series is contrived and convoluted. The bounds of her worldbuilding are stretched to their very limits, and what little plot there is doesn't get going until nearly halfway through the book. Fans of the series may derive some enjoyment from this volume, but casual readers won't.
Jason, Jean-Claude's pomme de sang and Anita's friend, has a problem: his estranged father is dying and his mother has begged him to come see him -- with a girlfriend, so his father will believe that Jason is straight. Anita agrees to the charade, but when they arrive in Jason's hometown, they discover that his distant cousin and son of the governor, Keith Summerland, is getting married, with all the accompanying media feeding frenzy.
And on top of these complications
