Dewey, former Army Ranger and Delta, survives the attack, rescuing as many of his men as possible. But the battle has just begun....

When the bookshop next to the Honeybee Bakery hosts a signing for a Savannah radio celebrity's new self-help book, magical baker Katie Lightfoot is happy to provide some delectable desserts. The whole spellbook club is going to the event, curious about the book (and maybe to sample some goodies), but the final chapter comes too soon for the author when she is found dead at the event. The prime suspect is Angie Kissel, a former witch whose familiar was once Katie's own terrier, Mungo.

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....

What other book might you compare Ghost Story to and why?

Shadow of Night because both stories take the heroes out of their normal realm and how they cope & triumph over their circumstance. And both give you twists & turns you do not expect.

Which scene was your favorite?

Molly's mental fortress and Harry waking up in his body.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Bucket List for the Dearly Departed

Any additional comments?

Absolutely loved John Glover's narration, he really embodys for me what Harry would sound like if he was real.
