Someone is targeting Chicago's magic practitioners—the members of the supernatural uderclass 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 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...

Things I loved: Gentleman Johnny Marcone. I like him now that we see more of his layers. He's complex, conflicted, and the enemy Harry knows. Rameriz as Harry's warden partner (love him even more now that …

This is a great modern or urban fantasy. I've read the first nine books in the series and don't intend to review all of them, so this is a review of the series. There is a formula to the series, and it becomes a bit too apparent about mid-way through the books I've read, but the writing is good enough to overlook it.

The characters are interesting and the action is well paced. Highly recommended to anyone interested in magic set in the modern world.
