There are secrets in the town of Bon Temps, ones that threaten those closest to Sookie—and could destroy her heart….
Sookie Stackhouse finds it easy to turn down the request of former barmaid Arlene when she wants her job back at Merlotte’s. After all, Arlene tried to have Sookie killed. But her relationship with Eric Northman is not so clearcut. He and his vampires are keeping their distance…and a cold silence. And when Sookie learns the reason why, she is devastated.
Then a shocking murder rocks Bon Temps, and Sookie is arrested for the crime.
But the evidence against Sookie is weak, and she makes bail. Investigating the killing, she’ll learn that what passes for truth in Bon Temps is only a convenient lie. What passes for justice is more spilled blood. And what passes for love is never enough…

“Harris’s creation offers a magical and mysterious twist on traditional vampire stories.”—Houston Chronicle
“What sucked me in? Definitely the books’ oddly charming, often funny mix of the mundane and the absurd. And the chills and thrills in boudoirs and various locales around the South aren’t too bad either.”—The Seattle Times
It’s been a long road, hasn’t it, since Dead Until Dark? As Sookie’s world spread and evolved, and more and more people followed the chronicle of this segment of her life, my life changed in ways I never could have imagined. Your enjoyment of these books made that possible.
Thanks for sticking with me for so many years while I wrote about the adventure of Sookie’s life. I know there will be days when I’ll miss the world of Bon Temps, and I’ll wonder what all the people there are doing. At the same time, I look forward to working on the other projects I have planned.
It’s been a great journey. I’m glad I had your company.
