One more day until ‘Dead Reckoning’ release! Here’s a sneak peek! May 1, 2011

Posted by Diana McCabe in News.

Only one more day until we get DEAD RECKONING, book No. 11 in the Charlaine Harris Sookie Stackhouse series. This preview has been out there for a little while but in case you haven’t read it — and are dying for a little bit of a sneak preview of what’s to come — check out Chapter 3 that Penguin released. You can read the chapter by clicking here. This is a long chapter. I’m interested in what folks think about this part — which comes at the end of the chapter:

“Is there something you want to tell me?” I asked, frightened of the answer. But anything was better than not knowing.

“Eric got a letter—” Pam began, and before I could register that he’d moved, Eric had whipped around, reached over the seat, and seized her throat. Since he was still driving, I squawked in terror.

“Eyes ahead, Eric! Not with the fighting again,” I said. “Look, just go on and tell me!”

With his right hand, Eric was still holding Pam in a grip that would have choked her if she’d been a breather. He was steering with his left hand, and we coasted to a stop on the side of the road. I couldn’t see any oncoming traffic, and no lights behind us, either. I didn’t know if the isolation made me feel good or bad. Eric looked back at his child, and his eyes were so bright they were practically throwing sparks. He said, “Pam, don’t speak. That’s an order. Sookie, leave this be.”

What’s in the letter?

I have this book on order and have been assured that it is in the mail. I am so-o-o hoping it is better than the last book which I thought was not up to Harris’ usual standard.
I can’t even guess what is in the letter.

Off topic: I just finished Reynolds’ SOPHIA. Yum!

I’ve been holding off on reading any excerpts,but that little snippet was intriguing. A letter huh? Who knows with this crowd. Totally excited though. The wait is almost over.
