    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    Story

    As many others have said, this book without Marsters narrating it is just not up to the rest of the series. I just finished reading the ebook, and it was great, so no problems on that end. (Yes, I read them then listen to them as well. Sue me.) While I normally like John Glover a lot, and was willing to take the risk to listen to this with his narration, I really wish I hadn't. Marsters set a standard narrating this series that probably can't be met with anyone else---like listening to the Aubrey/Maturin series with anyone but Patrick Tull as narrator.

    I wish I had my credit back for this one. If the reason that Marsters didn't narrate this book was a scheduling conflict, then next time, it would be better for Penguin to wait to release the book when Marsters was available. I think they've traded total sales for a quick release. Bad move.

    If you like Marsters narration, my advice: get the book or ebook, but skip this audio version.
