5.0 out of 5 stars Fool Moon Rocks! 17 Feb. 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It's official! Jim Butcher has a hit series on his hands. Fool Moon, the much anticipated second book in the Dresden Files series, does more than live up to fans' expectations: It exceeds them. This book rocks, fulfilling the lofty precedent set in Storm Front for fast paced action, witty dialogue, a riveting plotline, compelling characters and, most of all, it's endearing protagonist: Harry Dresden, a wisecracking gumshoe wizard with a heart of gold and just enough of a dark side to keep things real.
Fool Moon returns to the alternate-reality version of modern day Chicago as introduced in book one, an unsettling yet exciting world of both everyday familiarity and film-noir style fantasy where chaos results when paranormal forces interact with a mostly disbelieving humanity. It's this disbelief that keeps business in a slump for Harry, the windy city's only professional wizard. Thankfully Lt. Karrin Murphy, head of the Chicago Police's Special Investigations unit, has experienced enough weirdness on Chi Town's mean streets to know that the paranormal threat is very real. Determined to save lives at all costs and faced with having to solve crimes that go beyond the scope of forensic science, Murphy usually turns to Harry for help. But in Fool Moon Harry discovers that Murphy is forced to risk her badge to bring him in on a murder investigation after an editorial in a local paper criticizes her use of public funds to hire a "charlatan psychic" and Internal Affairs begins probing into her suspected connection to the Chicago Mob through her past involvement with Harry.
Time is running out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jim Butcher Does It Again! 3 Jan. 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The second book of The Dresden Files starts with Harry Dresden on a diet of ramin noodles, so broke he has to look up to see the bottom. Then, a strange spell on a sheet of paper and a curious student tempt him with a steak dinner. The action goes a fast pace from there on. Trouble comes, not only from biker gangs and mobsters, but from mysterious wolves that are not wolves. Murders come fast and furious and when Murphy's cut out of the loop, she does her best to put Harry in jail. Then, as if things weren't bad enough, the FBI jumps into the madhouse with both feet. Maybe Harry says it best. 'A mangled corpse in the middle of a blood-drenched floor. Berserk FBI field agents drawing guns and shooting to kill. A little kung-fu, a little John Wayne, and a few casual threats. It was just one more night on the job.' Are the Good Guys good or bad? Are the Bad Guys good? The twists and turns of this plot will keep you guessing right up until the very end. Just one warning, don't start it too close to bedtime. You can't put this book down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harry Dresden is back! 2 Jan. 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After Jim Butcher's smash hit Storm Front, comes Fool Moon--another action packed ride with Harry Dresden, Chicago's best and only wizard PI. A series of bloody murders leads Harry to believe that a pack of werewolves has taken up residence in his city, but time is short. Harry races to discover the lair before the full moon rises.

I loved the first book and this one is just as good. Jim Butcher delves a little deeper into Harry's past, and at the same time puts a new slant on his friendship with Murphy. Murphy is under pressure to bring Harry in for questioning, but she knows that if anyone can solve the murders, it is him. Forced to choose between her job and her friendship with Harry when Internal Affairs get involved, she chooses... :) but that would be telling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jim Butcher - Not A Fool 3 May 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Fool Moon is the second in the series of The Dresden Files written by Jim Butcher.

Welcome to the world of Harry Dresden - Wizard.

Actually the only wizard known to mankind and listed in the Chicargo yellow pages.

In his second adventure Harry finds himself drawn into another murder investigation by his friend Karrin Murphy but soon finds himself under suspicion of being involved.

With rampaging warewolves killing the obvious suspects competitors and also out to kill Harry himself - add to that cops hunting him down on suspicion of collaberation and you have Harry desperately trying to stop the murders and prove his innocence.

This is an excellent sequal to the original Storm Front and in many respects it even betters the original.

I highly recommend this book, although I also recommend starting with book 1 - Storm Front.

High praise for Jim Butcher on a great sequal.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
Harry Dresden is a wizard running his own paranormal investigations (PI) business which occasionally helps the special investigations dept of the Chicago police.
Harry is sort of like the paranormal version of Jim Rockford played by James Garner in the Rockford files (poor, beaten up, sucker for the damsel, has a love/hate relationship with a particular cop etc)
In this 2nd book relationships from the 1st develop, and the plot revolves around werewolves, hexenwolves, lycanthropes and loupgarou as every type of wolf gets thrown at Harry during the full moon when he investigates some strange pawmarks at the scene of a gruesome murder.
The book has nice touches of humour in between Harry getting beaten up/mauled one of my favourites is :-
I'd rolled my eyes. Billy-the-wolf had snarled and struggled out of his robe, picked it up carefully in his teeth like a large and particularly grumpy-looking Benji, and put it back in the van.
A must for detective fans who do not mind/or love a paranormal setting.
