It took me a long time to get around to this series, and I wish I'd started sooner! It's a light urban fantasy about a professional wizard, Harry Dresden, who is asked to help with a murder investigation that is obviously connected to black magic. Unfortunately, Harry's profession makes him a suspect. If he doesn't find the real killer fast, he'll be in serious trouble not just with the law but with the wizard council who already have him on a short leash. And with them, punishment won't be jail time but execution.

I really enjoyed the fast pace and snappy dialogue. While I thought there were a few moments when the story faltered, Butcher still keeps it tight, and I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.
