Wizard Harry Dresden must investigate his own flesh and blood when a series of killings strike Chicago’s magic practitioners in this novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series. Someone is targeting the members of the city’s supernatural underclass—those who don’t possess enough power to become full-fledged wizards. Some have vanished. Others appear to be victims of suicide. But now the culprit has left a calling card at one of the crime scenes—a message for Harry Dresden.   Harry sets out to find the apparent serial killer, but his investigation turns up evidence pointing to the one suspect he cannot possibly believe guilty: his half-brother, Thomas. To clear his brother’s name, Harry rushes into a supernatural power struggle that renders him outnumbered, outclassed, and dangerously susceptible to temptation.   And Harry knows that if he screws this one up, people will die—and one of them will be his brother...

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Butcher...spins an excellent noirish detective yarn in a well-crafted, supernaturally-charged setting. The supporting cast is again fantastic, and Harry’s wit continues to fly in the face of a peril-fraught plot. Booklist (starred review)
One of the most enjoyable marriages of the fantasy and mystery genres on the shelves. Cinescape
What’s not to like about this series?...It takes the best elements of urban fantasy, mixes it with some good old-fashioned noir mystery, tosses in a dash of romance and a lot of high-octane action, shakes, stirs, and serves. SF Site
A tricky plot complete with against-the-clock pacing, firefights, explosions, and plenty of magic. Longtime series fans as well as newcomers drawn by the SciFi Channel’s TV series based on the novels should find this supernatural mystery a real winner. Library Journal
What would you get if you crossed Spenser with Merlin? Probably you would come up with someone very like Harry Dresden, wizard, tough guy and star of [the Dresden Files]. The Washington Times
Superlative. Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Fans of Laurell  K. Hamilton and Tanya Huff will love this series. Midwest Book Review  
Think Buffy the Vampire Slayer starring Philip Marlowe. Entertainment Weekly
“The eighth book of the Dresden Files is one hell of a good read, propelled by Harry Dresden’s sardonic narration and a difficult mystery with a satisfying, if somewhat melancholy, conclusion. During the action-packed, fast-paced narrative, Harry moves from one crisis to another with barely a chance to catch his breath. The political machinations are fascinating, as are the moral choices that Harry and his allies are forced to make.” RT Book Reviews
“Longtime fans of Butcher’s series, as well as new devotees of the Sci-Fi Channel's Dresden Files show, should thoroughly enjoy Butcher’s latest romp through Chicago’s paranormal underworld. Barnes & Noble editorial review
“[A] superlative...novel.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“As usual in the Dresden Files...Butcher puts the characters in a lot of danger, creates appalling moral choices for them, and spins an excellent noirish detective yarn in a well-crafted, supernaturally charged setting. The supporting cast is again fantastic, and Harry’s wit continues to fly in the face of a peril-fraught plot.” Booklist (starred review)
“The latest in Butcher’s supernatural noir series...delivers a tricky plot complete with against-the-clock pacing, firefights, explosions, and plenty of magic...A real winner.” Library Journal
