This is the eleventh book in the Dresden Files. You don’t want to start with this one, there’s far too much in the book building on stuff already established. I’d recommend anyone new to the books to start with book 4. The first three were a complete slog to get through for me. The audio book versions, read by James Marsters, are all highly recommended.
Harry Dresden is extremely surprised when Morgan, the wizard whose probably shown the most animosity towards Harry in the past, shows up at his doorstep and asks for his help. Morgan has been accused of murdering one of the wizards on the senior council. He was found over the murder victim with the murder weapon in his hand, and there was six million dollars wired into his account just before the murder was committed. He knows no one would suspect him of asking Harry for aid, and he also knows that Harry may be the only one who can help him track down the real murderer.
Harry is hesitant to help Morgan at first, after all, the man has tried to kill him several times. He realises that for Morgan to have been framed, there must be a traitor high up in the ranks of the White Council and that’s going to have farther reaching consequences than just Morgan being executed for a crime he didn’t commit. Of course, by sheltering Morgan from the White Council, Harry is risking his own life, and that of Molly, his apprentice. Full review.
