“The wildest, strangest, best Dresden adventure to date...Butcher’s blending of modern fantasy with classic noir sensibilities ensures that there’s never a dull moment.”—SF Site
Paranormal investigations are Harry Dresden’s business and Chicago is his beat, as he tries to bring law and order to a world of wizards and monsters that exists alongside everyday life. And though most inhabitants of the Windy City don’t believe in magic, the Special Investigations Department of the Chicago PD knows better.
Karrin Murphy is the head of S. I. and Harry’s good friend. So when a killer vampire threatens to destroy Murphy’s reputation unless Harry does her bidding, he has no choice. The vampire wants the Word of Kemmler (whatever that is) and all the power that comes with it. Now, Harry is in a race against time—and six merciless necromancers—to find the Word before Chicago experiences a Halloween night to wake the dead...

  • Lisa A.

    Once I start one of these books I can't stop listening till its over. Each one leaves me dying for more.

  • Sally M

    One of my very favorite Dresden novels. Butters is a blast. Dead Beat is equal amounts excitement and humor, often both at the same time. I love Masters' voice for Dresden and many other characters, but his inflection (emphasizing too many words in many sentences) still annoys me at times.

  • Warren Troy

    This is a great series and they have chosen a wonderful narrator. He really brings the stories alive!

  • Susan Eichelberger

    I love this series and I think James Marsters brings Harry and friends to life like no one else could. I am dying for Peace Talks to come out.

  • Kathleen Golding

    Best thing to happen to long car rides. Thanks Dresden for keeping me company.

  • William Morris

    Any book by Jim Butcher is bound to be a good book
