Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris

With her knack for being in trouble's way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte's, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. Sookie suspects otherwise, but her attention is divided when she realizes that her lover Eric Northman and his "child" Pam are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, Sookie is drawn into the plot-which is much more complicated than she knows...

Where to Buy

This book was an improvement over the last one in my opinion, as it seemed to stay more focused, and clearly was leading to one main conclusion. Sure there are still plenty of loose ends, and as many new questions raised as were answered, but a few of the nastier loose ends from previous books are taken care of finally. I can't say I'm entirely happy with how everything played out, or with some of the changes that have occurred, but some of them might well turn out to be for the best in the long run. Time will tell. Overall, a good, if somewhat disturbing and unsettling addition to the series.
