Tepid is the best way to describe my feelings after finishing this book. It wasn't bad. It wasn't all that good either.

Harry Dresden comes off as an homage (or rip off) of classic noir detectives rather than following in his footsteps. There's the bad taste of wish fulfillment in the fact that he's grumpy and unkempt while still being chivalrous and romantic at heart.

As for his actually detective skills... they are more than a little lacking. He never actually makes a break in his own case. Inst
A nice quick fantasy read. Some think it a bit overdone but I like the whole gumshoe detective genre and this adds a nice twist of the gumshoe being a wizard. I will probably read more in this series when I have the time.
