Harry is a wizard. No, not that wizard. This one is tall and lank, carries a staff, and shorts out any electronics he comes near. His business as a paranormal consultant ("No love potions, endless purses, parties, or other entertainment") brings him to the scene of a double murder. While helping the police Harry runs into the mob, demons, and a mentor that wants to kill him. All in a day's work....I liked the novel and found it to be an easy, fun read. The world is explained in the tiniest drips and drabs, and while normally I love that I was dying for a little more info. I plan to chip away at this series (14+ novels and counting) in the future... but not right now.
