Harry Dresden is a wizard P.I. with more trouble than you can shake a wand at and a sarcastic wit to die for – literally.
A fun quick read through a nearly contemporary Chicago where sorcery and demons roil just under the civilized veneer.
I would have given this four stars, or at least three and a half, except for the first person point of view. It’s such a limiting perspective in my opinion, where I must rely on the narrator’s information and thoughts for the entire length of the novel.
And I had the entire ‘mystery’ figured out by the time he first met Monica at his office.
