Bookworming: Dead Beat

Dead Beat, Jim Butcher, ****
The seventh book in The Dresden Files series continues the pattern of the previous books. It feels even more like a transitional book than its predecessor. It is still a fast paced, fun read like the rest of the series, but there are enough threads from the previous books referred to but left dangling to detract a bit from it. One plot line in particular overshadows the primary plot for large sections of the book. So, a weaker four stars, but still enjoyable for those into the series.
