A Good Paranormal Detective Book: Dead Beat by Jim Butcher

The Paranormal Detective series called the "Harry Dresden Files" has done it again. I (Rob) just finished reading
another great book in the series called "Dead Beat." The series is written by Jim Butcher and Harry Dresden is a Wizard in Chicago that confronts all kinds of paranormal problems.
   Harry works with the police to solve paranormal issues, but in this novel he's trying to save his favorite detective's reputation. These books are never dull and always entertaining. I love Harry's character, and he has a half brother he lives with who is a vampire. A new character is introduced here, named Waldo Butters who is a medical examiner who seems scared of his own shadow but comes around. Oh yeah, there's also Harry's dog, too!
  A really great read. - Rob

BOOK SUMMARY FROM AMAZON: When a killer vampire threatens to destroy head of Special Investigations Karrin Murphy's reputation unless Harry delivers the powerful Word of Kemmler to her, he has no choice. Now Harry is in a race against time to find the Word before Chicago experiences a Halloween night to wake the dead.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
