In a society where humans and vampires co-exist, set in the small town of Bon Temps, Louisiana, Sookie is a young woman who may have found a perfect boyfriend.

Sookie is clairvoyant and constantly hears people's thoughts so it makes dating a bit difficult since she tries to keep her ability a secret.

When 173-year-old vampire Bill Compton walks into the Merlotte's Bar & Grill where she works as a waitress, she realizes that she can't "hear" what he's thinking, thus giving away his origins since she can't hear the thoughts of those whom are technically dead.

Vampires "came out of the coffin" two years ago when the Japanese invented Tru Blood, a synthetic blood substitute. Sookie rescues Bill when a couple of lowlife rednecks, the Rattrays, try to steal his blood to sell on the black market, but she may have a price to pay for interfering.

The action continues with Sookie's younger brother, Jason, a smooth-talking hustler and Lothario who works part-time with a construction crew.

Tara Thornton is Sookie's ill-tempered best friend whom finds her bad-boy brother irresistible. Sam Merlotte is the owner of Merlotte's Bar, who keeps his romantic feelings for Sookie to himself.

Lafayette Reynolds is Tara's flamboyant gay cousin and the short-order cook at Merlotte's as well as Jason's co-worker at his construction day job who has more to offer than his gourmet foods.

Arlene Fowler is a middle-aged divorc�e and another of Sookie's friends and co-workers at Merlotte's looking for a new husband to help raise her two children.

Andy Bellefleur is the local police detective working with the collaboration of the town sheriff, Bud Dearborn, whom thinks the town may have a killer in their mists as they investigate the strangulation case.
