My name is Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden. Conjure by it at
your own risk. I'm a wizard. I work out of an office in midtown
Chicago. As far as I know, I'm the only openly practicing professional
wizard in the country. You can find me in the yellow pages, under
Wizards. Believe it or not, I'm the only one there.
With rent past due and a decent meal becoming an issue of some importance, Harry needs work, and soon. A call from a distraught wife, and another from Lt Murphy of the Chicago PD Special Investigation Unit makes Harry believe things are looking up, but they are about to get worse, much worse. Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters...

Comments about Storm Front:
Compared to the tv series that lasted one season, the book series is much more better written.
Comments about Storm Front:
Certainly different in style but loved it-will def.read more of Jim Butcher's work now Ive found him.
Praise for the Dresden Files -Think Buffy the Vampire Slayer starring Philip Marlowe.---Entertainment Weekly-Fans of Laurell K. Hamilton and Tanya Huff will love this series.---Midwest Book Review -Superlative.---Publishers Weekly (starred review) -One of the most enjoyable marriages of the fantasy and mystery genres on the shelves.---Cinescape -Butcher...spins an excellent noirish detective yarn in a well-crafted, supernaturally-charged setting. The supporting cast is again fantastic, and Harry's wit continues to fly in the face of a peril-fraught plot.---Booklist (starred review) -What's not to like about this series?...It takes the best elements of urban fantasy, mixes it with some good old-fashioned noir mystery, tosses in a dash of romance and a lot of high-octane action, shakes, stirs, and serves.---SF Site -A tricky plot complete with against-the-clock pacing, firefights, explosions, and plenty of magic. Longtime series fans as well as newcomers drawn by the SciFi Channel's TV series based on the novels should find this supernatural mystery a real winner.---Library Journal -What would you get if you crossed Spenser with Merlin? Probably you would come up with someone very like Harry Dresden, wizard, tough guy and star of [the Dresden Files].---The Washington Times
