Sookie Stackhouse is back, and just as much fun as ever. In her latest adventure, things are as busy as ever in the little town of BonTemps, Louisiana. Sookie's boyfriend Quinn is missing...and she is frantic to find out what has happened to him.

Someone is killing off the Weres of Hotshot....and the deaths are occurring on both sides of the political fence; a war between the two factions seems imminent. Equally as bad is the political climate in the Vamp world; with Sophie Le-Clerq being seriously wounded and unable to rule in the state, Louisiana is ripe for the picking....will her government be overthrown? What will this mean for Sookie's former love Eric--and all of the other Vamps who report to her? Chock full of mystery, intrigue, and laughs, fans of the series will be sated...until the next Sookie installment.
