A very enjoyable blend of film noir/hard boiled detective with fantasy. It does differ from the show in that Harry is more geeky/shubbly...and funnier than the television version of the character. I loved some of the small touches that run through the series of books, such as his magic often breaks any high tech device he comes near, his long suffering car, and his apartment-which is his verison of Baker Street-with his faithful assistant, a arguementative ghost only he can see. Lots of back story about his parents, his checkered past, which are introduced and explored in future books to different degrees. Its a shame Sci Fi channel didn't give the show the chance it deserved, but I take solace in the fact that the books are much better, and more original than the scripts the show used.
