Review of: Dead as a Doornail (sookie Stackhouse, Book 5) by Charlaine Harris

 "Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana. She's pretty and well-mannered and has only a few close friends - which isn't surprising, since not many people can appreciate Sookie's abilities as a mind reader. It's not a quality that has the guys beating down her door - unless they're vampires, werewolves, or other supernatural beings. And now some of them aren't just friendly - they're family." "When Sookie sees her brother Jason's eyes start to change, she knows he's about to turn into a werepanther for the first time - a transformation he embraces more readily than most shapeshifters she's known. But her concern for her brother becomes cold fear when a sniper sets his deadly sights on the local changeling population - and Jason's new panther brethren suspect he may be the shooter." Now, Sookie has until the next full moon to find out who's behind the attacks - unless the killer decides to find her first.

Someone is in Bon Temps shooting shifters. Sookie's werepanther friend, Calvin Norris has been hurt badly. After Sookie's boss Sam is hurt by a sniper's bullet, Sookie goes to Eric to borrow a bartender for Merlotte's while Sam's broken leg heals. There is also a power struggle going on amongst the Shreveport Were's. Alcide's father and another man are running for packleader. But one side is NOT fighting fair.
