More About the Author

Charlaine Harris was born in Tunica, Mississippi, and raised in the Mississippi River Delta area in the middle of a cotton field. Though her early works consisted largely of poems about ghosts and, later, teenage angst, she wrote plays when she attended Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee and started writing novels a few years later.

After publishing two stand-alone mysteries, Harris launched a light-hearted mystery series 'starring' Georgia librarian Aurora Teagarden. The first of the eight books, Real Murders, was shortlisted for Best Novel in the 1990 Agatha Awards. In 1996, she released the first of the much darker Shakespeare mysteries, featuring the amateur sleuth Lily Bard, a karate student who makes her living cleaning houses.

Charlaine Harris then wrote the first of her Southern vampire mysteries starring Sookie Stackhouse, the quirky, telepathic waitress who works in a bar in the fictional Northern Louisiana town of Bon Temps. Dead Until Dark won the Anthony Award for Best Paperback Mystery. It also won Harris a whole new fan club of devoted readers and pushed her into the bestseller lists. The Sookie Stackhouse series, in which Sookie has to deal with vampires, werecreatures and other supernatural folk - not to mention her own complicated love life - was also instrumental in creating the urban fantasy genre.

Sookie Stackhouse also enchanted Alan Ball, creator of the smash TV show Six Feet Under, who took an option and wrote and directed the pilot episode for True Blood himself. It was an instant hit when it premiered in the US, and that success was repeated when it was first aired in Britain last year. The second season of TRUE BLOOD will start this spring.

Harris's newest series features Harper Connelly, a young woman who, after being struck by lightning, finds herself able to locate the bodies of the dead and to determine the cause of their death. There are four Harper titles (Grave Sight, Grave Surprise, An Ice Cold Grave and Grave Secret).

Charlaine Harris is a member of the Mystery Writers of America and the American Crime Writers League. She is a member of the board of Sisters in Crime, and alternates with Joan Hess as president of the Arkansas Mystery Writers Alliance. She is married, the mother of three, and lives in a small town in Southern Arkansas. When she is not writing her own books, she reads omnivorously!

Book Description

Two heroines. Two Southern towns. Two blistering crime novels.

From the Back Cover

Charlaine Harris is a No. 1 Sunday Times, and internationally, best-selling author of four different and exceptional series. She has topped the charts in more than thirty different languages around the world, with her magical combination of engrossing mystery, strong characters and a touch of romance.

So now, by popular demand, her debut Southern mystery novels are coming to the UK.

SWEET AND DEADLY

Six months ago Catherine Linton's parents died in a car crash. Now, she's returning to her hometown -Lowfield, Mississippi - because she doesn't believe it was an accident. She wants answers, and when she starts asking questions they lead her to the dead, badly beaten, body of one of her father's long-term colleagues. She was right: there are secrets being kept in Lowfield. But if she keeps investigating, the town where she grew up might also send her to her grave . . .

SECRET RAGE

Nickie Callahan is full of optimism when she moves to the sleepy town of Knolls, Tennessee. Her career as a New York City model may be over, but she plans to go back to college and train up to become a writer. But the women of Knolls are not safe. There's a violent attack at her college - and then another. As Nickie is unwillingly swept up in what becomes a string of brutal crimes, she must take matters of justice into her own hands if she is to keep hold of her new, promising life . . .

3.0 out of 5 stars From a byegone age.... 7 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
'Sweet and Deadly' is a murder mystery from the 20th century, when reporters used typewriters and developed photographs in a dark room. Catherine is a reporter working for a local newspaper in her home village in Mississipi. Her parents were recently killed in a car accident, and Catherine believes they were murdered. Is she right? Why are other people being murdered too? 'A Secret Rage' is also set in the southern USA, and is about ladies looking for a nasty rapist. These novels are up to the usual standard of Charlaine Harris's fiction, both readable and enjoyable, but don't expect anything supernatural. They were both published first in the USA in the 1980's, but have just been published in the UK for the first time.

Good storyline keeps you guessing till the end. Main character has a personality and the writer gives the reader lots of characters to draw you in.

I would recommend this book to Charlene Harris fans it is a nicely paced story with a good plot interesting characters but then I may be a bit biased as I think I have collected most of her books and find she can always turn out a interesting tale
