Deadlocked (Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood, Book 12)
Itâs vampire politics as usual around the town of Bon Temps, but never before have they hit so close to Sookieâs heartâ¦
Growing up with telepathic abilities, Sookie Stackhouse realized early on there were things sheâd rather not know. And now that sheâs an adult, she also realizes that some things she knows about, sheâd rather not seeâlike Eric Northman feeding off another woman. A younger one.
Thereâs a thing or two sheâd like to say about that, but she has to keep quietâFelipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town. Itâs the worst possible time for a human body to show up in Ericâs front yardâespecially the body of the woman whose blood he just drank.
Now, itâs up to Sookie and Bill, the official Area Five investigator, to solve the murder. Sookie thinks that, at least this time, the dead girlâs fate has nothing to do with her. But she is wrong. She has an enemy, one far more devious than she would ever suspect, whoâs set out to make Sookieâs world come crashing down.
