This is a perfect little mystery/urban fantasy novel from JIm Butcher in his continuing Harry Dresden series. As we know from the last books in the series, and I do not recommend starting the seried with this book first. Harry Dresden is a powerful wizard. A Warden for the Wizard hierarchy, and an outsider. He has a young Apprentice named Molly, who is a warlock, a half brother who is a vampire and friends in high places and low places. Early books emphasized Harry's relationship with a skull on his desk, but in the last few books, the skull is not important at all. Instead in this novel, Morgan, an age old adversary, comes to Harry for help, he is being framed for a crime he did not commit, and Harry vows to investigate.

Without going into too much detail, Harry's half brother - a vampire who feeds on the sexual energy of its victims is trapped by an ancient evil skinwalker who wants Harry to trade his brother for Morgan. In between is a good little mystery, action and a very good plot.

The Dresden novels are reliably good and this one is no exception.

If you read the earlier novels, then read this one. Its very very good
