    Dexter Morgan is not your average serial killer. He enjoys his day job as a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department... but he lives for his nighttime hobby of hunting other killers. Dexter is therefore not pleased to discover that someone is shadowing him, observ­ing him, and copying his methods. Dexter is not one to tol­erate displeasure... in fact, he has a knack for extricating himself from trouble in his own pleasurable way.

    Jake Sullivan is a licensed private eye with a seriously hardboiled attitude. He also possesses raw magical talent and the ability to make objects in his vicinity light as a feather or as heavy as depleted uranium, all with a magical thought. It's no wonder the G-men turn to Jake when they need someoneto go after a suspected killer who has been knocking off banks in a magic-enhanced crime spree.

    Clinton says: "Not what I thought it was going to be."
    "Awesome!"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, keeps your attention and has good twists and turns


    What does Bronson Pinchot bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He does an amazing narrating job, giving each character more depth than they would have if you just read the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended, but be sure you do not get distracted while listening, or you will need to back up and re-listen to what you have missed!

    Here, together for the first time, are the shorter works of best-selling author Jim Butcher - a compendium of cases that Harry and his cadre of allies managed to close in record time. The tales range from the deadly serious to the absurdly hilarious.

    If you could sum up Side Jobs in three words, what would they be?

    Great background info!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Side Jobs?

    I love the two with Thomas & Karin doing the narrating, nice new perspective on Harry :)


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Harry's "expression" while trying to explain all the naked people in his apartment


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yep! Made myself drag it out, so I could enjoy it while I work.

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    Story

    After reading the other reviews about Mr Glover's performance, I was very skeptical as I started listening to this book. I love Mr Marsters' Harry Dresden and I was not looking forward to a change. Well, I was delighted to be proven wrong. Mr Glover does a fabulous job with all the characters, Harry included!

    While I still do not understand nor agree with changing an actor this far into a series, Mr Glover is to be commended on stepping into some big shoes and filling them very nicely ;) The story had me giggling and/or teary eyed in several spots, and is filled with the usual action and odd twists and funny one liners at which Mr Buthcher is so adept. Enjoy!

    Alexia Tarabotti, Lady Maccon, has settled into domestic bliss. Of course, being Alexia, such bliss involves integrating werewolves into London High society, living in a vampire's second best closet, and coping with a precocious toddler who is prone to turning supernatural willy-nilly. Even Ivy Tunstell's acting troupe's latest play, disastrous to say the least, cannot put a damper on Alexia's enjoyment of her new London lifestyle.

    What does Emily Gray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Again, accent/voices

    Mummys cause supernatural chaos to be put down by a woman with no soul, but a lot of heart!

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Just as Jane Jameson’s unlife seems to be stabilizing, fate sinks its fangs firmly into her butt. Despite her near-phobia of wedding planning, her no-frills nighttime nuptials to her sexy boyfriend, Gabriel, are coming along smoothly. That is, until she turns a fatally wounded teenage acquaintance, and the Council pronounces her responsible for the newborn vamp until he can control his thirst.

    Kirstin says: "Molly Did it Again!!!"
