Sookie Stackhouse seems like your average, small-town waitress in Bon Temps, Louisiana. Except she’s definitely not average. Sookie can read people’s minds, something she’s been able to do for years but keeps it to herself. All she wants is a little quiet, but knows she can’t date anyone whose thoughts she can hear. Then comes along Bill Compton. Bill is a vampire in a town where people are very wary of his kind, all except Sookie. As Sookie starts to fall for Bill, a string of murders plagues the town and Bill seems like the prime suspect. Can Sookie find out who the murderer is before she becomes the next victim?
