Product Description

From Booklist

Sookie Stackhouse is having man trouble. Her vampire boyfriend, Bill, has been distant and inattentive lately. Then he announces that he is going on a business trip, which clearly is more than it seems. After a werewolf tries to abduct Sookie at work, Bill's boss, Eric, tells her that Bill fell under the sway of his--Bill's, that is--ex, a sexy vamp named Lorena, and has been kidnapped. Eric wants Sookie's help in getting Bill back, and despite her hurt over Bill's betrayal, Sookie agrees to go to Jackson, Mississippi, to find her wayward lover. Eric has persuaded Alcide, a dashing werewolf, to get Sookie access to Josephine's, aka Club Dead, the local hangout of Jackson's supernatural element. In between dodging kidnappers, the advances of amorous Eric, and her growing feelings for Alcide, Sookie has to find out who kidnapped Bill and figure out a way to rescue him. With some droll touches--Elvis, now a vampire, is Sookie's faithful guard --Club Dead is ideal for readers who like their vampire fiction light, humorous, and fast-paced. Kristine Huntley

Sookie Stackhouse was only interested in one vampire and that was Bill, her boyfriend. However, Bill seemed to be putting some distance between them recently. Then he disappeared to another state! His sinister and sexy boss, Eric, said that Bill had been summoned to Mississippi by Lorena. She was a lady vampire Bill had lived with for some time before. That was enough for Sookie. She was on the way to Mississippi.
Alcide Herveaux was to be Sookie's contact/guide. He was a werewolf. With his help, Sookie could enter places that mere mortals seldom dared tread, such as Club Dead. The vampire king of Mississippi (yes, readers, you read that correctly) was Russell Edgington. Russell took interest in Sookie very quickly. Eric arrived on the scene, in disguise as usual. Several attempts were made on Sookie's life and Bill was caught in an act of serious betrayal against Sookie's love. Sookie was not sure whether to save Bill or sharpen a few stakes of her own!
***** Much better than book two. Again, this mystery could be read as a "stand alone" book. But the main and secondary characters remain the same. The love triangle between Sookie, Bill, and Eric gets much rougher. That triangle is enjoyed more by those who have read the first two previous books though.
This entire series, thus far, is humorous, fun, very sexy, and highly recommended! *****

Bill the Vampire has been obsessed with a computer program that he is developing in secret. He has withdrawn from his human girlfriend Sookie. So, when he disappears on a business trip to Mississippi, she isn't all that surprised to find out that he was planning to leave her for another woman, a vampire ex-lover named Lorena. She isn't all that thrilled to be ordered by Eric, Bill's boss, to go to Jackson to try to find him. She is accompanied by a were named Alcide, who owes Eric a favor. Most of the action revolves around a bar for the supernatural and their guests called Josephine's, or Club Dead by the weres and shapeshifters. Sookie has to rescue Bill, fend off Eric, and protect herself from a pack of werewolves. Alcide's ex also wants her dead. Fending off drunks in Merlotte's suddenly doesn't seem that bad.
This was a very good addition to this series. The relationships between Sookie and the vampires is more fully developed, especially the Vampire Sheriff, Eric. The introduction of werewolves looks promising for future books, as Sookie's personal relationships are getting more and more complicated. Great book, I hope I don't have to wait so long for the next one.

Club Dead is the third in the Sookie Stackhouse series for Ms Harris, following Living Dead in Dallas and Dead After Dark. I think it can be read on its own, as references to earlier books are fully explained, but why not read the earlier two - they will deepen your enjoyment of the third in the series.
Sookie and vampire boyfriend Bill have been together for almost a year now. Although things between them are by no means perfect - even asside from the fact they are not the same species - Sookie loves Bill. But one night he announces that hes about to take a trip, and she just knows he's lying to her, even hampered by her inability to read his thoughts (and those of any vampire, which makes them a restful race to Sookie for that if nothing else). Things go from bad to worse as Bill goes missing, suspected dead. Finally dead. And he's betrayed her in the worst way - lie upon lie.
Sookie is drawn by events and by her own feeling for Bill to search for him, undead or really dead. And here she enters ever deeper the life of vampires, Were and Shifters. She?s seemingly constantly in danger, surrounded by those she doesn't know if she can trust (okay mostly Eric) and bombarded by badness. Yet Sookie seldom looses her sense of humor, her ability to self deprecate, and I find this very engaging in her. Her own telepathic abilities clearly make her attractive to a class of people where for most of her life she's simply been regarded as crazy.
New Alcides is one that adds his own attractive flavour: in the unnatural world, he offers a possible future to Sookie that she finds almost irresistible. This very human ability to be attracted by options, even while wishing to remain 'faithful' is also very appealling to me as a reader.

On an alternate Earth, vampires came out of the closet when synthetic was made readily available and at least in the United States they receive the same rights as humans. Sookie Stackhouse, a very powerful telepath, has been dating Bill for over a year and is very happy with him, but also has noticed her vampire lover has distanced himself from her. He disappears one day, telling her he is going to Seattle for business. Later she learns from Bill's boss Eric that he was planning to dump her and go back to his vampire lover.
She finds out that the vampire king of Mississippi kidnapped Bill to gain top secret knowledge from him. Sookie goes to Jackson to infiltrate the vampire community there. A werewolf who owes the vampires a favor takes her to the CLUB DEAD where she is badly injured trying to save a vampire about to be staked. She is taken to the King's compound where Bill is held. She attempts a daring rescue knowing if she fails she will be tortured and killed.
Charlaine Harris blends elements from the horror, mystery and romance genres to create a novel that is refreshingly unique. Readers will admire the heroine who goes through a lot of pain, both physical and emotional, to try and save her two timing boyfriend. She meets a werewolf who she is attracted to but they are both on the rebound so they agree to wait awhile before they begin a new relationship. Readers will not have a minuscule of sympathy towards Bill who brought all his troubles upon himself. CLUB DEAD is a real live treat.
