Publisher's Summary

Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard, is about to have a very bad day.…

Because as Winter Knight to the Queen of Air and Darkness, Harry never knows what the scheming Mab might want him to do. Usually, it’s something awful.

He doesn’t know the half of it.…

Mab has just traded Harry's skills to pay off one of her debts. And now he must help a group of supernatural villains - led by one of Harry's most dreaded and despised enemies, Nicodemus Archleone - to break into the highest-security vault in town, so that they can then access the highest-security vault in the Nevernever.

It's a smash-and-grab job to recover the literal Holy Grail from the vaults of the greatest treasure hoard in the supernatural world - which belongs to the one and only Hades, Lord of the freaking Underworld and generally unpleasant character. Worse, Dresden suspects that there is another game afoot that no one is talking about. And he's dead certain that Nicodemus has no intention of allowing any of his crew to survive the experience. Especially Harry.

Dresden's always been tricky, but he's going to have to up his backstabbing game to survive this mess - assuming his own allies don’t end up killing him before his enemies get the chance.…

    "Great ending to a great series"

    I had to stop halfway through listening because I dreaded the series ending. I finally found an appropriate time I finished the book. Well done and many loose ends tied up.
    As always for me I worry I won't find a decent replacement for this series.

    "Best one yet!"

    Jim butcher has been writing and James masters has been performing these for years now. Not only do they never disappoint, they each get better than the last.

    "another great dresden files story"

    Masterfully done by the Narrator James Masters, an easy read, or listen. Good story flow, great character moments, and right bloody mess for all involved. I listen to it often.

    In my opinion, a good story evokes emotion. It'll make me laugh, angry, or cry. But it can't just be words on a page. It has to do something

    "Loved it!!!"

    I'm not sure what makes this book so good, the author or the narrator. Both are excellent. so many characters, so many voices, and so much action. Without giving spoilers, this book kept me guessing up to the end. It even made me want to learn about Harry's interesting new sport. I recommend buying this book.

    "Warm and fuzzy"

    A very complicated game that Harry Dresden is more than up to the challenge. A bit of Maltese Falcon meets Raiders of the lost ark kinda mystery. As always James Marsters does an excellent job in portraying each character superbly, as well as setting the overall tone and atmosphere.
