I think this is my favorite Dresden book so far. I love Harry's character for the same reason I enjoy Stephanie Plum (Janet Evanovich)and Mercy Thompson (Patricia Briggs) they're all smart-alecky tough guys. The character of Butters is showcased in this book and I enjoyed getting to know this polka loving coroner. Harry's skills are put the test as per usual and in the end he has to trust people he doesn't like. A rollicking good read, and I love the pun in the title (after you read the book you'll get it).
