Cursed, by Benedict Jacka

This is the second book in Mr. Jacka's series featuring Alex Verus, a mage who can see somewhat into the future and who solves problems for the good guys.   The library didn't have the first volume, but I figured I'd jump right in.

If you're familiar with James Butcher's series, "The Dresden Files," then you'll see similarities.  Make no mistake though: Mr. Butcher is the master, and Mr. Jacka is - at least in this episode - still the apprentice.

While not fabulous, it was interesting; I'm going to read the next book in the sequence.
