Summary:

In this novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling Dresden Files, Chicago's only professional wizard takes on a case for a vampire and becomes the prime suspect in a series of ghastly murders.

Harry Dresden has had worse assignments than going undercover on the set of an adult film. Like fleeing a burning building full of enraged demon-monkeys, for instance. Or going toe-to-leaf with a walking plant monster. Still, there’s something more troubling than usual about his newest case. The film’s producer believes he’s the target of a sinister curse—but it’s the women around him who are dying, in increasingly spectacular ways.
 
Harry’s doubly frustrated because he only got involved with this bizarre mystery as a favor to Thomas—his flirtatious, self-absorbed vampire acquaintance of dubious integrity. Thomas has a personal stake in the case Harry can’t quite figure out, until his investigation leads him straight to the vampire’s oversexed, bite-happy family. Now, Harry’s about to discover that Thomas’ family tree has been hiding a shocking secret: a revelation that will change Harry’s life forever.

    I can 't say enough good things about Jim Butcher's writing and the Dresden Files books in particular. The usual fantastic combo of intrigue, action, surprises, twists, and the perfect dose of humor. I feel the narrator was BETTER in this book about not EMPHASIZING as many words in every SENTENCE. At times it seems like he is narrating in a normal manner, but at others, he still puts emphasis on WORDS for no apparent REASON. Not as annoying as the previous book, but it can still be distracting. The narrator also has a decent range of voices for the male characters, but very little variance in the female characters, and those often speak in a halting manner, as if they can't carry on a decent conversation.
