I finished listening to the first Dresden files book last night - Storm Front, by Jim Butcher. I had the audiobook version read by James Marsters. I'm already a few chapters into the second book, Fool Moon. I get the feeling that by the end of the week, I'll have finished that too. Harry Dresden is a consultant with the Chicago Special Investigations unit. He's also a Wizard Private Investigator. He uses magic to catch the bad guys. He is wonderful and I love him.
Right at this moment I am watching Dexter, a new television series based on the Dexter books by Jeff Lindsay. I feel somewhat morally ambiguous to be liking Dexter so much. He's a sociopathic serial killer who is a forensics blood splatter specialist for the Miami police. He kills 'acceptable' victims - other killers, mostly. I find him an interesting character on multiple levels.
Really, I should be reading the books of both of these myself, but these options appeal to me more. They're also more readily available at this moment in time.
I find myself wondering if there are any Dresden & Dexter crossovers already in existence. It wouldn't surprise me. The thought is morbidly tempting.
