That grabbed you, didn’t it? That is part of the first line from the blurb on Kim Harrison’s latest book, A Perfect Blood. I will admit that I have never read Harrison’s work. But I had to chuckle at the phrase “ritually murdered corpses.” I know she writes about demons, vampires, and the like, but still– can a corpse be murdered? One of the reviews I read implied that the corpses were demonic in nature. Okay, but couldn’t she have said “ritually murdered demons”? And if it’s a demon, a human, and a vampire found dead (or semi-dead, or all-the-way dead), one might say, “Corpses are turning up in Cincinnati, all ritually brutalized . . . .” Well, this overly picky editor is going to go brew up some green tea.
