Book Review: Ghost Story by Jim Butcher

When readers finished the last Dresden novel, Changes, our insolent wizard was most certainly dead. In Ghost Story, Harry is recruited by ghostly detectives to find his own murderer. But, he is dead and as a spirit cannot do much. His magic is non functional in spirit form and his beloved Chicago, and the world in general, is not doing very well. Several varieties of nasty creatures seeking power have started fighting to fill the void left behind when Harry's spell wiped out the Red Court Vampires in Changes. None of this stops Harry from getting in over his head, mouthing off, and doing everything he can to protect the people and city that he cares for. But without a body, without his power, and without the ability to communicate with the majority of the world Harry is in big trouble. Many of our favorite characters from throughout the series make an appearance, and some are in as much trouble as Harry. Before he can concentrate on his own death, Harry has several other missions to save others. Each puts Harry in a harder position and the pressure keeps building. To make matters even worse, it is not only innocent lives at stake, but Harry's very soul.
