STORM FRONT: Book One Dresden Files - Jim Butcher

This was a very good book, especially as I was reading in tandem with Harlen Coben - DROP SHOT. Not sure if Harlen and Jim have met, but their two respective characters are so wonderfully similar in a very good way. So much so, that as I read DROP SHOT, I keep expecting Myron to begin talking in first person like Harry Dresden in STORM FRONT. Both are funny, smart, out there righting wrongs, smartass comments abound, keep going even when the possibility of bodily harm is on its way.
Harry Dresden is a wizard in Chicago. He is on retainer with the local police for any odd occurences that cannot be explained any other way. Harry has the White Council, watchers of all things magic, on his back for something he was acquitted, but they are still cautious. Harry is hired by a woman to find her husband, he is hired by the detective in the police department on whom all of the unexplained cases get dumped, to find who killed a local mob boss' right hand man, apparently by magic.
Dresden Files series is more than a series of books of the magic world. It's written like a Chicago private eye boiler. It makes for a super combo.
My favorite peripheral characters are Bob, the skull/spirit and Mister, the 33 pound cat.

I enjoyed this book quite a bit. One day maybe I'll get around to reading the rest of them. I'm just bummed that they got rid of the TV series.

Jezebel: The show was taken off the air because I liked it too much. I am getting it on DVD one of these days.

LOL Vickie! Don't start watching any more shows I like, 'kay?

Jezebel: Give me a list and I'll see what I can do.
It's the reason 'reality shows' have stayed on the air....I hate them and don't watch them...therefore, they stay on and remain ever popular.....sigh......
