An insurance agent named Greg Aubert asks Sookie Stackhouse to investigate a break-in at his office. He is worried that someone will discover that he uses magic spells to protect both his property and his clients. Sookie, along with her Witch friend Amelia, discover that the break-in was just Greg's daughter and her secretive boyfriend, who is actually a recently-turned vampire. However, Sookie learns that two other agents in town have had break-ins, and all are getting excessive amounts of claims which may drive them out of business. Perhaps Greg's spells have been using up all the luck in town...
