Harry's old rival/parole officer/overeager potential executioner Morgan appears on Harry's doorstep.
He's been accused of murder and treason but escaped the Wardens. Now his own men are after him.
The only way to clear Morgan's name is to find the real traitor on the White Council and expose them. Of course, Harry isn't exactly on friendly terms with most of the council, so if he's not careful, he's just going to end up getting killed right along with Morgan.Have we mentioned how much he dislikes Morgan
is book #11 in The Dresden Files
. Has its own shout out
Turn Coat provides examples of the following tropes:
- Actually Pretty Funny: Molly tries not to grin when Morgan gets Harry to point to his head and say, "I've got nothing going on in here at the moment."
- Advantage Ball: Harry is smart with the climax and actually sought a place to give him a better chance of winning. He choose the mysterious island from Small Favor and invoked Sanctum with it.
- Affably Evil: Lara Raith describes herself as an "affable monster." Then she eats her cousin alive. Literally.
- All Love Is Unrequited:
- Morgan has pined for Luccio for over two centuries. She never let it go beyond Teacher and Student.
- Molly still pines for Harry.
- Harry loves Luccio but she doesn't love him, not for the reasons with Morgan, but her mind was twisted and was forced to "love" him.
- And This Is for...: During the final confrontation with the skinwalker, Harry punctuates each spell by yelling the name of a friend or family member that the villain has hurt, and uses the emotion from that name to fuel his spells.
- Apparently Powerless Puppetmaster: The Council's secretary with his mind-controlling inks.
