White Night by Jim Butcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
That's two Dresden Files novels in a row for me this Halloween. This one deals a little bit more with the Hitchcockian archetype of the man falsely accused of a grave crime - or, in this case, many grave crimes, as our friendly neighborhood White Court vampire Thomas is the prime suspect in a series of serial killings in which the real killer leaves a reference to a certain Bible verse at each scene: "Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live."
Naturally, Harry will take it upon himself to prove his half-brother's innocence. Because after the last book, it seems like "innocent until proven guilty" no longer exists in this world.
Not if our favorite wizard in the Yellow Pages has anything to say about it, of course.
