Includes a Harry Dresden short story by Jim Butcher, a Nighside story from Simon R. Green, a Harper Blaine story from Kat Richardson, and one other I haven't gotten to yet. All th stories seem to be about contemporary private detectives.
Wizard and private detective Dresden is trying to protect an old friend from a stalker.
A private detective and his undead sidekick try to help a woman recover her lost memories.
Seer to the dead and private detective Harper Blaine goes to Mexico for Dia de los Muertos.
The last story is about Remy, the angel who stepped down from Heaven and has become a private investigator.
My favorite story is the Harper Blaine one. Not sure if that's because she was a woman, or because her story was a little funnier, or because it was about a local custom that's familiar to me...
