Sookie Stackhouse enjoys her job as a cocktail waitress in Merlotte’s, a small-town bar in small-town Bon Temps, deep in Louisiana. She’s funny and pretty and, thanks to her grandmother, she’s very well-mannered — but since not many people truly appreciate her ability to read their minds, the guys haven’t exactly been beating down her door … And then along came Bill, tall, dark and handsome — and Sookie couldn’t ‘hear’ a word he was thinking. He was exactly the type of guy she’d been waiting all her life for. Of course, Bill had a disability of his own: fussy about his food, not into suntans, bit of a night person: yep, Bill was a vampire. But at least now Sookie nows there *are* guys she can date who won’t worry about her catching them thinking about other women …

The police are convinced there’s something fishy going on when the grave is opened to reveal the centuries-dead remains of a man, which they’d expected (that being his grave, after all) and a dead girl, which no one expected — except Harper, of course. And suspicions are raised even further because Harper had failed to find eleven-year-old Tabitha Morgenstern when she was abducted two years before.Harper and Tolliver need to find the real killer to prove Harper’s innocence, especially after their nocturnal visit to the cemetery in hopes that Harper can sense something more is followed by the discovery, the following morning, of a third dead body in the grave …
