"A running man: At three in the morning on January first, he was running down the parish road, apparently running for his life."

Dead to the World - Charlaine Harris

This was a really good Sookie story. Many of the old favorites are back, although Bill is missing most of the story. There are a few mysteries going on in this one. We get to meet quite a few new characters too. Cladine, Colonel Flood, Calvin Norris, and Hallow are a few of the most notable. Sookie and Eric also find themselves in a very interesting situation. There are a few twists that make the next novel even more exciting.
