    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

    While he doesn't bring the same spin on Harry as James Marsters, John Glover does an excellent job. I really can't understand why everyone has the attitude that no one can do a credible job with this series except James. While everyone is complaining about how bad the narrator is or that this seems to feel like a filler novel i am grateful for another addition to the Dresden files Dossier and look forward to the next entry. Truthfully when i read it or listen to the audiobooks for this series i see and hear Paul Blackthorne as Harry since i saw the show before i read the books. A big thanks to Jim for yet another great book.

    Not even death can save her now. As a grave witch, Alex Craft can speak to the dead---she's even on good terms with Death himself. As a consultant for the police, she's seen a lot of dark magic, but nothing has prepared her for her latest case.

    Overall

    The story was way better when i read it than it was trying to listen to it. The narrator was like a text to speech reader. Most of the emphasis was poorly applied which made it sound like it was cobbled together from individually recorded words.

    Aside from that the story was quite good i will definitely get the next book but i think i will read it myself rather than torture myself listening to a female Will Shatner read it to me. 4/5 for the actual book 1/5 for the audio attempt.
