Ghost Story

Ghost Story (Dresden Files #13) - Jim Butcher 8.00   18

Harry Dresden has forgotten his own golden rule. Magic – it can get a guy killed. This didn’t help when he clashed with parties unknown, with his murder in mind. And though Harry’s continued existence is in some doubt, this doesn’t mean rest or peace lie in store for Chicago's resident professional wizard.

Trapped in a realm that is not quite here, yet not quite anywhere else, Harry learns that three of his loved ones are destined for crippling torment unless he can do something. Only by discovering his assailant’s identity can he save his friends, bring criminal elements to justice, and move on before he becomes trapped in his own unending nightmare.

It would be easier if he knew which three friends were in danger. And had a (working) crystal ball. And had access to his magic. Instead, he must accomplish the task unable to interact with the physical world, invisible and inaudible to all but the most specialized magical talents. He is also from the only silent presence roaming Chicago's alleys. Heck, he put some of them there himself. Now, they're looking for payback.
