A review of Laurell K. Hamilton’s ‘Bloody Bones’ chapter six


Bayard has gotten a Jeep, and Anita and Lawrence are bouncing along to the crime scene.

My outfit, on the other hand, might raise a few eyebrows. There aren’t many female cops out in the boonies. And fewer who wear short red skirts. I was beginning to really regret my choice of clothes. Insecure: who, me?

Oh, finally realised that wearing a red mini skirt is not acceptable in a professional situation? Ugh.

Larry is really excited about getting to see a real gen-u-ine murder scene and murdered person because he’s apparently working on becoming a serial killer in his spare time. Anita reprimands him as he is not actually a member of RPIT and if he bounces along like Sherlock’s Moriarty on cocaine the police may – and I stress the may – get suspicious.

“I’ve never actually seen a freshly dead body before.”

“You raise the dead for a living, Larry. You see corpses all the time.”

“It’s not the same thing, Anita.” He sounded grumpy.

Can someone intervene and stop all the characters sounding like complete and total psychopaths?

Anita then takes the time to say that she’s not always good around dead bodies either. Um, what inspired you to say that? He didn’t say he was uncomfortable around dead bodies. The problem is that he’s expressing an unnatural desire to see dead bodies. That’s what you should be addressing.

Larry just starts giggling.

Okay, Lawrence is very much a serious problem waiting to happen.

  1. You don’t understand! If she didn’t wear a mini skirt, her tiny tiny legs would be hidden from the world, and everyone would wonder how she was walking!
    I have to quote this, so that you wont think that I’ve just taken a cartload of drugs. It’s from her blog.
    ” Books are like legs, they need to be as long as necessary to reach the ground, otherwise you have serious problems with walking, running, and just moving forward in general.”
    So you see? If they can’t see her legs, they’ll think she’s too short to walk, then we’ll need a two hour conversation explaining walking to the police/ us readers. It’s just better this way.

  2. Now just imagine how Anita would talk about any other woman wearing a red mini under ANY circumstance, let alone to a crime scene
