This is Book 5 of the Dresden Files.

I thoroughly enjoyed this was non-stop action from the very beginning. The plot surrounds two main issues: Ortega the Vampire and the missing Shroud of Turin. It might sound simple, but complexity abounds.

Harry is taken to his limits in this book, both physically and emotionally. There is no shortage of nasty demons, ruthless assassins, police conspiracies, double-crossings, moral dilemmas, narrow escapes, and mixed messages from a semi-vampiric superhuman ex-girlfriend.

Harry continues to evolve as a character. Many former characters return and several new ones are introduced. If you have been skeptical about the Dresden Files until now, at least make it through this book. You might find yourself officially hooked.
