Storm Front by Jim Butcher

stormfrontBook – In Storm Front, Jim Butcher introduces Chicago’s own wizard named Harry, Harry Dresden. The sarcastic yet vulnerable Harry derives much of his living from consulting for local law enforcement. The detective story format used for Harry’s stories gives them a 1940s’ film noir quality. In this introduction to Harry’s world, he is called in to investigate a double homicide, apparently committed with dark magic. His investigation is complicated because he’s trying not to taint his own reputation after a mysterious death in his past placed him on probation under the rule of the wizard’s council. This 300 page book is a quick read with plenty of inventive action and mysteries to unravel. Butcher has created a detailed world of magic as well as a memorable cast of characters that inspired the TV series The Dresden Files. The library collection contains 15 books in this series as well as eMedialibrary editions such as eAudiobooks that are performed with the well matched narration of James Marsters (who played Spike on Buffy the Vampire Slayer).
