From the Publisher
It's vampire politics as usual around the town of Bon
Temps, but never before have they hit so close to Sookie's
Growing up with telepathic abilities, Sookie Stackhouse
realized early on there were things she'd rather not know. And now
that she's an adult, she also realizes that some things she knows
about, she'd rather not see-like Eric Northman feeding off another
woman. A younger one.
There's a thing or two she'd like to say about that, but she has
to keep quiet-Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and
Arkansas and Nevada), is in town. It's the worst possible time for
a human body to show up in Eric's front yard-especially the body of
the woman whose blood he just drank.
Now, it's up to Sookie and Bill, the official Area Five
investigator, to solve the murder. Sookie thinks that, at least
this time, the dead girl's fate has nothing to do with her. But she
is wrong. She has an enemy, one far more devious than she would
ever suspect, who's set out to make Sookie's world come crashing
