Dresden really can't catch a break. Even when he's dead, he's not allowed to relax, but instead has to head back to the mortal world as an insubstantial shade to hunt down his own killer. After the epic reach of the previous book, this is necessarily smaller and more intimate. Most interesting is the radical development in the supporting cast, who are showing the strain of months spent defending Chicago in Harry's absence. It's clearly been a hard road to walk, and has not been kind on Murphy, Molly, and the others. Some of the book's most powerful moments leave you to compare these hard-edged, brittle people with how they once were.
