Dead Beat (Dresden Files, Bk 7)
robinmy avatar reviewed on + 2045 more book reviews

A killer vampire threatens to destroy Karrin Murphy's reputation unless Harry Dresden does her bidding. The vampire wants the Word of Kemmler and all the power that comes with it. Harry soon finds out that there are several necromancers in town, looking for the same thing he is, and ready to raise an army of dead to accomplish it. With the help of Bob the skull and Medical Examiner Waldo Butters, Harry and the Wardens fight against the evil taking over the city.

Another action packed book. Thomas has been living with Harry while trying to figure out what to do with his life. Mouse has grown from a puppy into a pony-sized dog. The villains in this book stand out, especially the Corpsetaker. And, Sue the Dinosaur just makes everything perfect. I read this book a few years ago and this time I listened to the audiobook. Outstanding narration from James Marsters. My rating: 5 Stars.
