Summary
When a couple is murdered by someone who exploded their hearts, Professional wizard Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is called upon by the Chicago police to find answers to this especially gruesome murder because it involved the use of black magic. Dresden needs the money to pay his rent and agrees to help. Soon he is not only looking for the killer, but is also the prime suspect. And, as Harry knows better than anyone, any time the supernatural is explored, things can turn deadly in a hurry.
Critique
This is the first book in Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files series. Harry is a witty, smart-alecky character, who spices up his hard-boiled crime solving with vampires, faeries, gnomes, and even his own tutor Bob, the ghost of a wizard condemned to live in his own skull for eternity. Written in a style similar to Laurell K. Hamilton.
