Storm Front Book One of the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher

Storm Front Book One of the Dresden Files
Harry’s classified reads as follows:

Lost Items Found. Paranormal Investigations. Consulting. Advice. Reasonable Rates.
No Love Potions, Endless Purses, Parties, or Other Entertainment.

That’s right, Harry is a wizard in modern day Chicago and you can hire him if you need help finding your car keys or what is going bump in the middle of the night up in your attic. Well that is when he is not helping out the Chicago P.D. decipher their own paranormal investigations.

In Storm Front, Book One of the Dresden Files, Lieutenant Karrin Murphy needs Dresden’s help on a gruesome double homicide. It does not take Harry long to know that black magic is behind these deaths. What Harry doesn’t know is the trouble he is about to encounter with vampires, toad demons, gangsters, fairies, killer scorpions, a sexy journalist, and one irate Chicago Police Lieutenant.

I enjoyed the storyline and Jim Butcher’s humor in this book but then I also enjoyed the brief TV series where Dresden used a hockey stick as his staff. I was disappointed when the series was canceled and did not think the Sci-Fi Channel did right by it.
