Living Dead in Dallas is the second book of the Sookie Stackhouse series. Sookie, still in love with Vampire Bill is being sent to Dallas, in order to find the missing companion of the local Vampire leader. She gets involved with the fellowship of the sun, a religious association against Vampires and gets to know another mind reader, so she finally knows she is not unique.
In her hometown Bon Temps things are getting a sexual touch as a maenad is getting into town. Sam, Sookies boss, sort of falls in love with the maenad. When Sookie returns from Dallas she does her best to get the maenad out of town which she only manages with the help of her Vampire friends.
As I liked the first season of the series I already watched season 2 & 3 before reading the second book. The plot of the second season follows very loosely the plot of the second book (more or less, a maenad makes her appearance in Bon Temps and Sookie goes to Dallas). My personal opinion is, that the books are written really good, and the producers of the series take the best parts of the books and make an even better (if a little more controversial) story of it.
I give Living Dead in Dallas 7 out of 10 and started already reading Club Dead (Part 3 of the Sookie Stackhouse novels).
