    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....

    "Narrator OK, but story is a disappointment"
    Overall

    I have been a Harry Dresden fan for years and have recently gone back and listened to the preceding books so I could be up to date for this one. While the narrator isn???t the same, unlike others, I feel he did a credible job. No, he isn???t Marsters, but he did do a good job with the story.

    I am disappointed by the story itself. I feel this book was one long breast-beating, self-examination soliloquy after another ??? the angst factor is very high. The first half absolutely plodded along but finally did pick up. The supporting characters haven't the depth I???ve come to expect, they feel almost ???throw-away???. Scenes feel disjointed and haven't the flow as in past books. I had the bad guy figured out almost immediately. This review may sound harsh and I don???t mean it???s a bad story. The book is OK - but just OK. I just feel letdown as this is not the superior level of writing I???ve always enjoyed with the Dresden series.

    A call from a distraught wife, and another from Lt Murphy of the Chicago PD Special Investigation Unit makes Harry believe things are looking up, but they are about to get worse, much worse. Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters.

    A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light”. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all.
