Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden series moves forward through well-defined episodes, each novel complete and compelling in itself, and each providing yet another scene in a whole that's still being created. Turn Coat is no exception--a fascinating story filled with twists and turns as wizard Dresden finds his long-standing arch-enemy collapsed on his doorstep and begging for help. There are fascinating, and thoroughly thought-provoking arguments about the merits of black-and-white adherence to rules and those ever-gray areas of human compassion and concern. There's the mystery of someone passing secrets and framing wizard wardens. There's the excitement of a super-powerful magical foe, and the horror of what he might do to Dresden's super-powerful, super-cool brother. Good people do bad, and grayly almost-bad things. Bad people do almost-good things. Strange alliances form for strange times. And Harry Dresden again proves to be capable simultaneously of more and less than he thinks he is. Turn Coat is another thrill-ride, filled with the author's trade-mark angst and insightful commentary, and told with the protagonist's self-deprecating good humor and wisdom. I loved it. But of course, I knew I would. And I'm eagerly waiting for more.
