Storm Front, by Jim Butcher

This is Mr. Butcher's first in his series of Dresden Files novels.  The hero, Harry Dresden, is a wizard.  He's a good guy, works with the police, and tries to help people.   Unfortunately, it seems to be in vogue for the hero to have flaws, and Dresden's flaws are numerous.  So much so that they go, at least for me, beyond the line of cute and fully into the sphere of annoying.

The plot was interesting.  The character set was rather hackneyed.  And my continued lack of empathy for the main character is what leads to my so-so review of the book, and my decision to not bother reading the rest of Mr. Butcher's series.
