Harry Dresden is a wizard. Most people in Chicago don’t believe in magic or wizards, Science has seen to that, but he still gets called in to assist the police on occasion. Their Special Investigation department may be not be the dream assignment but police there still have to work. Although recently Harry hasn’t received too much business from them. A result of what happened in the first book I’m guessing, seeing as I didn’t read that. But when there are a series of extremely violent deaths Murphy, head of Special Investigations, comes calling. It looks like werewolves are on the loose.

This style of urban fantasy/horror seems to be showing up more and more. Of course there is Laurell K Hamilton’s series which is still bewilderingly popular, and this is in a similar vein. Well, similar to the early ones in that series, there is less focus on sex. And of course in Hamilton’s world everyone knows about the monsters. In Dresden’s most people don’t. But they have the same general tone; murders, crimes, monsters, bit of humour, narrator addressing the reader, all that sort of thing.

Fool Moon is an average book. Nothing special, but it isn’t a bad read either, perfect for some light entertainment. If you are prepared to accept descriptions of blood splattered corpses of course.
