It took us a while listening to the other Dresden audio books to stop hearing Spike and start hearing Harry from James Marsters, but the last half dozen books had really sold it.
So it was jarring to get the switch to John Glover on this book. Glover's got a nice voice, but frankly, he sounds too old to be Harry - more curmudgeonly old fart than late-30-something action hero. He also lacks the edge of sarcasm that Marsters brought (we thought correctly) to the characterization. We missed Marsters.
This book returns more to the noire gumshoe storylines that made the series famous and that the last book (Changes) kind of dropped, so that was a good thing.
Like all books, there are a couple of plot inconsistencies but on the whole it's a return to roots. It moves the story forward, and (for readers of Changes) brings the series back to a point where you can see it going forward.
On the whole good to get back to Chicago...
