Hold on to your hats, it's another rollercoaster ride with Harry Dresden :-)
Lois McMaster Bujold apparently sometimes drives her plots by asking herself "What's the worst thing I could do to this character?" and it seems to me that Butcher has taken a leaf out of her book, so to speak, with regard to some of the supporting cast in this book.
Another brilliant instalment in this series. And now I have to wait for the next one to come out in paperback. [cries]
