Book Description

5 Mar 2009
The best paranormal private investigators have been brought together in one volume - and cases don't come any harder than this. Jim Butcher delivers a hard-boiled tale in which Harry Dresden's latest case may be his last. Nightside dweller John Taylor is hired by a woman to find something she lost - her memory. Kat Richardson's Greywalker finds herself in too deep when a simple job goes bad. And detective Remy Chandler has been hired to find out who killed the immortal being we know as Noah.

These are four novellas from four private investigator/paranormal character series. Each of the four has a very different flavor. The page numbers indicate actual print pages for each story. The book is 311 pages long but there are many blank pages and also title and dedication pages which I have not counted toward story length.

Jim Butcher - Harry Dresden in "The Warrior" - 59 pages - 5 stars
This story just jumps right in to the previous relationship between Harry and Michael without filling in much background. Someone is sending Harry photographs of Michael and his family as a possible warning of danger to them. As it unfolds, the messages were actually aimed to get Harry's attention. If you've never read any other Harry Dresden stories, this is probably not going to help you a whole lot with catching up with character development, but it will certainly show you the high quality you can expect from a book written by Jim Butcher.

I saw a statement written by someone several weeks ago where he was complaining about having "Christian propaganda shoved down his throat". If you feel that way also, I need to tell you that this story is full of Christian symbols, history and doctrine juxtaposed very nicely with magical abilities. I loved it!

Simon R. Green - John Taylor in "The Difference a Day Makes" - 63 pages - 5 stars
John Taylor and Dead Boy are spending some quality time at the oldest bar in the world, Strangefellows, in the Nightside when trouble comes walking through the door. This trouble has lost her memory for the last 24 hours and she wants John to find those memories for her because her husband may be in trouble.

Have you ever read a really good parody of a bad Humphrey Bogart film?

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Stories 26 Dec 2009
I already am a fan of Jim Butcher and Simon R Green. Their writing was top-notch, as usual. The other two authors were unknown to me, but I enjoyed them too. The stories are your typical nightly bedside read length and are interesting, and concise. They all revolve around established characters in their own novelization series. I really enjoyed revisiting the Nightside, having exhausted all of Green's books on that series. And it was good to revisit one of Butcher's characters from a Dresden previous plot arc.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great read 17 Oct 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got this book for the Jim Butcher Story and loved reading what had happened to a previous character that had retired from the active stories of the Dresden Files. I also enjoyed a couple of the other stories in the book and found them very interesting and hard to put down.
