The new novel in the hit New York Times bestselling Dresden Files series.
The Warden Morgan has been accused of treason against the Wizards of the White Council--and there's only one, final punishment for that crime. He's on the run, wants his name cleared, and needs someone with a knack for backing the underdog. Someone like Harry Dresden...
Now, Harry must uncover a traitor within the Council, keep a less-than-agreeable Morgan under wraps, and avoid coming under scrutiny himself. And a single mistake may cost someone his head--someone like Harry
The search for a traitor in the highest circles of power forms the main plot thread of Butcher's 11th hard-boiled fantasy novel featuring Chicago's wizard detective Harry Dresden (last seen in 2008's Small Favor). Harry, a warden of the magic-governing White Council, finds himself in an unusual position when Morgan, his fellow warden and frequent antagonist, asks for his help. One of the White Council's leaders has been murdered, and Morgan was found at the scene of the crime holding the murder weapon. If he has been framed, then another senior wizard is behind the killing and may be trying to destroy the council entirely. Aided by werewolf and vampire allies, Dresden investigates with his trademark sardonic noir flair. Despite the sprawling plot, both fans and newcomers will get into the fast-paced action. (Apr.)

1 . Excellent
Posted June 24, 2010 by LG , NashvilleI have read the entire series. With each book, the story gets better and better.
2 . Twisty-Turny
Posted December 08, 2009 by Jabberwock , Savannah, GAThe Dresden Files has become a true fan favorite with good reason. This story just adds to the great collection. The story is one twist after another and in the end the series is completely changed becuse of it. A great read with a lot of shocking developments.
3 . Excellent Read
Posted May 18, 2009 by Bruce , DenverI've been reading these books since late last year. I was very happy to see the new one come out. The ending surprised me which is always nice, but the enemy was predictable (it's always the unlikely person briefly mentioned at the beginning of the book). Still an excellent read as Dresden learns more about himself and others.
4 . Fast moving/differant
