Author(s): 

This book is mainly about the choices made by Harry Dresden — some good, a lot bad — that have led him to this particular crossroads in his life. Readers looking for an examination of the moral gray areas inherent in paranormal fantasy will probably enjoy this book, despite the meandering plot and repetitive self-flagellation by Harry.

Harry is having a really unpleasant year. His home has been destroyed, his life is in a shambles and to top it all off, he’s dead. And he has no idea who killed him. When he gets the chance to return to the mortal plane as a ghost he jumps at the opportunity. Without access to his magic, Harry discovers a Chicago that’s colder and darker than the one he left — in the vacuum left in the wake of the destruction of the Red Court, all sorts of supernatural nasties have come out of the woodwork to fill it. Harry’s first task is to make himself known to his friends and allies. His second will be to solve his own murder — while making sure no one else gets hurt. (ROC, Aug., 432 pp., $27.95)
