The description to the book reveals a huge spoiler for anyone who hasn't finished the series. If you're ever considering reading the Dresden files then skip this part entirely, as both the page long editorial and short story itself aren't meant to be read until you have finished the series.
I'm staggered that this wasn't mentioned. How hard would it have been to have included a line saying 'Spoiler ahead- do not read unless you have finished the Dresden files series.'?
Other than that the stories in this book are very good, I've enjoyed most of them and skipped those that I did not enjoy.
There were a few stories that properly disappointed me, being less about 'dangerous women' and more about the men who wanted to have sex with said women, the tired old 'femme fatale' trope that I hoped this book would avoid - 'Wrestling Jesus' and 'I Know How to Pick 'Em' were particularly bad for this. 'Wrestling Jesus' bored me, frankly, and 'I Know How to Pick 'Em' made me put my Kindle down in disgust after finishing it. There's a persistent theme of sexual violence through a lot of the stories that bothered me.
