Harry Dresden is Chicago’s only wizard who works as a private investigator. I’ve enjoyed the first four books in this series (you can read my reviews here). Death Masks is the fifth book in the series and Jim Butcher jams it with action. A dangerous vampire from the Red Court challenges Dresden to a duel. Then group of hit men target Dresden and his VW Blue Beetle.
But the key plot line in Death Masks concerns Dresden being hired to find the stolen Shroud of Turin. The Shroud becomes a key element in a devastating spell of evil.
And, on top of all this, Dresden’s ex-girl friend, Susan (part vampire) , shows up and complicates his life. The pages fly by when I read a Harry Dresden novel. I read Death Masks in a day. Great fun! If you enjoy Urban Fantasy action novels, you’ll get a kick out of Death Masks. Are you a fan of Urban Fantasy? GRADE: B+
