Review Quotes:
Praise for #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse novels

"It's the kind of book you look forward to reading before you go to bed, thinking you're only going to read one chapter, and then you end up reading seven."--Alan Ball, executive producer of True Blood

"Vivid, subtle, and funny in her portrayal of southern life."-- Entertainment Weekly

"Charlaine Harris has vividly imagined telepathic barmaid Sookie Stackhouse and her small-town Louisiana milieu, where humans, vampires, shapeshifters, and other sentient critters live...Her mash-up of genres is delightful, taking elements from mysteries, horror stories, and romances."-- Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"The series continues to be inventive and funny with an engaging, smart, and sexy heroine."-- The Denver Post

"Blending action, romance, and comedy, Harris has created a fully functioning world so very close to our own, except, of course, for the vamps and other supernatural creatures."-- The Toronto Star


Publisher Marketing:
The second novel in #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris's "addictively entertaining"(Locus) Sookie Stackhouse series--the inspiration for the HBO(R) original series True Blood.

Even though Sookie has her own vampire to look out for her--her red-hot, cold-blooded boyfriend, Bill Compton--she has to admit that the bloodsuckers did save her life. So when one of the local Undead asks the cocktail waitress for a favor, she feels like she owes them.

Soon, Sookie's in Dallas using her telepathic skills to search for a missing vampire. She's supposed to interview certain humans involved. There's just one condition: The vampires must promise to behave--and let the humans go unharmed. Easier said than done. All it takes is one delicious blonde and one small mistake for things to turn deadly...
