Book Three of The Dresden Files: Grave Peril by Jim Butcher

Grave PerilAfter the first two books I was like there is absolutely no way that Jim Butcher can put poor our poor wizard, Harry Dresden, through anymore abuse and near death experiences without, well, just killing him. Needless to say, I was wrong. I am not sure we even make it through a dozen pages before ghosts start hurtling the wizard through the air into a fiery inferno. Good stuff.

In Grave Peril, ghosts are haunting amok in Chicago. But what has the supernatural world in such a dangerous tizzy? And why does it seem like Harry’s friends are their targets? Who or what is behind opening the door between our world and the nevernever and torturing the spirits? Dresden has never encountered this sort of paranormal activity in all his years of sleuthing, but unless he can figure it out, this nightmare will literally consume him. Oh, did I mention there were also vampires? Because yes, lots and lots and lots of vampires.

To say this mystery is a fast-paced thrilling adventure would be a
grave understatement.
