Because her mind-reading ability tends to spook people, most of Sookie's friends are of the not-exactly-human variety. And now that her brother is about to transform into a were-panther for the first time, the supernatural world is suddenly a family affair. When Sookie realizes a deadly sniper is gunning down the local changelings, her feelings turn to full-blown terror. She needs to stop the assassain before the next full moon...if he doesn't get to her first.
With its delightfully quirky characters and delicious suspense, Dead as a Doornail is a vampire mystery readers will love sinking their fangs into.

"Harris does an admirable job of creating a heroine who's not only interesting but completely believable in a world of the strange and the different. Natural and humorous dialogue and a nicely paced plot...make this entry the best yet in the series." (Publishers Weekly)
I absolutely loved this book. It has everything - action, humor, supernatural, mystery, and romance. I found myself laughing out loud on my way to work many times. Would highly recommend it.
This is a delightful book. Very fun and worth the read (or listening to). I would like to see more of her books available on audible. I definitely recommand this book.
I only discovered this series a few months ago and have flown through all the books in the series so far. This my first time to listen instead of read. Narrator Johanna Parker was fantastic. She did an excellent job with the varied Louisiana bayou accents and she sounded exactly as I always thought Sookie Stackhouse might sound like, which is not usually the case with even the best of narrators. The book, on the other hand, was not as good as the previous novels. The plot was thin at best, didn't really kick in until about half way through and some of the action seemed trite and forced. I also find myself getting tired of Sookie's constant moving from one Supe to another -- it really belittles such a great heroine. I also dislike the direction the author has taken with Bill. Over the last three books he has really turned into an ass -- an immature ass at that. Overall, the book was OK and it will certainly bring me back to the next book in the series.
I love Charlaine Harris - I've read all of her Sookie Stackhouse books as well as all of her Lily Bard books. This is the only Harris book I've listened to, and while the story was everything promised, I found the reading a bit uninflected. Still, certainly worth it!
Sookie's world is getting increasingly complex and even more intriguing! A great listen - even if you haven't read the others in the series leading to this.
If you like romance with male vampires and werewolves with a little mystery on side, some male objectification, and you're a chick - then you'll probably love it.
I don't, I'm not, and I didn't
This wasn't my favorite, but interesting none the less. Keeps me coming back for more ... I love this series !
The audio, as others have stated, wasn't as clean as the others. The lip smacking was almost too much for me to handle !
The series has gone downhill from the initial books published about Sookie. They are quite thin and do not cover much material.
Did not care for the narrator..wasn't as impressive as all the other ones I've heard.
I have loved the Sookie Stackhouse series and have read all of them several times. I wanted to listen to them while I exercise, mow, etc, so I downloaded this one since it happened to be where I am in the series at this time. I'm not a fan of the narrator at all. I keep waiting for her to speed up or something, and just give some life to the characters. To me she just sounds bored. I won't buy another one in this series since she's the only narrator it seems.
