Publisher Comments:

The eagerly awaited new novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling Dresden Files series.

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...

Review:

"Butcher's 13th supernatural crime novel featuring Chicago-based wizard Harry Dresden (after 2010's Changes) is less accessible to newcomers than many of its predecessors, though longtime fans will be gratified. The current volume opens with Dresden in a limbo-like state, after 'a long, long day, battling the forces of evil, destroying the Red Court utterly, rescuing my daughter and murdering her mother — oh, and getting shot to death.' Police captain Collin J. Murphy, the late father of Dresden's longtime ally Karrin, explains that an 'irregularity' with Dresden's death requires him to go back to Chicago to solve his own murder. Dresden obligingly returns to the world he'd just left, experiencing a steep learning curve as he adjusts to his incorporeal state. The usual plot twists and high-stakes combat with an assortment of supernatural beings ought to hold Butcher's fans for another year. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

This book was truly a "can't put it down" read for me. Without giving anything away, Harry Dresden is just impossible to not root for as you read these ridiculous experiences he struggles through with snark and wit. His companions are such likable characters, even moreso for being able to put up with him. This is definitely the sort of story that you'd need to start at book 1 to fully appreciate, but it's worth the read.

Great addition to the Dresden Files universe. Gives a much better feeling of closure than the previous book! :)

This series just keeps getting better and better. I tore through this one in about 24 hours to find out what happens. Then I reread it slowly to savor the humor and character development. I never want this series to end!
