I wish it was about 20 hours longer
Yeap. This book introduced Butters, a Chicago medical examiner, and a perfect foil to Dresden. Jim Butcher's books are always peppered with humor, but between Butters, the almost full-grown Mouse, and a third plot point (that I will not spoil) this book was one guffaw after another. Past Dresden books have been dark, with Harry just getting pummeled time and time again. Harry picks up some new bruises and sutures in this book too, but the whole tone of the story is lighter.
Avoiding Spoliers: Right towards the end, when Harry finds the perfect weapon against the baddies. I rewound that scene twice before moving on with the rest of the book
Polka will never die!
