In the first novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling Dresden Files series, Harry Dresden’s investigation of a grisly double murder pulls him into the darkest depths of magical Chicago…
As a professional wizard, Harry Dresden knows firsthand that the “everyday” world is actually full of strange and magical things—and most of them don’t play well with humans. And those that do enjoy playing with humans far too much. He also knows he’s the best at what he does. Technically, he’s the only at what he does. But even though Harry is the only game in town, business—to put it mildly—stinks.
So when the Chicago P.D. bring him in to consult on a double homicide committed with black magic, Harry's seeing dollar signs. But where there's black magic, there's a black mage behind it. And now that mage knows Harry's name...
“A great series—fast-paced, vividly realized and with a hero/narrator who’s excellent company.”—Cinescape

Very nice introduction.
A nice introduction to the world of Dresden. While I was hesitant at first, after the story got going I enjoyed this one a lot, and was ready for more.
So much fun! From beginning to end. Absolutely loved this book. Such a enjoyable read. I cannot express how much I loved this book and how excited I am to continue with this series. Hands down my one of my favorite characters.
As an avid book reader who got my start as a kid reading Harry Potter, the Dresden Files was a terrific transition into adult fantasy fiction. I’ve read through the series multiple times and it is by far my favorite book series of all time. Characters are all fantastic and extremely well written and the stories are always engaging and exciting. Highly recommend these books!!
