Bookworming: Proven Guilty

Proven Guilty, Jim Butcher, ****
Yes, I'm still trying to catch up with The Dresden Files series. This is the eighth installment, and for my money the strongest in a while. The main plot is fully contained in this book, the motivations are highly tied into the characters that readers have seen developed over the series, and there are a couple payoffs for long-running threads. And though it certainly sets up for the series to continue, it only does so in fleeting moments and in the denouement of the book rather than leaving the main threads of the story hanging. If it wasn't so tied into the continuity of the series, I could easily give this one five stars.
