A series of apparent suicides rings alarm bells with the police. And before he knows it Harry Dresden, professional wizard, is hired to investigate. At the first crime scene he finds an unmistakable magical taint - and a message specially designed for him, referencing the killing of witches. Harry is desperate to hunt down his tormentor and halt the killings, but instead finds evidence implicating his half-brother, Thomas. To Harry, this just doesn't add up, so he must add clearing his brother's name to his expanding list. Something that didn't make the list is subtlety, and Harry's search attracts the attention of the White Court of vampires ...Soon, whichever way he turns, he faces a power struggle that will render him outnumbered, outclassed and dangerously susceptible to temptation. And if he screws up, his friends will die.

White Night (Jim Butcher)
I had eagerly awaited this latest book in the Harry Dresden files, and it did not disappoint me! It had all the earmarks of the earlier stories--magic, warmth, humour, familiar characters evolving still more, a heck of a battle near the end, and a very nice last two or three pages! My cherished hope about Justine finally healing was realized, although she and Thomas still cannot touch each other without harm. I am hoping that Jim Butcher will find some way round this in future books, and Thomas and Justine can finally put their arms round each other and share their true love. This is one of my favourite series, and I am hopping about from foot to foot in impatience for the follow-up to WHITE NIGHT!! If you like wizards, you will love Harry Dresden--but do read the books from the first one until you reach WHITE NIGHT.
Publishers Weekly, 2007-02-26 At the start of Butcher's superlative ninth Dresden Files novel (after 2006's Proven Guilty), hardboiled wizard detective Harry Dresden learns that someone is killing Chicago's minor wizards. Joined by his police friend, Sergeant Murphy, and his Amazonian apprentice, Molly Carpenter, Harry discovers that his brother, Thomas, is a prime suspect. As a Warden of the White Council, at war with both the Red Court of blood-drinking vampires and the White Court of psychic vampires, Harry has to go into action. And there's plenty of that, including a battle with ghouls on the lakefront that turns into a gripping flashback of another encounter with ghouls some years before in New Mexico. The large cast features such finely drawn characters as gangster Gentleman Johnnie Marcone and Harry's first love, Elaine Mallory. This installment is sure to get a lift from The Dresden Files TV series, which debuted on the Sci-Fi Channel in January. Author tour. (Apr.)(c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
