Dead As A Doornail by Charlaine Harris is the fifth book in the Sookie Stackhouse series.
When Sookie is not waitressing or preoccupied with her own amorous adventures, telepath she is tracking down a serial killer of shapeshifters. She is also trying to save her were-panther brother, Jason, who has become the chief suspect in the crime. Sookie only has a month, before the next full moon, to find out who wants her brother dead and to stop the fiend! Sookie is a great cocktail waitress in a fun bar; she has a love life, though it's 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 Jason's eyes are starting to change and he's about to turn into a were-panther for the first time. Sookie is able to 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 afraid not just because Jason's at risk, but because his new were-brethren suspect Jason may be the shooter. Sookie only has until the next full moon to find out who's behind these attacks , of course, that is unless the killer decides to find her first.
Again thoroughly enjoyed this book, it still has a little humour and Sookie's love life can't get more complicated ...can it?
