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…
3/5 stars (liked it)
I have not been too happy with the last couple of books, I feel like the stories have gotten dragged out. So in a way I was glad that this book concluded Sookie’s story. Although I thought Charlaine Harris tried too hard to bring back old characters and push away certain characters. I think maybe Sookie’s story should have ended a couple of books ago. Overall I think Sookie made the right decision in who she ended up with, although why it took her so long to realize is crazy. Arlene’s killer is found and I really wasn’t too surprised who was behind it, although seems rather elaborate and eve Sookie points it out. And as always I love the art on the cover.
