In the penultimate novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, Sookie Stackhouse must work with her first love to clear her current undead flame of murder... Felipe de Castro, the vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town. It's the worst possible time for a human body to show up in Eric Northman's front yard--especially the body of a woman whose blood he just drank. Now it's up to Sookie and Bill Compton, the official Area Five investigator, to solve the murder. Sookie thinks that, at least this time, the dead girl's fate has nothing to do with her. But she is wrong. She has an enemy, one far more devious than she would ever suspect, who has set out to make Sookie's world come crashing down.

In this engrossing installment of the best-selling "Southern Vampire" series, Sookie Stackhouse from Bon Temps, LA, is ensnared in another mysterious death and the politics of every supernatural group in town, from the werewolves to the vampires to the magical fae. Sookie's life is in an uproar-she and her vampire husband, Eric, are on eggshells, all the worse when she finds him feeding on another woman, a young "were" whose intoxicating scent is irresistible. When this stranger winds up dead on Eric's front lawn, all worlds collide as Sookie scrambles to clear his name-and her own. Audie Award-winning narrator Johanna Parker's dynamic Southern tones are seamless with Harris's prose. VERDICT Though this book is much less sexy than previous novels in the series, Harris delivers another trademark mystery with fantastic characters and nonstop action. True Blood fans will not be disappointed. [The Ace hc, published in May, was a New York Times best seller.-Ed.]-Jamie-Lee Schombs, Middletown, NY (c) Copyright 2012.

Deadlocked is the twelfth (and penultimate) full-length novel in the Sookie Stackhouse series by popular American author, Charlaine Harris. After a somewhat slow start, there’s plenty of action in this instalment, including kidnappings, the birth of twins, the rescue of hostages, incitement of rebellion, a few murders, seduction and a were pack judgement.

The Vampire King of Louisiana, Nevada and Arkansas visits Eric to find out what happened to his missing regent, Victor Madden. During his visit, Sookie catches Eric in a somewhat compromising situation with a half-were girl who is later found murdered on his front lawn. As Sookie, Bill and Dermot investigate the who and the why of it, they discover some unsurprising truths, but are thoroughly shocked when they learn who is ultimately responsible.

In addition, the Vampire Queen of Oklahoma comes to convince the man she is contracted to marry (Eric) of the advantages of their union; Ladies Only night at Hooligans brings a surprise for Sookie and her friends; Sookie agonises over her ownership of the magical Cluviel Dor; Sookie has a birthday and makes a will; and an antiques dealer gets greedy and pays a high price. Sookie makes a monumental decision that will see readers eager for the final book, Dead Ever After.
