Fool Moon by Jim Butcher - a review

Guest Author - Laura Lehman

When a series of gruesome murders plague the city of Chicago, lieutenant Karrin Murphy knows just who to call-- Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard for hire. When Harry arrives at the latest scene, Karrin shows him the shredded corpse and unusual footprints that are similar to those found at several other recent cases. Add to this the fact that each murder takes place during a full moon and Harry is thinking werewolves. But he discovers even this is complicated. Are the murderers hexenwolves, lycanthropes or loup garou? And why is the FBI trying to keep him and Murphy from investigating? Everything points to a dispute between organized crime figure Johnny Marcone and philanthropist Harley MacFinn, but Harry feels there is much more going on than what they first suspect.

Fool Moon by Jim Butcher is the second in the Harry Dresden series and takes place six months after the events of Storm Front and as such continues to explore some of the issues between Harry and Karrin from the first book. Foremost is the issue of trust-- can Karrin really trust Harry? Throughout the book she continues to question just how truthful he is with her. And while Harry tries to do as he see right (even when it goes against his sense of survival) he always seems to get himself into trouble.

My Recommendation
Jim Butcher's Fool Moon is a quick paced and action filled follow up to Storm Front. There's enough of a separate plot to hold it's own and just enough details to tie it into the events of the previous story. While some of the character elements build on the previous book, it's not necessary to have read Storm Front. But both books are such a quick and enjoyable read that you might as well start with the first in the series. I highly recommend both Fool Moon and Storm Front.
