I'm not a big sci-fi/fantasy fan but I love a good mystery/suspense or action novel. The thing that I like about Butcher is his capability of creating a superb suspense with all possible twists and turns. This is ninth book in the Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher. This whole series is amazing but I think this is the best among all. The hero is Harry Dresden who is a private investigator. In this story, Harry Dresden finds out that women of minor magical talent are being murdered in the Chicago land area. Harry and Murphy find other victims around Chicago and elsewhere. Most of the Chicago victims belong to a witch group known as Ordo Lebes. The victim is his half brother Thomas. Thomas seems to be stronger. Something he can only get when he is absorbing physic energy from humans. Thomas has deep secrets he won't share with Harry. Harry and Murphy find out the truth. Butcher amazes the reader with his clever plot and twists. Butcher's tales are fast paced and the memorable characters and fun dialogues make this book a pleasure read. A typical Harry Dresden fantasy adventure; action packed, fast and fun.
