Publisher's Summary

Sookie Stackhouse enjoys her life, mostly. She's a great cocktail waitress in a fun bar; she has a love life, albeit a bit complicated, and most people have come to terms with her telepathy. The problem is, Sookie wants a quiet life - but things just seem to happen to her and her friends. Now her brother Jason's eyes are starting to change: he's about to turn into a were-panther for the first time. She can deal with that, but her normal sisterly concern turns to cold fear when a sniper sets his deadly sights on the local changeling population. She's afraid not just because Jason's at risk, but because his new were-brethren suspect Jason may be the shooter.
Sookie has until the next full moon to find out who's behind the attacks - unless the killer decides to find her first.

Loved It

Any additional comments?

Great narration. I like to list this first as it can make or break a story.

Loved this story. Easy listerning and very entertaining. Will be impatiently waiting for any new books in audio from this author.

I really enjoy it when readers with similar reading interests list their favourite authors and series. It really helps me find new authors too follow. Mine are Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Molly Harper, Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Deborah Harkness, Nalini Singh, Coreene Callahan and Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Happy Reading

I love the Sookie Stackhouse Series!

I love everything Charlaine Harris does and this is no exception! What a great listen! Thoroughly enjoyable and of course snaps to the narrator who, as always, does a fantastic job!

Dead as a doornail

This is book 5 of the Sookie Stackhouse series. Someone seems to have it in for the local shifter population, and Sookie has until the next full moon to discover the culpret. This has all the Charlaine Harris trademarks; plenty of action, mystery and romance, and the characters fans have come to know and love. A great addition to the series.

The story that keeps surprising

Another totally absorbing story that seductively draws you into the lurid world of Ms Stackhouse. The other world is so intisingly revealed that you just cannot stop trying to take a peep.

A Solid Entry In The Series

Though slow to start, Dead as a Doornail managed to reach a point in the story where I could not stop listening. Charlaine Harris is a genius at making the final chapters absolutely riveting and chock full of suspense, while albeit predictable. She sets up the next book well here.

The performance by Joanna Parker is as always phenomenal. Though not perfect at doing masculine voices, she goes above and beyond to voice Sookie to perfection!

It may take some time for you to get into it, but you won’t regret it by the end.
