With rent past due and a decent meal becoming an issue of some importance, Harry needs work, and soon. 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.

This is my 2nd or 3rd time re-listening to this series. I enjoyed watching Dresden grow and develop in each new book and the narrator is excellent.
Yes. If you like reading any fantasy with magic you will love this series.
There are many memorable moments in this series. But the prevailing humor under stressful situations binds you to the main character's personality.
He does an amazing job of portraying the authors droll humor that makes this series great.
Both. Laughing out loud many times while listening to this series made two of my family members listen to it too.
Again go read/listen to it now!
Loved author's different series so decided to dive into this one. Great read! But the audio quality was little low but that comparing to newer books
Yes. I think the narration adds to the book, any book, but especially books about fantsy.
The way the wizard was developed and interacted with humans.
Yes. I like the series and will be listening to others in the series.

At first I was a little leery about Marsters playing Dresden, but after a few minutes, I was pleased. In fact, I can't read Dresden without hearing Marsters' interpretation of his voice. Jim Butcher's novel is fast paced and an interesting read. The only complaint I have about this particular production is that there were times when I felt that the audio was lacking. But Marsters reads almost like he's speaking directly to the listener without the "reader" quality some audiobooks can have. Listen to the preview clip to make sure that you like his delivery.
Absolutely. A quick, fun, albeit very dark, read. James Marsters is a fantastic narrator; he gives a very intimate performance.
To my friends who like mysteries and magic. The subject matter turned out a lot grittier and darker than I anticipated so I know some of my friends won't like it, but I would encourage them to give it a chance.
Unquestioningly, Marsters' Harry Dresden is a spot on, richly done performance.
This was entertaining, kind of silly, not a waste of credit but I will not be reading the other books in the series.
