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...
I was pleased with this conclusion to the Sookie Stackhouse series. This is book 13 and it starts a little slow and not in Sookie's point of view. There are actually several instances of third person throughout the book. Pretty much every character still living in Sookie's universe seems to make an appearance in this book. As Sookie is arrested for a murder she did not commit, she finds out just how much love and support she really has in her friends. While some people may not be pleased by the ending, it was pretty much as I predicted. I loved this series in the beginning, but it's been getting a little old over the last few books. I'm happy the end is here to have some closure.
